Veronica Sawyer Lyrics

Looking out my window
Nothing to do but to drive in circles
Well, I don't want to have to go home tonight

Up and down the boulevard
How did I survive in suburbia
When there's nothing to do
And they take away what I love to do the most, yeah

Friday night, you're not gonna get it
Saturday, you try to give me one more
Sunday morning, just waiting for the
afternoon so I can be a kid again

I head back to my backyard
I know life's rough but sometimes it's really hard
To do what I love to do the most, yeah

Now I'm stuck, I'm back in the loop again
I'm not gonna lose and I know I'm never gonna win
Sometimes life is just that way
We all say

Friday night, you're not gonna get it
Saturday, you try to give me one more
Sunday morning, just waiting for the
afternoon so I can be a kid again

Friday night, you're not gonna get it
Saturday, you try to give me one more
Sunday morning, just waiting for the
afternoon so I can be a kid again

And now the weekend comes and I try to get inside
But the guy at the door tells me that I'm denied

Friday night, you're not gonna get it
Saturday, you try to give me one more
Sunday morning, just waiting for the
afternoon so I can be a kid again

Friday night
Saturday
Sunday morning, just waiting for the
afternoon so I can be a kid again

Friday night
Saturday
Sunday morning, just waiting for the
afternoon so I can be a kid again

Friday night, you're not gonna get it
Saturday, you try to give me one more
Sunday morning, just waiting for the
afternoon so I can be a kid again

You try to give me one more
You try to give me one more

Friday night
Saturday
Sunday morning, just waiting for the
afternoon so I can be a kid again

Reel Big Fish ("RBF") is a ska punk band from Huntington Beach, California, United States who broke into the mainstream in the mid to late 1990s, formed in 1992.

Their debut album, "Everything Sucks" (1995), was an underground hit and led to a deal with Mojo Records (see also Mojo), an indie label. "Turn the Radio Off" (1996) established the band in the underground music scene, and they began touring throughout the USA. After the single "Sell Out" began breaking into the mainstream, including MTV, the album made an appearance on the charts. The ska revival was short-lived, however, and "Why Do They Rock So Hard?" (1998) did not lead the group to the mainstream.

Reel Big Fish released "Cheer Up" (2002) which began a movement into harder rock and pop sounds, with much less ska than the previous albums. The song "Where Have You Been?" was aimed at a wider audience, trying to drop the less popular ska sound, but was met with little mainstream success, despite the video. Their second most recent studio album was "We're Not Happy Until You're Not Happy" (2005).

They recently released "Our Live Album is Better Than Your Live Album" (2006) which includes 2 discs worth or their own tunes and a few covers of popular songs along with a DVD. They have worked on the soundtrack to BASEketball, which included a cover of A-Ha's Take On Me.

In 2006, they split from Jive records, who produced a "Best of" album against the will of the band, who could not prevent the release. The band has made a campaign to try and stop people buying the album.

Their latest album, "Monkeys For Nothing and the Chimps For Free" (2007) includes some songs that were previously recorded and released on other albums.

In 2009, they released "Fame, Fortune, and Fornication" an album composed of covers of older songs, including "Won't Back Down" by Tom Petty, and "Nothin' But a Good Time" by Poison.
