Subject: RE: 'Everybody Loves Saturday Night'
Pablo, it's probably a corruption of what I posted. 'Eider' doesn't mean anything, but comes close to 'jeder' in pronunciation. 'Hat' is an easy substitution to make if you've forgotten the proper verb - it just means has. And 'Samstag abend' means basically the same as 'Sonnabend nacht' - 'Saturday evening / night'. 'Sonnabend' is a north German term, 'Samstag' the more common one over the rest of Germany. I find my version sings better. Where did you learn it? And is there a Spanish verse? - Susanne
