New Single!: "It's Not Such A Wild Weekend"

NRBQ had a great song a couple of decades back called "It's A Wild Weekend", so I thought it would be funny to write an answer song about someone having a boring weekend.  Musicwise, the weird bit is a tape recorder that didn't seem to be working (it gave a great screech), but I managed to get it to work.  Fortunately, I got the screech recorded as well.  Lyrics are below:

Friday night, and I just got off work.
I'm looking to have some fun.
But I just moved to this town,
and I don't really know anyone.
I don't want to hang out with coworkers.
I already see enough of them.
I just want to have a good time.
I sure do wish that I had a friend.

It's not such a wild weekend.

Saturday, and I'm listening to NRBQ.
I have no invitation to an afternoon BBQ.
I could go out to a bar tonight,
but I think I'll stay home and not get into a fight.
At least the cashier at the store talked to me;
that's about as good as I'll find for company.
I'm so lonely I may go to church it seems.
At least I'll have some buddies tonight in my dreams.

Sunday, and sleeping in is no sin.
I should volunteer at a soup kitchen,
so next weekend I won't want to scream
when the boredom gets too extreme.
Got to find something to fill the abyss of the empty hours.
Do some reading and maybe take a walk and smell some flowers.
I heart Mondays because at least then I have something to do.
I can't wait to see this weekend through.

For more Wred Fright music, listen to the Yeast? 7"!
