Friday I'm in Love
The Cure Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday, I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love
Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Oh, Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday, I'm in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate

I don't care if Monday's black
Tuesday, Wednesday, heart attack
Thursday, never looking back
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday you can hold your head
Tuesday, Wednesday, stay in bed
Or Thursday watch the walls instead
It's Friday, I'm in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throw out your frown
And just smile at the sound
Sleek as a shriek, spinning 'round and 'round
Always take a big bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's Friday, I'm in love

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday, I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love
Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday, break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday, I'm in love

(Oh)
Do-do, do-do, do-do, do




Do-do, do-do, do-do, do
(Oh, oh, whoa, whoa)

Overall Meaning

The Cure's song "Friday I'm in Love" is a celebratory tune about the joy of Fridays and the excitement of being in love. The lyrics reject the monotony of weekdays and prioritize the weekend, but more importantly, it highlights the power of love in bringing happiness and inspiring spontaneity. The song repeats the phrase "It's Friday, I'm in love," as Robert Smith sings about the ability of love to lift the spirits and make the world a brighter place. The song is not only a declaration of love towards a person but also love for life and the simple pleasures that come with it.


The lyrics of the song also allude to the rejection of societal norms and the rat race of corporate life. The lines, "Monday you can fall apart, Tuesday, Wednesday, break my heart, oh Thursday doesn't even start" show how the days of the week can take a toll on people's mental health. Friday is the day to escape from the daily grind and live in the moment. The lyrics also mention dressing up and going out, exploring the world around us, and enjoying little moments like eating in the middle of the night. This song serves as a reminder to look for joy in the small pleasures in life, and that love is something to be celebrated and cherished.
