Another Saturday Night (Live ’74)

(Written by Sam Cooke)

Another Saturday night, and I ain’t got nobody
I’ve got some money ‘cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I’m in an awful way

I got in town a month ago
I’ve seen a lot of girls since then
If I could meet ‘em, I could get ‘em
But as yet I haven’t met ‘em
That’s how I’m in the state I’m in

Another Saturday night, and I ain’t got nobody
I’ve got some money ‘cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I’m in an awful way

Another fella told me
He had a sister, who looked just fine
Instead of bein’ my deliverance
She had a strange resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein

Another Saturday night, and I ain’t got nobody
I’ve got some money ‘cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I’m in an awful way

It’s hard on a fella
When he don’t know his way around
If I don’t find me a honey
To help me spend my money
I’m gonna have to blow this town

Another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody
I’ve got some money cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I’m an awful way

I’m in an awful, ooh, I’m in an awful way
He’s in an awful way, I’m in an awful way
I’m in an awful way, he’s in an awful way
