    "Work For The Weekend" Lyrics

    Lilac Time

    It was once before a time called now
    When we lazed the weeks away
    With a work of art and a pint of beer
    Was all there was to say
    For we made love in the afternoons
    On the mattresses of youth
    And I took all the rope that they gave
    And that became my noose

    Now I must wait for the weekend
    I must wait to have you

    When the streets were paved with poems
    And a salary of song
    When we never thought we'd have to work
    Or anything could go wrong
    Because there'd always be the Old King Cole
    The sovereign of our loving
    But the King was cut as was our luck
    And now the week is working

    Now the moral of this story is
    Without them you have fun
    Oh I thought the wine and roses years
    Had only just begun
    But in their world life's to short for love
    Money gives them pleasure
    And without God they have marshalled time
    Into but work or leisure

    Now I must wait for the weekend
    I must wait to have you
