“TEXAS SATURDAY NIGHT”
Words and Music by Don Seymour

Ridin’ to the dance hall on my big wheels,
Got my lady holdin’ me tight.
Got our boots and jeans and no frills,
It’s a Texas Saturday night.

Back on the streets that were made for paydays.
Back where the men take their fav’rite ladies.
Six days away from it, and now it’s here.
Over here my lady, let’s grab ourselves a beer.

I been countin’ down to the weekend.
I hope she’ll be givin’
Her love. If she will, well I might.
Sunday to Friday are not really my days,
I live for Saturday night, Saturday night.

You know that the bars are filled with townies.
They’re all here, they came to delight.
Ain’t no place for girl scouts or no brownies,
Cowboys live for Saturday night.

Back on the streets that were made for paydays.
Back where the men take their fav’rite ladies.
Six days I wait for it, and now it’s here.
Over here my lady, let’s do a shot and beer.

Gonna shine my boots for the evenin’
The boots that are seein’
Those brown eyes shinin’ so bright.
I count all my days, but one day’s my best day.
I live for Saturday night, Saturday night.

When I die, I’m gonna go to heaven,
Unless I die on a Saturday night.
Angels don’t tie no yellow ribbons.
If I don’t know wrong from right.

Back on the streets that were made for paydays.
Back where the men take their fav’rite ladies.
Six days I wait for it, and now it’s here.
Over here my lady, let’s have us one last beer.


So tonight we’ll hang up our denim
And dream we’re in heaven
At home far away from bright lights.
We count each day, but cowboys and ladies,
We live for Saturday night.

Saturday night,
Saturday night,
Live for Saturday night.
Live for Saturday night.
San Antonio nights.
San Antonio nights.
Live for Saturday night.
San Antonio nights.
Live for Saturday night.
Live for Saturday night.
San Antonio nights.
“LIVE! It’s Saturday Night!”
Live for Saturday night.
