Hi everyone,
This was originally titled "It Feels Like Friday". I have done a couple of rewrites to it. This is the published version from my new book, "Dirt Roads And Guitars". Constructive comments, suggestions, crits and musical collaboration are welcome and appreciated. Best wishes!

IF YOU LIKE FRIDAY

Copyright 2016 by Wes Tibbets


ISBN 9781523481408

FIRST VERSE



The sun sets and the moon comes out

The hands go up and the beer goes down

Got a truck full of honey's, a pocket full of money

Nobody's thinking, everybody's drinking



CHORUS



It's Friday night and we're feeling alright

We got it going on, nobody's going home

It's Friday night and we're lighting it up

Howlin' at the moon in the back of our trucks

Put your hands up, put your hands up, put your hands up

If you like Friday



SECOND VERSE



Got our 15's bumping behind the seats

And our tailgates down in the summer heat

Campfire's going, we're singin' and drinkin'

Doing no wrong, just having some fun



CHORUS



It's Friday night and we're feeling alright

We got it going on, nobody's going home

It's Friday night and we're lighting it up

Howlin' at the moon in the back of our trucks

Put your hands up, put your hands up, put your hands up

If you like Friday



BRIDGE



No one cares if we stay here

All night long, drinking our beer



CHORUS



It's Friday night and we're feeling alright

We got it going on, nobody's going home

It's Friday night and we're lighting it up

Howlin' at the moon in the back of our trucks

Put your hands up, put your hands up, put your hands up



TAG



Yeah,

Put your hands up, Put your hands up, Put your hands up

If you like Friday

Wes,
Your getting expert at truck bro drinking songs LOL! there are some parts of the language I don't understand such as the '15's bumping" but that is my problem as I am not necessarily the target audience of such a song.

There is however a more major disconnection and it relates to the hook which is "FEELS like FRIDAY", yet is has been made abundantly clear it IS FRIDAY...

this for mine has a reasonably simple fix such as;
Now it feels like Friday
Good old Friday
great to have you back Friday
wish it was always Friday
my favourite time of the week, Friday etc.

PS it is sort of funny the song I came to put on the forum "Sitting With Me" starts the same way.... there is truly nothing new in song writing only how we write it

Hi Arty,
Thanks for weighing in. Interesting observation you made with the "It feels like Friday" aspect. I appreciate it and the kind words. Sorry I confused you with the "15's bumping". I was referring to "15" woofers" there. Thought it might be more appealing to the younger generation. Seems like every time a kid rolls by me in a car or pickup, they have that bass rattling every inch of their ride and mine too. Hope you've been doing well. Best wishes!

I like the "howlin' at the moon" line. In a live performance, that would have all sorts of possibilities!  Ott
