Graham Parker The weekend's too short Lyrics

Last updated:

Intro: E then riff

E E Eadd9 E7 E6 E (use the pinkie)
Get your car out of the parking lot,
N.Y. city's getting much too hot
Way down Island there's a real cool breeze,

BRIDGE
D A E A Bm
baby get ready, the pressure's off, your body's hot, you got a good personality,
A E A Bm
my hand goes down your heart beat's up I can't go back to reality

CHORUS
E Eadd9 E Eadd9 E7 E6 E
The weekend's too short, ooh yeah
The weekend's too short, ooh yeah

Instrumental
Bless that bible, let the liquor run (the weekend's too short, ooh)
before they raise the drinking age to 21 (the weekend's too short, ooh)
Two days time it's going back to the grind (the weekend's too short, ooh)

BRIDGE
And the party's all over,
the time goes fast, our love will last, can't past the test of reality
my hand goes down your heart beat's up I said with some finality

REPEAT CHORUS then instrumental with solo

Get your car out of the parking lot, N.Y. city's getting much too hot
Way down Island there's a real cool breeze, baby get ready,
the pressure's off, your body's hot, you got a good personality,
my hand goes down your heart beat's up I can't go back to reality

REPEAT CHORUS (three times)
