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

CHORUS:
[C] Don't give us none of your aggravation
We [Bb]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 [F]Saturday night's the night I like
[C]Saturday night's alright
[C/E]Al - [C/F]right [C/F#]al - ri[G]ght    [G/F-E]
[Cm7/Eb]Oooooo    [Dm7+4]oo-oo  [C]ooh

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

CHORUS:
[C] Don't give us none of your aggravation
We [Bb]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 [F]Saturday night's the night I like
[C]Saturday night's alright
