For The Weekend
Bachman-Turner Overdrive Lyrics


Get up early in the mornin'
Beat the clock, get out on the line
I'm part of the assembly
I'm just puttin' in time
There's only one thing in life
That helps me through
Just dreamin' of the weekends baby
And being with you
Just dreamin' of the weekends baby
And being with you

I'm gonna make it alright
From Monday mornin' to Friday night
I'm double shiftin' my time
Saving my money and waitin' in line
I'm gonna make it alright
From Monday mornin' to Friday night
I'm double shiftin' my time
Saving my money and waitin' in line

For The Weekend, I just can't wait
For The Weekend, I just can't wait

Woo

Get home late in the evenin'
I'm much too tired to move
Sick and tired of the late night people
I'm just not in the mood
There's only one thing in life
That helps me through
Dreamin' of the weekends baby
And being with you
Just dreamin' of the weekends baby
And being with you

I'm gonna make it alright
From Monday mornin' to Friday night
I'm double shiftin' my time
Saving my money and waitin' in line
I'm gonna make it alright
From Monday mornin' to Friday night
I'm double shiftin' my time
Saving my money and waitin' in line

For The Weekend, I just can't wait
For The Weekend, I just can't wait

great song that should've gotten more airplay and recognition, I always felt they should've had more of a successful career in the 80's and 90's.

One of BTO's best songs. What a riff!

Doobie1975

killer song, I didn't even know this song existed until around 2002 when I've seen the video to this song on VH1 Classic.

Scott August

Straight forward, unpretentious rock n roll. Excellent. Just plain old fashioned excellent!

robert c

One of the finest live rock acts of their time! Saw the 5 times , never failed to rock and entertain, bar none!

I saw this video on all things HBO between movies one Saturady afternoon back in '85.  I'm a long-time fan of BTO and Randy.  The video needed more of the guys, but as stated, the young girls and guys are "easier" to sell to MTV, who didn't play this best to my knowledge.  Anyway, great to see it after nearly 30 years!  Thanks dude!

MTV did, in fact play this, albeit in light rotation for a few weeks in the summer of 1984 when this was released.
