The Weekend's Too Short

This song is by Graham Parker & The Shot and appears on the album Steady Nerves (1985).

Get your car out of the parking lot,
New York City's getting much too hot
Way down island there's a real cool breeze,

Baby get ready, the pressure's off, your body's hot, you got a good personality,
My hand goes down your heart beat's up I can't go back to reality

The weekend's too short, ooh yeah
The weekend's too short, ooh yeah

Bless that bible, let the liquor run (the weekend's too short, ooh)
Before they raise the drinking age to 21 (the weekend's too short, ooh)
Two days time it's going back to the grind (the weekend's too short, ooh)

And the party's all over,
The time goes fast, our love will last, can't past the test of reality
My hand goes down your heart beat's up I said with some finality

The weekend's too short, ooh yeah
The weekend's too short, ooh yeah

Get your car out of the parking lot,
N.Y. City's getting much too hot
Way down island there's a real cool breeze, baby get ready,
The pressure's off, your body's hot, you got a good personality,
My hand goes down your heart beat's up I can't go back to reality

The weekend's too short, ooh yeah
The weekend's too short, ooh yeah

The weekend's too short, ooh yeah
The weekend's too short, ooh yeah

The weekend's too short, ooh yeah
The weekend's too short, ooh yeah
