Saturday Night

Seems like a dream now, it was so long ago
The moon burned so bright and time went so slow
He swore he loved me.  He gave me a ring
The bluebird was high on the wing

Whatever happened to Saturday night
Finding a sweetheart holding him tight?
He said, baby, oh baby, are you alright?
Whatever happened to Saturday night?

The years brought the freeway
It ran by his door
Now there’s boards on the windows
And dust on the floor
He passes his time at another girl’s side
And I spend time with my pride

What a tangled web we weave
Go ’round with circumstance
Someone show me how to tell the dancer
From the dance

Whatever happened to Saturday night
Choosing a friend losing a fight?
I said, tell me,  tell me, was I alright?
Whatever happened to Saturday night?

Saturday night
