Sir Charles Jones - "Friday"

There's something about hearing this song on a Friday - makes you want to go out and get your groove on!  Sir Charles Jones says this song is dedicated to all of us who work 9 to 5 - and you know how Friday feels!  You're going to like this easy going song by Sir Charles Jones.  It makes you feel good and also makes you want to get out and party.  His music is one of the reasons I love southern soul so much.  Note that he mentions doing the electric slide to Johnnie Taylor's "Slide On" and asks the dee jay to play "Motel Lover" by Marvin Sease.  Here are the first and last verses of this great song.

This one is dedicated for all the workers that work 9 to 5
Do you want to party
Hey, it’s Friday, let’s party tonight
It’s Friday, and I’m gonna party and get my groove on
It’s Friday, and I’m gonna party till the break of dawn

I did my work this week
And baby I just got paid
Wanna go buy me a fresh pair of gators
With some of this money that I made
Mel Waiters on the radio
Singing about the whiskey
I think I’ll go by the store
To get me a bottle so I can be ready
To get my groove on the dance floor

Mr. Dee Jay, can you play some Marvin Sease
Can you play “Motel Lover”
So I can ask this lady to please take me
I’ve been at work all week and I deserve
To come out and have a good time
I’ve been spending my money on everybody else
Tonight I’m gonna to spend every dime
Cause it’s Friday!
It's Friday and I'm gonna party and get my groove on!
