A letra:

Another Saturday Night and I ain't got nobody,
I have some money ‘cause I just got paid.
How I wish I had someone to talk to,
I'm in an awful way.

I blew in town I week ago, I ain't seen a lotta girls since then.
If I could find ‘em I could get ‘em, but as yet I haven't met ‘em,
That's why I'm in the shape I'm in Ohh

Another Saturday Night and I ain't got nobody,
I have some money ‘cause I just got paid.
How I wish I had someone to talk to,
I'm in an awful way.

Another fella told me, he had a sister that looked just fine.
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strong resemblance to a
Cat named Frankenstein Ohh

Another Saturday Night and I ain't got nobody,
I have some money ‘cause I just got paid.
How I wish I had someone to talk to,
I'm in an awful way.

It's hard for a fella, when he don't know his way around,
If I can't find me a honey to help me spend my money,
I'm gonna have to blow this town Ohh

Another Saturday Night and I ain't got nobody,
I have some money ‘cause I just got paid.
How I wish I had someone to talk to,
I'm in an awful way.
