It's getting late, have you seen my mates
   |Fadd9                    |     
Ma, tell me when the boys get here
    |C              |             
It's 7 o'clock and I want to rock
       |G                  |      
I wanna get a belly full of beer

My old man's drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
And my old lady, she don't care
My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
And a handful of grease in her hair

|D     |D     |
           Yeah!
[chorus]

|C                            |             
    Don't give us none of your aggravation

We've had it with your discipline

 Saturday night's alright for fighting

 Get a little action in

 |C                      |
I get about as oiled as a diesel train
     |Bb            |      
Gonna set the dance alight
     |F                   |
'Cuz, Saturday night's the night I like
|C                 |(C)   (D)(Eb) (F)|G  (GF#F)|Eb  Bb Bb|C     |     |
 Saturday night's alright, alright, alright,    oooh...   oooh

Well, they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
And I'm looking for a dolly who will see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
And sink a little drink and shout, "She's with me."

A couple of sounds that I really like
Are the sound of a switchblade and a motor bike
I'm a juvenile product of the working class
Who's best friend floats in the bottom of a glass

Don't give us none of your aggravation
We've had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
To get a little action in

I get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright, alright, alright, oooh...
