Boz Scaggs - Payday Lyrics

Hey you steppin on my head
Why you have to throw rocks at my bed
Must you shout or could you kindly keep it down
Do we really need it.. an Apocalypse right now

Oh man

Where's my sunshine sunshine was my friend
She was good to me right until the end
Where I left her yeah well its hard to tell
Got to call her just a soon as I get well

Come payday everybody gets strange
Talkin 'bout my Payday hey hey
Better get out of my way baby

I don't mind a job works no big deal
It's how they treat you and the way make you feel
I'll take my check you take your mood
And let's just say whatever man whatever gets you through

Cos its Payday
I'm blowin the blues away boy
Talkin about my Payday hey hey
Don't be waitin up for me now

Brothers.. sisters
Tonight we party tonight we're dancing
Hey we're talking the ultimate smash of a lifetime
This ones on me...

Sometimes it like a war in here facing down alone
But ever since I woke up I've felt it in my bones
Waiting for that hour is all that keeps me clear
There's gonna be some lightning strikin man when I get out of here

Cos it payday y'all better stay outta my way
Talking about some Payday hey hey hey
Man its all coming home

I said its Payday y'all

Gonna shake it on down tonight

Gonna do my dance tonight yeah

Talkin 'bout my Payday.. Payday hey hey

Come payday....
