Artist: The Easybeats

Friday On My Mind – The Easybeats

The Easybeats were a rock and roll band from Australia. They formed in Sydney in late 1964 and split at the end of 1969. They are regarded as the greatest Australian pop band of the 1960s and were the first Australian rock and roll act to score an international pop hit with their 1966 single “Friday on My Mind”.

The band’s line-up exemplified the influence of post-war migration on Australian society. All five founding members were from families who had migrated to Australia from Europe: lead singer Stevie Wright and drummer Gordon Henry “Snowy” Fleet were from England; rhythm guitarist George Young was from Scotland; lead guitarist Harry Vanda and bassist Dick Diamonde were from the Netherlands.

Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me
Come on Tuesday I feel better
Even my old man looks good
Wednesday just won’t go
Thursday goes too slow
I’ve got Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl, she’s so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is outa’ sight to me

Tonight, I’ll paint it red
Tonight, I’ll lose my head
Tonight, I’ve got to get tonight
Monday I have Friday on my mind

Do the five day drag once more
No one, nothing else that bugs me
Now I’m working for the rich man
But I’ll change his tune one day

Tonight I’ll get mad
Tomorrow I’ll be glad
‘Cause I’ve got Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl she’s so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is outa’ sight to me

Tonight, I’ll paint it red
Tonight, I’ll lose my head
Tonight, I’ve got to get tonight
Monday I have Friday on my mind

Yeah

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl she’s so pretty
Gonna have fun in the city
Gonna have some fun
Be with my girl she’s so pretty
Gonna have some fun

Gonna have fun in the city
Gonna have some fun
Be with my girl she’s so pretty
In the city tonight
Gonna have fun in the city
