  • There's a stranger in my bed
    There's a pounding in my head
    Glitter all over the room
    Pink flamingos in the pool
    I smell like a minibar
    DJ's passed out in the yard
    Barbies on the barbecue
    This a hickey or a bruise?

    Pictures of last night
    Ended up online
    I'm screwed
    Oh well
    It's a blacked out blur
    But I'm pretty sure it ruled
    Damn

    Last Friday night
    Yeah, we danced on tabletops
    And we took too many shots
    Think we kissed, but I forgot

    Last Friday night
    Yeah, we maxed our credit cards
    And got kicked out of the bar
    So we hit the boulevard

    Last Friday night
    We went streaking in the park
    Skinny dipping in the dark
    Then had a ménage à trois
    Last Friday night
    Yeah, I think we broke the law
    Always say we're gonna stop-op
    Oh whoa

    This Friday night
    Do it all again
    This Friday night
    Do it all again

    Trying to connect the dots
    Don't know what to tell my boss
    Think the city towed my car
    Chandelier is on the floor
    Ripped my favorite party dress
    Warrant's out for my arrest
    Think I need a ginger ale
    That was such an epic fail

  • Piper from San Franciscotaylor swift does a better version, Katy is played out after having a baby, she may come back in time, maybe in her 40's, but to each their own, you make the bed you eat in, I did like Orlando bloom in LOTR trilogy, so she does have a taste for elves
  • Camille from Toronto, OhEven tho I'm in my 50s, I think this is an entertaining video; the song is very catchy with creative lyrics. I love the cameo appearances in the video of stars from the 80s. I believe the "knight in shining armor rescues the damsel in distress" part of the video is a bit of poking fun at Taylor Swift's song/video called "Love Story". I wasn't surprised to find out about the SNL connection, because when I heard the tune on the radio, it immediately made me think of SNL. The video shows Kenny G playing the sax, not sure why he didn't play the part on the true recording of the song. No matter, the sax solo makes the song; it takes it to that next level from what might have been a fun song to something exceptional. The chants of "TGIF*TGIF" are just icing on the cake.
  • Megan from Stevenson, Al"It's a blacked-out blur, but I'm pretty sure it ruled! Damn! Last Friday Night!" Awesome! lol:)
