    (Thank God it's) Friday, Friday, Friday, Friday

    Hey,
    Put a smile on your face,
    Things are coming your way,
    Out there somewhere tonight,
    (It's the right time and place).

    I saw you baby,
    For the very first time,
    Couldn't take my eyes off you,
    Girl you just had to be mine.

    You're the key I'm dreamin' of,
    For it just had to be you,
    Girl I know this time
    I'll make all my dreams come true.

    Hey,
    See the stars in his eyes,
    And that music in you,
    Tells you how you can find
    (Your way to paradise)

    Friday
    (Thank God it's) Friday
    Friday
    (Thank God it's) Friday, Friday, Friday, Friday

    Hey,
    Put a smile on your face,
    Things are coming your way,
    Out there somewhere tonight
    (It's the right time and place)

    Hey,
    See the stars in his eyes,
    Tells you how you can find love Writer/s: Clifton Davis

  • Jane from Austin, Txi remember the film and theme song
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaThe vocalists are Joanne Stone, Sue Glover, Stephanie DeSykes, Sunny Leslie, and Vicki Brown. The popularity of the song at the time helped make "Thank God It's Friday," a national catch phrase in the United States, though few remember either the film or the theme song.
