A southern rock jam about how the promise of summer Fridays never lives up to the dream of getting to take time off.


Summer Fridays, I’m getting outta here at 1
Summer Fridays, gonna try to have some fun, but out
On the highway, there’s no way to get through
Cuz everyone else has summer Fridays too

Summer Fridays, can’t find a destination, cuz on
Summer Fridays, there’s no open reservations
Summer Fridays, it’s hard o get your kicks
When the only place open is a Motel 6

Summer Fridays sound so great but when they come around
The office never seems to get them right
They say you’re free to go if you’ve got all your business done
Then they dump a pile of work on Thursday night

Summer Fridays, there’s no way to win, so on
Summer Fridays I’m just gonna go in
It’s not a perk, it’s just a cruel trick
So on Monday morning I’ll just call in sick

Summer Fridays, I barely get to use ’em, so my
Summer Fridays are only an illusion
Summer Fridays are always out of reach
So I’ll log in to my meetings from the beach

Summer Fridays, don’t lie to me
Summer Fridays, they’re just a tease
Summer Fridays, Get me out of town
Summer Fridays, shut my laptop down
Summer Fridays, I’ve got to find
Summer Fridays, a way to get my time
Summer Fridays, ’cause I need my days
Summer Fridays, or a freakin’ raise
