The Easybeats - Friday On My Mind (1966)

The best act to come out of Australia in the ‘60s, this group was composed entirely of members whose families had emigrated from Europe after World War II. They had a string of hit singles from 1965 through 1966 and eventually got a record deal in America. Their farewell to Australia was rather scary and tragic, but after arriving to record in London, they put together their most well-known international hit.

This song, their most well-known international hit was voted the “Best Australian Song” of all time in 2001. It would later be covered by David Bowie, Peter Frampton, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, and many others.

Lyrics:

Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me
Comin’ Tuesday, I'll feel better
Even my old man looks good
Wednesday just don't go
Thursday goes too slow
I've got Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl; she's so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is out of sight to me
(Tonight)
I'll spend my bread
(Tonight)
I'll lose my head
(Tonight)
I've got to get tonight
Monday, I have Friday on my mind

Do the five day grind once more
No one- nothin’ else that bugs me
More than working for the rich man
Hey, I'll change that scene one day
Today I might be mad
Tomorrow I'll be glad
'Cause I've got Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl; she's so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is out of sight to me
(Tonight)
I'll spend my bread
(Tonight)
I'll lose my head
(Tonight)
I've got to get tonight
Monday, I have Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
I'll be with my girl; she's so pretty
I'm gonna have fun in the city
I'll be with my girl; she's so pretty
I'm gonna have fun in my city
I'll be with my girl…
