  • As I was walkin' by
    Saw you standin' there with a smile
    Lookin' shy, you caught my eye
    Thought you'd want to hang for a while
    Well I'd like to be with you
    And you know it's Friday too
    I hope you can find the time
    This weekend to relax and unwind

    My mind's tired
    I've worked so hard all week
    Cashed my check
    I'm ready to go
    I promise you
    I'll show you such a good time

    Come on baby, let's get away
    Let's save our troubles for another day
    Come go with me, we've got it made
    Let me take you on an escapade (let's go)

    Escapade
    We'll have a good time
    Escapade
    Leave your worries behind
    Escapade
    Well you could be mine
    Escapade
    An escapade

    So don't hold back
    Just have a good time, yeah yeah
    We'll make the rules up as we go along
    And break them all if we're not havin' fun

    Come on baby let's get away
    Let's save our troubles for another day
    Come go with me we've got it made
    Let me take you on an escapade

    Come on baby let's get away
    Let's save our troubles for another day
    Come go with me we've got it made
    Let me take you on an escapade (let's go)

    Escapade
    We'll have a good time
    Escapade
    Leave your worries behind
    Escapade
    Well you could be mine
    Escapade
    An escapade

    (My mind's tired I've worked
    Worked so hard all week
    I just got paid, we've got it made
    Ready to go
    I promise you I'll show you
    Such a good time)

    Come on baby let's get away
    Let's save our troubles for another day
    Come go with me we've got it made
    Let me take you on an escapade

    Come on baby let's get away
    Let's save our troubles for another day
    Come go with me we've got it made
    Let me take you on an escapade (let's go)

    Come on baby let's get away
    Let's save our troubles for another day
    Come go with me we've got it made
    Let me take you on an escapade Writer/s: James Samuel Iii Harris, Janet Damita Jo Jackson, Terry Lewis

  • Samantha from New York, AkWooooh! I so love it....
    tight cream.
  • Linc from Beaumont, TxI think the video would have been better with a little more Vaudvillian true to the inspiration - I think they must be at Burning Man instead
  • Ben from Dallas, TxI always loved this song... it has a great beat & Janet sings it so well & so convincing. Even to this day, this song puts me in a good mood.
  • Candice from Vancouver, CanadaThis song rocks! Janet has a great voice, too.
