A Wall Street Tribute to Katy Perry’s Song TGIF – Last Friday Night




Basic

Not long ago, I was on a road trip and it was late at night in the middle of nowhere, 200 miles from anywhere, or at the minimum any city whose name you’d recognize, and it was 2 AM in the morning on a Weekend. That song by Katy Perry kept coming on the radio. I guess people kept requesting it, you know the one: “Last Friday Night!”

Anyway for some reason this silly song got stuck in my head, you know how songs do that. If you don’t know the song, go to YouTube and watch the video so you understand what I am talking about.

So, I got to thinking about the whole idea of the song; “next Friday night, we are going to do it all again,” and then considered Billy Joel’s song “We Didn’t Start the Fire” and then I thought, maybe I should put some lyrics about Wall Street to the Katy Perry Song, who knows maybe I’ll do a viral video of it once I am completed. Below are some lyrics I came up with – see what you think of it?

Last Week’s Stock Market
