Lyrics

Friday Night Lights

It's a crazy old town, and we've been around
In Odessa, Texas, what a beautiful sight
With the Lord up above, looking on down
Sees those Friday Night Lights

A newspaperman, came into our town
He talked with some folks, he was snooping around
He wrote up a book, that didn't sit right
Now we're fixin to fight

In Odessa, Texas, some try to hex us
That gets us upset
That newspaperman, can't understand
Our minds are all set
We're flippin our lids, cause he says our kids
Are growing up much too fast
Friday Night Football, it's still gonna last!

Now this is a story of a man who cried wolf
Said we were obsessed, but he offered no proof
The obsession was football, said we pressured our youth
But Lord that just ain't the truth

Chorus: Friday, Friday Night Lights
Our kids are the best
Saturday and Sunday too
That's when we rest
Monday and the rest of the week
We're still going strong
Friday Night Football
We can never go wrong

(Instrumental)

Our sons and our daughters
They take no orders
They've got their own voice
They've got the vision, to make a decision
Freedom of choice
We stand together
Like birds of a feather
That's how we play
Friday Night Football
It's the American Way

Chorus: Friday, Friday Night Lights
Our kids are the best
Saturday and Sunday too
That's when we rest
Monday and the rest of the week
We're still going strong
Friday Night Football
We can never go wrong

The folks have gone home, the stadium's closed
In Odessa, Texas, we're reaching new heights
We're proud of our kids, and the promise they hold
Under the Friday Night Lights
Under the Friday Night Lights
