Following the musical theme this week, I’m dusting off an old favourite and returning it to previous glory. Disney’s animated TV show ‘The Weekenders’ aired in the early 2000s, and was a smart, fun, and emotionally educating cartoon for the generation that was lucky enough to catch it every Saturday morning. The story revolved around a quad of diverse friends and their weekend antics – no school hallways in these epispodes; it was all about making the most out of their free time together.
Everybody’s running and the world it gets so crazy,
When you work so hard there’s no time to be lazy,
The weekend comes I’m down with that,
Grab your ball, grab your bat,
Head to the beach, grab some rays,
Better hurry up just got two days,
Playing games, Hanging out, Rollercoaster, Theres no doubt,
Go to the mall, Lot of fun, PIZZA RUN!
It’s time for all of us to bring it on out,
Hey thats what the weekends all about,
Best buds, hanging strong, Best friends can do no wrong,
Just two days, when we roll, Video games I’ll beat your score,
Watch cartoons, on TV, Drink that frosty chuggafreeze,
That’s what we like to do, C’mon y’all, I’m talkin’ to you!
I’m a livin’ for the weekend,
I’m a livin’ for the weekend.
How excellent is that?! In case your’e not aware, I’m all about using your downtime wisely whether it’s the weekend, spring break, or just a lunch break. Make it all count! The best part of this upbeat and enthusiastic theme song is the opening lines. You work hard, so play hard! When your weekend zips by and you’ve done nothing, that’s exactly why – get excited, you’ve been waiting for this! Even if you don’t have your best friends at hand for the weekend, just get on out there. Make memories to remember on Monday.
