Cheers to the freakin' weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh let the Jameson sink in

Don't let the bastards get ya down
Turn it around with another round
There's a party at the bar
Everybody putcha glasses up and I drink to that (yeah yeah yeah)
I drink to that (yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah)

Life's too short to be sittin' round miserable
And people gon' talk whether you doing bad or good, yeah
Got a drink on my mind and my mind on my money, yeah yeah
Looking so bomb, gonna find me a honey
Got my Ray Bans on and I'm feelin' hella cool tonight, yeah
Everybody's vibin' so don't nobody start a fight, yeah

Cheers to the freakin' weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh, let the Jameson sink in
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Don't let the bastards get ya down
Turn it around with another round
There's a party at the bar
Everybody putcha glasses up and I drink to that (yeah yeah yeah)
I drink to that (yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah)

Bout to hop on the bar
Put it all on my card tonight, yeah
Might be mad in the morning
But you know we goin' hard tonight
It's getting coyote ugly up in here, no Tyra
It's only up from here, no downward spiral
Got my Ray Bans on and I'm feelin' hella cool tonight, yeah
Everybody's vibin' so don't nobody start a fight, yeah

Cheers to the freakin' weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh let the Jameson sink in
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Don't let the bastards get ya down
Turn it around with another round
There's a party at the bar
Everybody putcha glasses up and I drink to that (yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah)
I drink to that (yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah)

And I drink to that
I drink to that

(Cheers to the freakin' weekend
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Oh let the Jameson sink in)
I drink to that, yeah yeah
Don't let the bastards get ya down
Turn it around with another round
There's a party at the bar
Everybody putcha glasses up and I drink to that
I drink to that
