Lyrics

Yeah, the big boss man, he likes to crack that whip
I ain’t nothing but a number on his time card slip
I give him 40 hours and a piece of my soul
Puts me somewhere at the bottom of his totem pole
Hell, I don’t even think he knows my name
Hey, all week long I’m a real nobody
But I just punched out and it’s paycheck Friday
Weekend’s here, good God almighty
I’m going to get drunk and be somebody (somebody)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
My baby cuts hair at a beauty boutique
Just blowing and going ’til she dead on her feet
They walk right in and sit right down
She gives them what they want, and she spins them around
Hey, I don’t think they even know her name
All week long, she’s a real nobody
But I just picked her up, and it’s paycheck Friday
Weekend’s here, good God almighty
Baby, let’s get drunk and be somebody (somebody)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
We’re just average people, in an everyday bar
Driving from work in our ordinary cars
And I like to come here with regular Joes
Drink all you want, be the star of the show
All week long, bunch of real nobodies
But we just punched out and it’s paycheck Friday
Weekend’s here, good God almighty
People, let’s get drunk (let’s get drunk)
All week long we’re some real nobodies
But we just punched out, it’s paycheck Friday
Weekend’s here, good God almighty
People, let’s get drunk and be somebody (let’s get drunk)
Yeah, yeah, yeah/.
