Well, here's to the people on Monday to Friday,
With sweat from their bodies they get the job done;
Six in the morning to six in the evening,
They're thinking 'bout Saturday night and some fun.

Monday is over, just four more days sober,
Raising our glass, bringing cheers in the bar;
Tuesday we're bitchin' from work to the kitchen,
Why did they shove Saturday off so far?

Wednesday it's clear that we're now half way there,
Our stomachs are growlin', our throats they are dry;
Feel a small flicker come from my old ticker,
To tell you the truth, well, I thought I'd just die.

Here's to the people who sweat through the work week,
They leave in the mornin' and come home at night;
All with the same things runnin' through their minds:
Going out drinking on Saturday night.

Well, come Thursday morning I hear the same warning,
Better come straight home when work it is done;
After the slavin' I'm fighting the cravin',
Think I'll stop in with the boys and have one.

Come Friday evening be no more grieving,
On Monday, well, Friday was so out of sight;
Paycheck and work clothes and some of our buddies,
Priming ourselves up for Saturday night.

Here's to the people who sweat through the work week,
They leave in the mornin' and come home at night;
All with the same things runnin' through their minds:
Going out drinking on Saturday night.

Come Sunday morning my head is a-poundin',
I swear that I'm quittin', I'll not drink again;
But soon as the work starts we'll get back to thinking,
We're going out drinking on Saturday night.

Here's to the people who sweat through the work week,
They leave in the mornin' and come home at night;
All with the same things runnin' through their minds:
Going out drinking on Saturday night.
