The Lyrics

Burbank in morning like the bomb dropping
School bells are ringing, S.U.V.'s roar
Children are screaming, grown ups are shouting
My ears are ringing, Monday once more.

Saturday morning louder than ever
Traffic is rushing to garage sales
People are swarming, everyone haggling
Something alarming arrives in the mail.

Mine is the noise wee hours in the morning
High school boys always par - tay
Butthead conventions go on 'till the dawning
Their recreation goes night and day.

Ah yes...the Beautiful Downtown Burbank immortalized by Rowan and Martin's Laugh In. Nice evocation by someone who has obviously been there. Nice job...go Eagle!! ;D

Thanks, NorCalGal - now I see who Saturday is really named after. Thanks, Old Man - it was much nicer during the sixties before all the traffic.

OMR - Wasn't it Johnny Carson who always remarked on Beautiful Downtown BUR? ... long time ago, not sure.

Song probably works for most other cities and towns too, but what WB (Warner Brothers! -- used to be in downtown Hollywood; no clue now.) said about slice-of-life. 555 if could vote.

Saturday was named after the Roman god Saturn.
(Sunday - Sun. Monday - Moon. Thursday - Thor. Friday - Freya. Tuesday - Tuesday Weld. Wednesday - Weddings. ;)

TT, I believe it was Carson.

Thanks, Warren - slice of real life. Thanks, TT - True Saturday is for the god Saturn, but All the Satyrs tom cat around so that seems suitable. Thanks, John - rowan and Martin must have got that from Johnny.
