Friday I'm In Love Lyrics

I don't care if Monday's blue

Tuesday's gray and Wednesday too

Thursday I don't care about you

It's Friday, I'm in love



Monday you can fall apart

Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart

Oh, Thursday doesn't even start

It's...

    It's about loving someone in the moment.

    i know it’s supposed to be a feel-good song written for a bet but
    its like he sees all these people and rejects them for these frivolous reasons, like the days of the week - monday isn’t really blue. tuesday and wednesday arent . . . gray too. but he rejects all these people because he only has eyes for this one girl, friday.
    and he likes the real her . . . he thinks she’s gorgeous even watching her “eat in the middle of the night.”
    so these other girls (these other days of the week) are perfectly fine, but he only has eyes for friday.

    I think about a guy working a job he hates. Friday is great. He gets paid and has 3 days to do want pleases him.

    It’s not about love. Love is used metaphorically to conjure the feelings we associate with Friday, the end of another hard week at work.

    I think it's about a guy who has multiple women, and the one he wants, he sees on Fridays. But, shes a FWB(friend with benefit) and doesn't want anything more.

    I think this song is about being able to love someone and hate them all the same. There are some days where you can forget about them but others where their the only thing on your mind. For The Cure that day is Friday. After all love and hate are interchangeable

    He's singing about how Monday -Thursday are weekdays and either he or she may have a bad day, but piss on the whole week by Friday because it's all about the 2 of them enjoying life.

    This is about a stripper who only performs on Fridays

    Okay, so when Robert Smith found out about the press reports saying that The Cure were always gloomy and depressing, and that they couldn't do a happy song if their life depended on it, he got annoyed. So he got the band together and wrote a ridiculously feel-good Friday song, which actually turned out to be one of their biggest hits. Friday I'm in love is a piss-take. He wrote the song and shoved it in the reporters faces without them even knowing it, just to see which clever few that actually understood The Cure could get the joke. And that is how the entire nation got the mickey taken out of them without a clue what was going on.

    My interpretation personally is he is in love with fridays because he gets to see his girl and fridays he gets to see her all dressed up to her eyes and hes in love with friday the week because he spend all his time with his girl thats my interpretation and the other weeks may have some pressure on him like days being grey and black or blue but when friday comes hes in love

    This song was made on a bet: that robert couldn't write yet another pop-y upbeat yet trite HIT.
    Take a look into the real history of the band - "Oo Oh that's groovey" featuring frank the milkman was the first of these types of dare/bet songs by the band.

    While there are some subtle poetic nods to the "Monday's child" fortune-telling nursery rhyme, the small allegories are entirely about the top-40 public/ record publishers /radio media personalities "eating up/dancing to" whatever a published band would throw at them: "just smiling at the sound [note: not the music, but the mere sounds]"
    "you can never get enough, enough of this Stuff [Stuff in british can mean bullsh*t/poppycock]".

    I think it's commenting on the societies acceptance, and often encouragement of womanising. Ever heard of the saying "I've got a girl for each day of the week"? I believe each "day" is referring to a different girl. Read over the lyrics now, you'll see :)

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I always thought this song was more about waiting until his very last change to tell her how he feels.

    I think this song is written about a girl named Friday. Just seems like to much of a beautiful song to be written about a day of the week, even if it is friday.
