  • Saturday evening
    Saturday evening at a quarter to five
    I would see him arrive at the door
    Pushed you aside as he staggered inside

    Spilling alcohol over the floor
    A storm is abrewin' and it's sure to fall soon
    As I look at you from the shore
    So

    You better hold on
    'Cause it's Saturday night
    And your friends are all out
    And you feel like shit

    'Cause they never call you
    No they never call you
    No they never call
    Never call

    Never bloody ever
    Call me a name and I'll hit you again
    You're a slut, you're a bitch, you're a whore
    Talked to your daddy in that tone of voice

    There's a belt hanging over the door
    So you run to your room
    And you hide in your room
    Thinking how you could settle the score

    But
    Saturday night at a quarter to six
    And your friends are all out
    And you're live in the sticks

    Still they never call you
    No they never call you
    No they never call
    Never call

    Never bloody ever call
    Blue flashing light last Saturday night
    Brought the neighbours all out on the street
    They watched as the firemen carried you out

    And they stared at each other's feet
    Now everyone sees and yet nobody says
    How we're all just afraid of the heat
    But

    It's Saturday night
    And I'm lying alone in the bed that I made
    Disconnected the phone
    Still they never call you

    No they never call you
    No they never call
    Never call
    Never bloody ever call

    Never bloody ever
    Never
    Never do
    Never do
