The Easybeats: Friday On My Mind

Monday morning feels so bad,
Ev'rybody seems to nag me
Coming tuesday I feel better,
Even my old man looks good,
Wednesday just don'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 out of sight to me,
Tonight... I spend my bread,
Tonight... I lose my head,
Tonight... I got to get tonight
Monday I have Friday on my mind.

Do the five day drag once more,
Know of nothing else that bugs me
More than working for the rich man,
Hey I'll change that scene one day,
Today I might be mad,
Tomorrow I'll be glad,
I've got Friday on my mind,

my blog about Rebecca Black's Friday: Internet song "Friday" goes viral
You're 13 years old. You decide to try your hand at a music video. You post it to YouTube and the next thing you know, it has been viewed 16 million times. Sounds great; another overnight sensation. Unfortunately, the critics and the public seem to be unanimous in calling this first time foray into the music field just about the most inane artistry ever. "Bad is the new good." The name "Rebecca Black" is now famous. Or is that infamous?
