lyrics

Dressed for the disco ready to kill
Gonna burst my buttons
And drink my fill tonight - alright
I've been sitting on the sidelines far too long
If I play my cards well
I can't go wrong tonight - alright
And I won't give a damn about the whole wide world
If a Northern boy meets a working girl
At the Saturday disco

Once in a while there's a God-sent chance
And I've just seen mine
Walk into this dance tonight - alright
Seems he's finally seen the light
And come out on the town
For a real good time tonight - alright
Well I know what I want and I won't think twice
Gonna get that fella if it takes all night
At the Saturday disco

Tonight... tonight
Let's get together at the end of the working week
It's gonna be... alright
If it takes all night
At the Saturday disco

I don't wanna hang around here and sulk
With you making eyes at the Incredible Hulk tonight - alright
You never care about the ones you hurt
And you're treating my feelings like a piece of dirt tonight - alright
But I know one day you're gonna change your mind
I'm gonna keep out of trouble and bide my time
At the Saturday Disco - yeah yeah

Tonight... tonight
Let's get together at the end of the working week
It's gonna be... alright
If it takes all night
At the Saturday disco

Hey pretty women, Mad Max is here
I've been working all week
Now I'm getting in gear tonight - alright
There's gonna be some laughs when I've had some beers
Cos I've got no worries
And I feel no fear tonight - alright
Well I ain't goodlooking but I wheel and deal
And I know how happy I can make you feel
At the Saturday disco

Tonight... tonight
Let's get together at the end of the working week
It's gonna be... alright
If it takes all night
At the Saturday disco
