Thread Name: 'Everybody Loves Saturday Night'
Subject: RE: 'Everybody Loves Saturday Night'
The song was popularized by Pete Seeger. I don't remember his source but he was responsible for putting the foreign language verses to it. I know because I was with him when he called a Chinese restaurant to add a verse.

As I understand the song from Pete, it's about the curfew placed by the government (Nigerian?) on the people for Saturday nights and this song was a protest against the restriction.
