about

Friday Night. Switch is on but no one’s home. That’s Tabatha. She’s been hounding me for weeks to get tickets to hear some Robert James guy sing. I’m pissed. I bent over backward getting these tickets. On Tuesday she breaks up with her boyfriend. Probably over something silly. They do it all the time. I don’t know Steve well enough to be in the middle of things and I’m grateful for it. Tabatha and I have been best buds for years. I’d like to think I know my friend pretty well. And it seems to me like one of them screwed up royally this time.

When I got home from work I was pumped. I didn’t care who was playing. My friends would be there. And it’s been a brutal week. It took me two hours to finally reach Tabatha. And guess what. She’s not going. Steve will be there and there’s no hope in hell that she ever wants to see his face again. She told him so. Big sigh. Big silence. I called a cab. I told her so. No go. And there’s definitely not a snowball’s chance in hell that I’m going to stay home on a Friday Night. Not this night, baby. I was faced with a dilemma. The extra ticket. I’ve just pulled up in front of the club. Well, look who’s here. It’s Steve with a very attractive girl standing next to him. Wondering if I can help him find an extra ticket for sale. So I sell my ticket to my friend Joe who in turn sells it to Steve. It’s Friday Night and I know better than to be in the middle of things. And I’m grateful for it ... xoRJ

lyrics

Switch is on but no one’s home
That train done left the station
Lamps were low all week long
Miss my tribe - I miss my nation

Need fast shoes … the night is waiting

Call you up - c’mon along
The funk you’re in is gonna twist you
Grab your keys, grab your coat
You’re missing out - I tell you, sister

Stay at home with your big black clouds - or -

Come and say hello to Friday night
Everyone you know loves Friday night
Grab it by the tail and hold on tight
Come and say hello to Friday night

I got the call - gang’s all in
Be a shame you show up missing
I’ll grab a cab … you’re on the way
Heads or tails - it’s getting late
Stay at home with your thunder clouds - or -

Come and say hello to Friday night
Everyone you know loves Friday night
Grab it by the tail and hold on tight
Come and say hello to Friday night

So come and say hello to Friday night
Everyone you know loves Friday night
Grab it by the tail, swing it around and hold on tight, tight, tight, tight
Come and say hello to Friday night

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, Friday night

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. And our upcoming seventh release "Piece Of Your Ghost" has been delayed. Expect it in mid to late February of 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release. Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
