Saturday Morning
And who's gonna play with me?
Six in the morning, baby
I got a long, long day ahead of me

The parents are sleeping soundly
The neighbors are dead as wood
I'm getting up and coming over
We gotta rock the neighborhood

Nothing's ever gonna happen 'round here
If we don't make it happen
Sleep away the day if you want to
But I got something that I gotta do

It's Saturday Morning
And this ain't the place for me
I'm giving you warning, baby
We got a whole big, fat, world to see

Nothing's ever gonna happen 'round here
If we don't make it happen
Sleep away the day if you want to
But I got something that I gotta do

It's Saturday Morning
And who's gonna play with me?
Six in the morning, baby
I got a long, long day ahead of me

Saturday morning

This, like many Eels tunes, is a quirky mixture of melody, musical style, witty lyrics, and emotional exposure.  Love.

PS:  Thanks to Bill and RP for introducing me to this (disgusting, perverted attempt to corrupt children) fabulously talented musician/group.  Bought a bunch of their music through the RP linky thingy.
FYI:  Hang on to it if you have one of these CDROM's .. They are going for big bucks in the eBay Presidential Memorbilia area and on the Failed Campaigns site.

 Austin - Today’s Washington Post reports that a compact disc clearly marketed towards children containing offensive language was handed out in a ‘gift bag’ at last month’s Democrat National Convention.  The report comes just ten days after Al Gore said he would take a “tough line” with Hollywood executives who market inappropriate material to children.

“America's parents can't count on Al Gore to protect their kids from Hollywood's inappropriate marketing practices," said Bush spokesman Dan Bartlett.  "If the Democrats didn't stop Dreamworks from handing out a CD with explicit lyrics at a convention under their control, why will they stop Hollywood from marketing the same material to children at other venues?"

Offensive CD Distributed at DNC Fundraiser
During a fundraiser at the Democrat National Convention, a compact disc, “Daisies of the Galaxy,” by Eels was handed out.  Democrats say the CD was not meant for or given to children, but the material was directly marketed for children.  The CD features cartoon children on the front cover, but contains songs such as “It’s a MotherF@#%&#” and lyrics like, “When I grow up, I’ll be an angry little whore.”

CD Produced by Gore’s Prominent Fundraiser Friends
The “Daisies of the Galaxy” CD was produced by Dreamworks, which is run by Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen - three of Al Gore’s most identifiable contributors.  In this election cycle alone, the trio has contributed a total of $525,000 to the Democrat National Committee, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Buen sonido!
'Kinell! An Eels song with a bit of life and zip. Makes a nice change from the usual lullabies. 7 from the surprised Nottingham jury.
Ohhh...Yeah!
My favorite Eels song EVER.......thanks for playing!
I was introduced to this band (guy) by Bill and Radio Paradise.  Aint' life grand?  Thanks, Bill!
Yup its Saturday morning 6:06 and Eels is singing "It's saturday morning And who's gonna play with me". I am rocking to this great tune. The lyrics don't match my situation with young kids sleeping instead of the parents. I'll have to listen to this song and more of Eels work as this was great.

It's 9:00 in the morning on Saturday here, but I think where Bill is it's 6:00 AM, just like the song says.  Coincidence?

Rockage!

This is officially the Eels' third-best song (after Fresh Feeling and Woman Driving/Man Sleeping).

I don't mind eels Except as meals. And the way they feels. good ol' Ogden Nash
One of the best album titles ever, if nothing else.

Woah, it really IS 6am on Saturday morning.. IN AUSTRALIA! Nice timing, Bill, for your nether-regioned listeners.

He he he! "Eels, schmeels" sounds really funny when you imagine it with a big gnarly thick British accent.
Yiss, tha'ud be "I'lls Smills innit?"
The rhythm guitar sounds a lot similar to the Hives' "Hate to say I told you so". :think:
Just what I needed to make it through another night of finals week!!!

awesome tune!
Sounds just like the previous song. Maybe the eels can sell cell phones or cars, or whatever. Plastic junk!

Parts get a tepid "yes"; parts get a solid "no."

:jump: OOoooooh yeah! This one just rolls! :jump: I remember Saturdays like this.

Your wish is granted today. This song sounds very dandy to me. :)
This song just rocks. The only thing I would change would be to get some ladies to sing the falsetto part. E can't quite hit the high notes.
Two of my faves in a row...thank YOU!

I liked this song even better earlier today. :moon:
Uh, "Saturday" seems to come quite a bit more here than once a week lately.....
Look, I\'m an Eels fan. Beautiful Freak was a great disc. I\'ve appreciated later tunes as well. But I\'m SO FRICKIN\' SICK of hearing this song on RP. I liked it at first, but it\'s the only song I hear at LEAST twice a day on RP. Please remove it from rotation, so that I might remember what I liked about it in the first place... :cry: :evil: :cry:
Another solid, largely underappreciated, Eels song. Saw them in concert Sunday night -- great show. Nice acoustic version of \"Rock Hard Times\" from this album. :clap:
Even more perfect for a saturday morning
Perfect for the Friday afternoon, windin' down for the long weekend! :motor:

Yeah it's worth a buy IMHO. I like Daisies of the Galaxy the best myself but definitely give it thumbs up.
Was on EELS website yesterday. Go to the \"Ask Uncle E.\" section-it\'s hilarious! This is another band I wish I was in. When Butch quits, I think E. should hire me to play drums.

Which sounds exactly like Blur's song 2. It's a vicious cycle man...

great song. mr. e rocks, its good to hear that he\'s a bit more optimistic with this album. :clap:
thanks for playing their new stuff for us
Good stuff. How about leading into some Ramones afterward? That\'s definitely an underplayed band on RP.
THEY JAM!!! :eek: :clap: :p (pimp)
Eels have a new album!! Great new!!! Thanks RP!! (pimp)
Cool :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
I find I like the Eels more and more... keep \'em comin\'!
If it weren't for the Eels, there wouldn't be much rawkin' around here.
I don\'t know why, but I just can\'t stop tapping my heels to this one. :p
That was great!
