about

Dedicated to my late friend John Blackwell, this is a song about a couple of guys in a hotted-up car out cruising around on a Friday night, based on the real life activities of DJ and JB back in the mid 70's.

lyrics

Friday Night Cruisin’ (c) Darryl John 2014
Verse 1:
We always went out cruisin’ on a Friday night
We stayed out of trouble, we never started a fight.
Drivin’ around, listenin’ to the radio
We always tuned in to our favourite show

Verse 2:
Listenin’ to our music every chance that we could
The great songs were great, the rest were really good
Rock and roll was surely here to stay
Fast cars and music every night and day

Chorus:
Friday night cruisin’, Saturday night boozin’;
Sunday we were in by ten.
Back to work on Monday, no more fun hey
‘til Friday comes around again.

Verse 3:
With JB ridin’ shotgun, we would cruise the town,
Always on the lookout for action goin’ down.
Check out that hoon, he thinks his car is fast,
Movin’ alongside, this could be a blast.

Verse 4:
A thumbs down by JB, is quickly answered back,
Up to the next lights there’s no turning back.
That’s an eight he’s running, it sounds really cool,
Pedal to the metal, just take a look at that fool.

Chorus:
Friday night cruisin’, Saturday night boozin’;
Sunday we were in by ten.
Back to work on Monday, no more fun hey
‘til Friday comes around again.

Verse 5:
Now there’s the green light, better drop the clutch,
Tyres spinning wildly, I’ve given her too much.
But mine’s the fastest, I’m leaving him behind,
JB thinks it’s cool and I really don’t mind.

Verse 6:
Friday night’s were spent, cruisin’ down the strip,
Petrol heads were dragging in cars from the tip.
By Saturday night we were out on the booze
Livin’ our lives, just the way we choose.

Chorus:
Friday night cruisin’, Saturday night boozin’;
Sunday we were in by ten.
Back to work on Monday, no more fun hey
‘til Friday comes around again.

Final Chorus:
Friday night cruisin’, Saturday night boozin’;
Sunday we were in by ten.
Back to work on Monday, no more fun hey
‘til Friday comes around again.
‘til Friday comes around again.
‘til Friday comes around again.
