Nights And Weekends

Nights and Weekends
Pigfarmer Jr

I stick out my thumb
Only eight miles from town
It's so cold early this morning and
My old car broke down

I've got a little girl
Supposed to be there by ten
I only get to see her a few nights
And every other weekend

The judge said I'm no good
And my visits must be supervised
But I'm doing the best I can
I hope that I'm still getting by

Don't you know
Can't you see
I love my little girl
She's the best of me

I hope to see a car
Popping over the hill
I don't have time enough to walk
But if I have to I will

The judge said I'm no good
And my visits must be supervised
But I'm doing the best I can
I hope that I'm still getting by

Don't you know
Can't you see
I love my little girl
She's the best of me
I released my first album on January 26th, 2018.

"Nights and Weekends" - Third Cat

I'm working for the government
there every morning at nine
don't want to be noticed
So I'm doing my job just fine

but on nights and weekends
I'm plotting with my friends

to burn this mother down
to tear apart this clown
to burn this mother down
to tear apart this clown

...

as we destroy where we come from
you see naked we become.

I'm working nights and weekends trying to make ends meet
I got a wife and kids and nothin’ to eat
If I get sick, well I'm gonna die
Can't afford to get better 'cause the fee's too high

If I had the strength I might put up a fight
But I’m so dog tired when I get home at night
I can’t take a sick day ‘cause I cast the wrong vote
And now the government says I need a doctor’s note

Cast the wrong vote and they turned back the page
And they clawed back the increase to the minimum wage
And the fat cats are laughin’ because life is sweet
While I work nights and weekends trying to make ends meet

Well the doctor says I need to stay at home
But the boss at work won't leave me alone
Production's high because the sales are fine
And they're gonna speed up the assembly line

The money rolls in for the man upstairs
And the suits downtown don't even care
But out on the line we're hurtin' bad
And it's time that some of that money was had

Cast the wrong vote and they turned back the page
And they clawed back the increase to the minimum wage
And the fat cats are laughin’ because life is sweet
While I work nights and weekends trying to make ends meet

Nights and Weekends
by Berkeley Social Scene

There’s no rest for the wicked
So we better get to work
The sooner we get started
The less we’ll be broken hearted

We’ve got nights and weekends
To set things right
We’ve got nights and weekends
To set things right

We’ve made some mistakes
But we’re turning things around
Praying for forgiveness
Getting back down to business

We’ve got nights and weekends
To set things right
We’ve got nights and weekends
To set things right

If you’re looking for salvation
You don’t have to go far
Get down on your knees
Wherever you are

There’s no rest for the wicked
At least none we have found
Keep your ears to the ground
Keep your ears to the ground

You’ve got nights and weekends
To set things right
You’ve got nights and weekends
To set things right

You’ve got nights and weekends
To set things right
You’ve got nights and weekends
To set things right

Nights And Weekends - Paco del Stinko

A lot of people get to freakin', if you tell them that they can't have a weekend
But I gotta tell ya that I like it this way, sleep in a bit late and still have a day
And everyone's around on Saturday and Sunday, I got a Wednesday a Friday and just who says it's the dumb way

Nights and weekends are just for me (They go together) - Almost entire exclusivity

Weekends can be had at a half, but you gotta go early to sneak in a laugh
So hey man just go and get right on in your car, (Go man go!) go man go man go commute, and I'll dance the Poot (Poot...Poot)

Nights and weekends are just for me (They go together) - Almost in total entireity (Dance the Poot)

I get up at nine - Go to work for three
If I get out out on time it's eleven thirty
I talk to the nuts - And sometimes we fight (Yeah!)
But just because you're crazy don't make it alright

Nights and weekends is what I work - Hitch up my britches and button my shirt

Sometimes there's tears - But every now and then
I'll bump into rare great moments of Zen (Oh yeah)
No two days the same - No two nights alike (Alright!)
You might like the ology, but not the psych

Nights and weekends is what I work - With a house full of crazy and a mouthful of dirt
Bringin' the stink since 2006.
