Saturday Suit

There is something about 70’s songs.  Maybe it’s the bubblegum pop and the saccharine renditions.  But it’s also all the refreshing things you remember as a child.  Saturday Suit, although was an original performance from Art Garfunkel, to me was best performed by Mama Cass.  It speaks towards a wish fulfillment and a craving for peaceful days.  Especially as we embark on a new work week, it is songs like these that make you alive as you conquer the office grind.

Saturday Suit – Cass Elliot (Album: The Road is no Place for a Lady, 1977)
Composer:  Jimmy Webb

All week long 
We've been looking at horizons 
It's hard on the brain
Sometimes I wonder 
Is it the car or the highway that rolls through the rain?
This day has no number
This day has no name
But it's time for the weekend all the same

Why don't you put on your Saturday suit
Let's fly me away
We could find ourselves a little cafe
Where the street people come to play
And let the wine and the sunshine
Blow our minds away
Saturday suit me fine...today

All day long we've been sitting on our islands 
And looking within
Sometimes I wonder 
If we will ever be happy again
I put on my makeup
And you shine your shoes
I know that it's Monday 
But I'm bored with the blues

Why don't you put on your Saturday suit
Let's fly me away
We could find ourselves a little cafe
Where the street people come to play
And let the wine and the sunshine
Blow our minds away
Saturday Suit me fine...today

Darlin', wont you Saturday Suit me fine...
Today
