Nick Drake - Saturday Sun Lyrics

Saturday sun
Came early one morning
In a sky so clear and blue
Saturday sun
Came without warning
So no one knew what to do

Saturday sun
Brought people and faces
That didn't seem much
In their day
But when I remember
Those people and places
They were really too good
In their way
In their way
In their way
Saturday sun
Won't come and see me today

Think about stories
With reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain
And think about people
In their season and time
Returning again and again
And again
And again
But Saturday's sun
Has turned to Sunday's rain

So Sunday sat
In the Saturday sun
And wept for a day gone by

    Saturday sun came early one morning

    in a sky so clear and blue
    Saturday sun came without warning
    so no-one knew what to do

    Saturday sun brought people and faces
    that didn't seem much in their day
    but when I remembered those people and places
    they were really too good in their way
    in their way
    in their way

    Saturday sun won't come and see me today
    think about stories with reason and rhyme
    circling through your brain
    and think about people in their season and time
    returning again and again
    and again
    and again

    But Saturday sun has turned to Sunday's rain
    so Sunday sat in the Saturday sun
    and wept for a day gone by

  10. Pablo Ramon

    After xxxx years not having listened to this... It's absolutely sublime. And more so when one of my own dearest students, 17 y-o L.A., has chosen this track for one of his very first singing experiences at a recording studio. Hats off to Leo and his music teacher in Santa Fe.

    The One and only, Nick Drake.+Richard Thompson.+John Cale.

    The Ban Man

    Cale was on the 2nd album, not this one

  23. H.E Prado Villegas

    Nick Drake & The Bad Leaves

    G is for Grievous

    I discovered Nick Drake on spotify,after an album I liked played It recommended some of his work. Eventuslly when I listened to Nick Drake,in a recommendation list was Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. TL:DR-We Went Full Circle.

  24. Moira Were

    Zoltar Smith

    People without a flux compensator just don't understand.

    alison welch

    thewickedest80 it must be a bot

  30. Nalinho

    Saw this guy play last night. Meh. I prefer him on the Spiderman soundtrack.

    The Paradigm

    Nalinho you alright there, mate?

    Linda Jones

    The Paradigm ........the mind boggles.

  31. SongwoodTV

    Does anyone ever mentioned the incredible bass playing on this tune? It´s like a background choir to me.

    Bren Cronin

    SongwoodTV its a fucking all round classic.even the demos are great


    The bass is rarely anything less than incredible whenever Danny Thompson's the bass player.


    Yet another case of "I never noticed the bass"...

  32. NickToc

    Shoutout to the one idiot who disliked for the lols

  33. Chris Hmmm

    It's got a Nina Simone vibe

    Adrian Fielding

    And reminiscent of his mother's songs. If you don't know her look up Molly drake.

    hugh scott

    i never picked up on that but now i cant get that out of my ears.

  34. Nalinho

    Fucking yes

  35. Matthew Brourton

    nick plays piano on this ..also pink moon ..thats it


    I wish he played piano more often.

    Mark Mitten

    He plays piano on the home demo version of "Way To Blue."
    (Find the Island Records video version on youtube, with old photos and home videos of Nick as a kid.)

    David Chopin

    Time has told me


    It's Paul Harris on piano

    Sonia Leila Da Silva

    lymehausdj8 no, it is Nick Drake who plays the piano, it is written in the album
