Lyrics

(Yeah)
(A-A-A-A-A-ARK)
Yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah
Yeah-eah-eah, yeah-eah-eah, yeah-eah-eah
Yeah, yeah-yeah

7 AM, waking up in the morning
Gotta be fresh, gotta go downstairs
Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal (cereal)
Seein' everything, the time is goin' (tickin' on and on)
Tickin' on and on, everybody's rushin'
Gotta get down to the bus stop
Gotta catch my bus, I see my friends (my friends)

Kickin' in the front seat
Sittin' in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up (gotta make my mind up)
Which seat can I take?

It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend

Partyin', partyin' (yeah)
Partyin', partyin' (yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin' forward to the weekend

7:45, we're drivin' on the highway (7:45)
Cruisin' so fast, I want time to fly
Fun, fun, think about fun
You know what it is

I got this, you got this (I got this)
My friend is by my right
I got this, you got this
Now you know it

Kickin' in the front seat
Sittin' in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up (gotta make my mind up)
Which seat can I take?

It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend

Partyin', partyin' (yeah)
Partyin', partyin' (yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin' forward to the weekend

Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday
Today it is Friday, Friday (partyin')
We-we-we so excited
We so excited
We gonna have a ball today

Tomorrow is Saturday
And Sunday comes afterwards
I don't want this weekend to end
R-B, Rebecca Black

So chillin' in the front seat (in the front seat)
In the back seat (in the back seat)
I'm drivin', cruisin' (yeah, yeah)
Fast lanes, switchin' lanes

Wit' a car up on my side (woo!)
(C'mon) Passin' by is a school bus in front of me
Makes tick tock, tick tock, wanna scream
Check my time, it's Friday, it's a weekend
We gonna have fun, c'mon, c'mon, y'all

It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend

Partyin', partyin' (yeah)
Partyin', partyin' (yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin' forward to the weekend

It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend

Partyin', partyin' (yeah)
Partyin', partyin' (yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin' forward to the weekend

Why It Sucks

  1. Rebecca's voice is extremely irritating.
  2. Annoying lyrics.
  3. On the topic of that, the lyric "Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday. Today it Friday, Friday", is laughable.
  4. Embarrassing use of Auto-Tune.
  5. The beat of the song sounds like stock electronic music.
  6. Patrice Wilson's rapping is stupid.
  7. The music video is annoying.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The song is somewhat catchy.

Reception

"Friday" received extremely negative reviews from critics, for its songwriting, instrumentation, Black's singing voice, and the video choreography and it's considered one of the worst songs of all time. Lyndsey Parker of Yahoo! Music asked if it could be "the best song ever". On March 29, 2011, it surpassed Justin Bieber's "Baby" as the most liked YouTube video, with 1.17 million likes, and once had over 3 million "dislikes", accounting for 88% of the total ratings of the video. The video was later removed, although it has since been officially re-uploaded.
