Last Friday Night
Katy Perry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

There's a stranger in my bed
There's a pounding in my head
Glitter all over the room
Pink flamingos in the pool
I smell like a minibar
DJ's passed out in the yard
Barbies on the barbecue
This a hickey or a bruise?

Pictures of last night
Ended up online
I'm screwed
Oh well
It's a blacked out blur
But I'm pretty sure it ruled
Damn

Last Friday night
Yeah, we danced on tabletops
And we took too many shots
Think we kissed, but I forgot

Last Friday night
Yeah, we maxed our credit cards
And got kicked out of the bar
So we hit the boulevard

Last Friday night
We went streaking in the park
Skinny dipping in the dark
Then had a ménage à trois
Last Friday night
Yeah, I think we broke the law
Always say we're gonna stop-op
Oh whoa

This Friday night
Do it all again
This Friday night
Do it all again

Trying to connect the dots
Don't know what to tell my boss
Think the city towed my car
Chandelier is on the floor
Ripped my favorite party dress
Warrant's out for my arrest
Think I need a ginger ale
That was such an epic fail

Pictures of last night
Ended up online
I'm screwed
Oh well
It's a blacked out blur
But I'm pretty sure it ruled
Damn

Last Friday night
Yeah, we danced on table tops
And we took too many shots
Think we kissed, but I forgot

Last Friday night
Yeah, we maxed our credits card
And got kicked out of the bar
So we hit the boulevards

Last Friday night
We went streaking in the park
Skinny dipping in the dark
Then had a ménage à trois
Last Friday night
Yeah, I think we broke the law
Always say we're gonna stop-op
Oh whoa

This Friday night
Do it all again (do it all again)
This Friday night
Do it all again (do it all again)
This Friday night

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" describe a wild night of partying that the singer can barely remember. They wake up with a stranger in their bed and a pounding headache, trying to connect the dots of the previous evening's events. There are various unexpected occurrences such as the pink flamingos in the pool and barbies on the barbecue, but what stands out the most is the singer's misadventures during the night that include maxing out credit cards, dancing on tabletops, getting kicked out of a bar, streaking in the park, skinny dipping in the dark, and having a ménage à trois. Despite not being able to recall most of the night, the singer is sure that it was a great time.


The lyrics of the song can be understood as a commentary on the excesses of youth and the culture of casual sex and drinking that many engage in without remorse. The singer's actions in the song are depicted as fun and exciting, but at the same time, there is a sense that the lifestyle is not sustainable, and there may be consequences to their actions.

I'm trying to remember the events from last night and don't know how to explain it to my boss. It seems like the city towed my car and the chandelier is broken on the floor. I also ruined my favorite party dress, and there is a warrant out for my arrest. I need a ginger ale to calm my nerves, and everything was a disaster.


T.G.I.F.
Thank Goodness It's Friday!
