  • I been livin for the weekend
    But no not anymore
    'Cause here comes that familiar feelin'
    That Friday's famous for
    Yeah I'm lookin' for some action
    And it's out there somewhere
    You can feel the electricity
    All in the evening air
    And it may just be more of the same
    But sometimes you wanna go where everyone knows your name
    So I guess I'll have to wait and see
    But I'm just gonna let something brand new happen to me

    And it's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    Bright lights and the big city
    It belongs to us tonight

    Now Friday's cool
    But there's somethin' about Saturday night
    You can't say what you won't do
    'Cause you know that you just might
    I'm alive this evening
    It was love at first sight
    This Saturday
    And every Saturday for the rest of my life
    And everyone's standin' in line
    Yeah lookin' good and lookin' for a real good time
    So I'll never have to wonder if
    I'll have someone to share all of this with

    And it's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    Bright lights and the big city
    It belongs to us tonight

    Yes I need it
    Everybody does
    Cocktails and conversation
    Music and making love

    And it's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    It's alright
    Bright lights and the big city
    It belongs to us tonight
    Bright lights, bright lights, bright lights
    And the big city
    It belongs to us tonight
