Song Description

Laura loved to dance, and she loved for the boys to call her up and ask her out so they could go dancing and have some fun. But when they didn't call, she was bummed out because she wasn't allowed to go dancing alone. She got tired of that and started calling the boys and asking them out. For her, it was a "brand new Saturday night."

Story Behind the Song

I was just thinking how the tables have been turned -- or at least aren't the same as they were "back when." Girls/women don't wait on anything any more; they just go get what they want. Good for them.


Once upon a time or two several years ago
Laura stayed pretty close to the telephone
She was waitin' for a call 'cause her mama said she couldn't ask boys out
She never really understood what that was all about

Now Laura was a looker and the boys did call
They'd take her dancin' Saturday nights; everyone would have a ball
But when nobody called, she couldn't help but feelin' low
'Cause there she was all dressed up with no place to go

But now hear this: Laura's quit waitin' on the telephone
No way, José, she's stayin' home alone because...because...

(Yeah) It's a brand new Saturday night
And she's headin' out for the Club Delight
Dancin' and a prancin' 'til the mornin' light
It's a brand new, brand new Saturday night

Now Laura has a cell phone, and Laura never waits
She'll just call you up and ask you for a date
If you don't want to go, she'll call the next guy on her list
Maybe next week, if you're cool, she'll tell you what you missed

It's way too late to hold her to some old taboo
So if you're not lookin' for Laura, boy, she'll be lookin' for you because...because...




Yeah, it's a brand new, brand new Saturday night
