lyrics

On Saturday morn
In the latest cafe
Without Ben she’s alone
Jen’s order the same
A low-fat latte
Sipped on her own
Her eyes, they blink back the tears
As she flicks her way
Through photos on her phone

For Saturday lunch
In a trendy hotel
Ben sits with the guys
Orders the same
Boutique ales
No words otherwise
All day he’s been so remote
His eyes on his phone
No effort to disguise

On Saturday Oh, Saturday Saturday

By Saturday evening
At the coolest scene
Jen’s out with the girls
Passing up on the same
Top-shelf cocktails
Already in a whirl
Dancefloor, she prays she won’t see
Her smooth-tongued heartbreaker
With product in his curls

Jennifer and Benjamin
Jenny and Benny
Jen and Ben

Late Saturday night
Back at her place
She gives up romance
Ends up the same
With lemon, lime and bitters
Jens final dance
Stopped dead by the doorbell
With a single red rose
Ben begs for one last chance
