Funny Mindshare song parodies the Friday lunch

By AdNews | 31 August 2012

Keen for some light-hearted Friday listening? You're going to love Mindshare's house band Pat Hammond and the Exchanges.

For your listening pleasure, here is yet another light-hearted song in its suite of industry-focused tunes, with 'Friday I'm At Lunch'.

Known for adopting famous songs and replacing the lyrics relevant to the marcomms industry, the latest jig is no exception.  It's based on The Cure's 90's anthem 'Friday I'm In Love', and is certaintly not to be missed.

The members of the band are Pat Hammond, Michael Talbot, Ben Burrett and Phil Church.

I don’t care if Monday’s gross

Tuesday’s pre-times

Wednesday’s post

On Thursday the client gave me a roast

‘Cause on Friday, I’m at Lunch

Monday I often fall apart

Tuesday and Wednesday break my heart

Thursday doesn’t even start

It’s Friday, I’m at Lunch

Saturday’s loose

Sunday night I look for the noose

Friday I’m always on the juice

On Monday nothing ever clicks

So Tuesday and Wednesday I call in sick

Thursday search Facebook for chicks

Friday, I’m at lunch

Monday often turns out lame

Tuesday, Wednesday much the same

Thursday night I bring my game

It’s Friday, I’m at lunch

Things are going insane

And so to ease the pain

I’m gonna spend the afternoon at Longrain

In the office alone

Don’t you b*tch or moan

Just get Moondogg on the phone

Beers, shots and wines

Entries, main and sides

Someone’s on my mobile requesting MI’s

Always a last minute rush

Nothing matters that much

‘Cause it’s Friday, I’m at lunch
