Graham Parker Saturday Nite is Dead Lyrics

Last updated:

Intro D  Dsus4  D Dm D  (4 times)

A Bm A D
Everybody just looks ugly now information don't compute
A Bm
I draw a blank every time I think
E A
the football crowd is going to give me a boot

CHORUS
D A E
And Saturday night is dead Saturday night is dead
G
It don't matter what they say
G A
You've got to use your own head some day
D A E (intro chords)
Saturday night is dead Saturday night is dead Yeah it's dead

The ultraviolet light hurts me so it used to be my friend
I used to know a good place to go but now it's nothing like it was then

CHORUS (WORD VARIATION)
And Saturday night is dead Saturday night is dead
It don't matter what they say I'm going to the funeral Sunday
Saturday night is dead Saturday night is dead Yeah it's dead

BRIDGE
A G A G
It must have been murder it ain't no accident
A
Oh no it means nothing to me
G
The clock goes tick tick tick in my head
D
Saturday is dead Saturday is dead (solo over A and Bm)

A Bm A D
I look inside to find a place to hide but there ain't no place I know
A Bm A
It's just as well that I'm stupified it makes it easy
G E D
It makes it easy to deliver the fatal blow
(Intro chords)
Deliver deliver deliver

CHORUS (FIRST VERSION)

Saturday night is dead REPEAT AND END
