Someday I'll Be Saturday Night

(D)Hey, man I'm alive I'm (G)takin' each day a night at a time
(D)Yes I,m down but somehow I'll get(A7sus) by(A7)
(G)Hey hey hey hey man, I'm going to(A) live my life
Like I(D) ain't got nothing but this (Bm)roll of the dice
I'm(A) feelin' like a Monday but (G)someday I'll be Saturday(D) night

(D)Hey, my name is Jim, where did I go wrong
My(F#m) life's a bargain basement, all the good shit's gone
I (G)just can't hold a job, where do I belong
I'm(D) sleeping in my car, my (A)dreams move(D) on

My(D)name is Billy Jean, my love was bought and sold
I'm(F#m) only sixteen, I feel a hundred years old
My (G)foster daddy went, took my innocence away
The(A) street life aint much better, but at least I get paid

And(Bm) Tuesday just might (G)go my way
It(D) can't get worse than yesterday
(F#m)Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind
But (Gbar)somehow I'll sur(E)vive

(D)Hey man I'm alive I'm(G) takin' each day a night at a time
(D)Yeah I'm down, but I know I'll get(Asus) by(A)
Hey hey hey(G) hey, man gotta(A) live my life
Like I(D) ain't got nothin' but this(Bm) roll of the dice
I'm(A) feelin' like a Monday, but (G)someday I'll be Saturday(D) night

Now (D)I can't say my name, and tell you where I am
I want to(F#m) roll myself away, don't know if I can
I(Gbar) wish that I could be in some other time and place
With(Abar) someone elses soul, someone elses face

Oh, (Bm)Tuesday just might(G) go my way
It (D)can't get worse than(Dsus)yesterday(D)
(F#m)Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind
But (Gbar)somehow I'll sur(E)vive

(D)Hey, man I'm alive I'm(G) takin' each day a night at a time
(D)Yeah I'm down, but I know I'll get(Asus) by(A)
(A)Hey hey hey (G)hey, man gotta(A) live my life
I'm gonna(D) pick up all the pieces and what's (Bm)left of my pride
I'm(A) feelin' like a Monday, but(G) someday I'll be Saturday(D) night

Saturday night Here we go

(D)Some day I'll be Saturday(G) night
I'll be (D)back on my feet, I'll be doin' al(G)right
It (D)may not be tomorrow baby, that's OK
I (G)ain't goin' down, gonna (A)find a way, hey hey hey

(D)Hey, man I'm alive I'm(G) takin' each day a night at a time
(D)Yeah I'm down, but I know I'll get(Asus) by(A)
(A)Hey hey hey (G)hey, man gotta(A) live my life
I'm gonna(D) pick up all the pieces and what's (Bm)left of my pride
I'm(A) feelin' like a Monday, but(G) someday I'll be Saturday(D) night
