Lyrics

Monday comes crashing in
And all the world looks grey again
Faces on the train seem grim
When yesterday the same were smiling
Another the week to kill
Another week where time stands still
And shuffling masses feel the chill
That comes with their routine
The working scene…

Crawl out of bed and then
I turn on MTV again
To watch the same songs I can't stand
They sing of love and being happy
Look there's another one
That sounds just like the other one
A video without a song
This being famous war
Frustrates me more

But at the weekend
Well, everything will be okay (at the weekend darling)
At the weekend, I'll tell the world
That for five long days I've been wanting to say
Wanting to say, yeah yeah

I wanna, I wanna
I wanna ride upon a five mile tide
Of surprise and oblivion
In rain or shine I'm waiting at the front line
I need it, I need it, like you would not believe it
And I've been dying to change
(I've been dying to change) my ways
‘cos I've been dry for five long days

I'll put the world to right
I'll fly like superman in flight
I'll eat the day and drink the night
And everyone will be there with me
This week I've seen it through
On autopilot just like you
And now there's nothing left to do
‘cept anything at all
Let's hit the wall

But at the weekend
Well, everything will be okay (at the weekend darling)
At the weekend, I'll tell the world
That for five long days I've been wanting to say

I wanna, I wanna
I wanna ride upon a five mile tide
Of surprise and oblivion
In rain or shine I'm waiting at the front line
I need it, I need it, like you would not believe it
And I've been dying to change
(I've been dying to change) my ways
‘cos I've been dry for five long days


At the weekend, baby, baby at the weekend
At the weekend, at the weekend
At the weekend, baby, baby at the weekend
At the weekend… ow, ow, ow, wow!

I wanna, I wanna
I wanna ride upon a five mile tide
Of surprise and oblivion
In rain or shine I'm waiting at the front line
I need it, I need it
Like you would not believe it
And I've been dying to change
(I've been dying to change) my ways
'cos I've been dry for five long…
