Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting

Elton John

VERSE 1:
 G
It's getting late have you seen my mates
 F
Ma tell me when the boys get here
 C
It's seven o'clock and I want to rock
 G
Want to get a belly full of beer
 G
My old man's drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
 F
And my old lady she don't care
 C
My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
 G
handful of grease in her hair
Dm7 ↓Gliss…
Ohhhhhhh

CHORUS:
 C
  Don't give us none of your aggravation
 Bb
We had it with your discipline
 F
 Saturday night's alright for fighting
 C
 Get a little action in
 C
 Get about as oiled as a diesel train
 Bb
 Gonna set this dance alight

`Cause Saturday night's the night I like

 Saturday night's alright

VERSE 2:
 G
Well they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
 F
I'm looking for a dolly who'll see me right
 C
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
 G
I may sink a little drink and shout out "She's with me!"
 G
couple of the sounds that I really like
 F
Are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
 C
I'm a juvenile product of the working class
 G
Whose best friend floats in the bottom of a glass
Dm7 ↓Gliss…
Ohhhhhhh

 C
  Don't give us none of your aggravation
