Recorded in 1969 by a semi-one hit wonder band, this song is about a love affair that only exists on the weekends. It's hot, passionate and loving, but when Sunday night/Monday morning rolls around the guy goes away. For most of the song the girl is almost begging him to stay and wishing and hoping they can be together, but then finally giving him an ultimatum towards the end of the song which goes: "We gotta let this feeling grow/Or Let it end/You say you care/Well if you do/Don't ever go/I'm begging you..." (thanks, M. J - Silver Spring, MD)
