Waiting on the Weekend - Lyrics

Stare at the ceiling in the living room
Another day of going through the motions
Empty chatter of the evening news
Yesterday's dinner heating on the stove, and
You must be joking

This can't be living
And if it is, is it really what I want?
Keep justifying it
Just what everybody does when they're young
You must be kidding
Everybody waits five days to have any fun
We're not really living right
All this waiting on the weekend to come

A corner office and a paycheck too
Might not be broke but you can still be broken
You think retirement will wait for you
65 years old, where do you think you're going?
Just keep on hoping, yeah

This can't be living
And if it is, is it really what I want?
Keep justifying it
Just what everybody does when they're young
You must be kidding
Everybody waits five days to have any fun
We're not really living right
All this waiting on the weekend to come

I drink the world of all its very best
I wanna soak up all it has to offer
Won't live in worry or in fear of death
Some things have higher value than the dollar
If this is it why do I even bother?

This can't be living
And if it is, is it really what I want?
Keep justifying it
Just what everybody does when they're young
You must be kidding
Everybody waits five days to have any fun
We're not really living right
All this waiting on the weekend to come
