|G |

It's getting late, have you seen my mates

|Fadd9 |

Ma, tell me when the boys get here

|C |

It's 7 o'clock and I want to rock

|G |

I wanna get a belly full of beer

 

My old man's drunker than a barrel full of monkeys

And my old lady, she don't care

My sister looks cute in her braces and boots

And a handful of grease in her hair

 

|D |D |

Yeah!

[chorus]

 

|C |

Don't give us none of your aggravation

|Bb | Eb/Bb Bb Eb/Bb Bb

We've had it with your discipline

|F |

Saturday night's alright for fighting

|C |C F/C C F/C C|

Get a little action in

 

|C |

I get about as oiled as a diesel train

|Bb |

Gonna set the dance alight

|F |

'Cuz, Saturday night's the night I like

|C |(C) (D)(Eb) (F)|G (GF#F)|Eb Bb Bb|C | |

Saturday night's alright, alright, alright, oooh... oooh

 

|G | F Fsus4|G |G |

 

Well, they're packed pretty tight in here tonight

And I'm looking for a dolly who will see me right

I may use a little muscle to get what I need

And sink a little drink and shout, "She's with me."

 

A couple of sounds that I really like

Are the sound of a switchblade and a motor bike

I'm a juvenile product of the working class

Who's best friend floats in the bottom of a glass

 

Don't give us none of your aggravation

We've had it with your discipline

Saturday night's alright for fighting

To get a little action in

 

I get about as oiled as a diesel train

Gonna set this dance alight

Saturday night's the night I like

Saturday night's alright, alright, alright, oooh...
