Lefty Frizzell: Shine Shave & Shower

don’t matter what night of week it is
when my baby’s gonna show me around
but saturday’s best of all
cause that’s the night when i’m gonna
Shine shave and shower

Oh… it’s saturday
yes… it’s saturday
gonna shine shave and shower and brush my teeth
go out and dance and forget my grief
make all the nightclubs in this town
call my sweet baby’s gonna show me around

we’ll go here and there and everywhere
where we go I just don’t care
we’ll do the town up and we’ll do it right
because tonight is saturday night

who cares if talk gets around
just cause I’m sly and not so meek
sat don’t come but once a week

gonna shine shave and shower and brush my teeth
go out and dance and forget my grief
make all the nightclubs in this town
call my sweet baby’s gonna show me around

gonna shine shave and shower and brush my teeth
go out dancin’ and forget my grief
make all the nightclubs in this town
call my sweet baby’s gonna show me around

yea we’ll go here and there and everywhere
where we go I just don’t care
we’ll do the town up and we’ll do it right
because tonight is saturday night

daylight you know it will catch me going strong
one only lives one single life
and I don’t have a nagging wife

gonna shine shave and shower and brush my teeth
go out and dance and forget my grief
make all the nightclubs in this town
call my sweet baby’s gonna show me around

gonna shine shave and shower and shampoo
and go out and dance the whole night through
I’ll swing it left and I’ll swing it right
because tonight is saturday night
