Eddie Cochran Lyrics

(La-la-la, la-la-la-la)
(La-la-la, la-la-la-la)

Friday night, everything's right for the weekend
Crazy clothes, anything goes on a weekend
John called Ann and Jim got Sue
I made a date with little ol' you
Off we went to make a big tent on the weekend

Boy, it's great, just a-stayin' out late on a weekend
Know a spot and like it a lot on a weekend
Took a road to Lookout Hill
The view up there is sure a thrill
What a night to hold you tight on a weekend

There we were just sittin' cool and cozy
Just about to steal a little kiss
The police with a flashlight bright and nosy
Sayin', "holdin' neck o'er there, what is all this?"

Car top down, just ridin' around on a weekend
Took a chance on crashin' a dance on a weekend
We were almost inside the place
When somebody slammed the door in my face
"Hey, you guys have gotta wear ties on a weekend!"

No harm done, just a-havin' some fun on a weekend
That was all, we had a big ball on the weekend

(La-la-la, la-la-la-la)
(La-la-la, la-la-la-la)

In my late teens I always played the Eddie Cochran Singles Album while getting ready to go out on a Friday and Saturday night - great for getting in the mood for a night out. Eddie was probably THE most under-rated talent of the rock n Roll era.

This guy has no limitations, just great.

Margaret McGill

The guy was brilliant. Very cool, and his songs make my life better.

Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry were among the very few outstanding early rock & rollers who regularly wrote their own hits. Amazing talents. Imagine the awesome body of work we would have been blessed with had two of them not been taken so young. Never to be forgotten.


this guy rights true rock


You have to have the gravel like raspy vocal for this song....this is flat out rock 'n' roll.....too slick and it loses the edge. One of Eddies best for me.....


Happy birthday Eddie. Still missed in 2020

Matthew Cooper
