Payday In The Village Lyrics

Payday In The Village by Eddie Floyd  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Payday In The Village Now maria, she is a teller
Down at the savings and loan
Most of the days
She finds different ways
To kill time while she sits alone
But it's tuesday and the fifteenth
Tonight is the night of the bash
The workers of town
Plow the bank doors down
To get all their paychecks cashed
It's payday in the village
The house band is a playing
Don't plan for tomorrow
'cuz everybody's staying
(chorus)
Overnight at the pirate's patch
You won't believe the buzz you'll catch
It don't come through drink
It don't come through smoke
It comes through the joy of the village folk
Now alonzo, he is a foreman
Up at the ferguson plant
From eight until four
He will shell out the chores
His laborers sulk 'cuz they can't
But it's mid-month and a tuesday
Tonight at the patch they'll be found
Celebrated and vindicated
'cuz alonzo will pick up their rounds
Devil trumpets blowing
Angel choirs singing
Don't call on the telephone
'cuz we won't hear the ringing
(chorus)
Now alonzo and maria
Me about half past nine
He makes a deal to pick up the meal
If she will just pick up the wine
There's a big line at the nightclub
It winds down the neighborhood block
The manager thinks
And he hopes they will drink
'cuz he's kept twice the beer in stock
(chorus)
