LyricsEdit

Monday had a sad child
Always feeling lowdown
Tuesday had a dream child
She's always on the go
So, I'm in love with Saturday's child

Every time I take her out at night
(She drives me wild)
You wanna kiss her, hold her way uptight
(Gonna spend my time)
You can tell the future's looking bright
(Making sure that Saturday's child is mine)

If you love a Wednesday
You'll live your life apart, now
And if you love a Thursday
She's gonna break your heart
So, I'm in love with Saturday's child

Every time I hold her close, you'll see
(She drives me wild)
You can feel the thrill that's gonna be
(Gonna spend my time)
Now the future has a guarantee
(Making sure that Saturday's child is mine)

Seven days of the week made to choose from
But only one is right for me
I know that Saturday's got what it takes, babe
I can tell by the way she looks at me

Oh

Friday likes the good life
She'll take you for a ride, now
And Sunday makes a good wife
She wants to be a bride
So I'm in love with Saturday's Child

Every time I take her out at night
(She drives me wild)
You wanna kiss her, hold her way uptight
(Gonna spend my time)
You can tell the future's looking bright
(Making sure that Saturday's child is mine)

(Saturday's child)
Every time I take her out at night
(She drives me wild)
You wanna kiss her, hold her way uptight
(Gonna spend my time)
You can tell the future's looking bright
(Making sure that Saturday's child is mine) ...
