"Friday, Friday, football's played on Friday/Gotta get down on Friday/F-R-I-D-A-Y/It's Friday, gonna break it down on Friday/Everyone's looking forward to the weekend/It's football on Friday, Friday Night Football/You get down on Friday, everyone's looking forward to the weekend/Yesterday was Thursday, today is Friday/Gotta get down, gotta get down on Friday/Tomorrow is Saturday, tomorrow is Saturday/Sunday is afterwards."
The best part's the conversation Burris and Francis have at the end, though:
Burris: Ka-ching, ka-ching!
Francis: Yeah, that's big money.
Burris: We're going to cry all the way to the bank.
For reference, here's TSN's current Friday Night Football theme. Should the Burris track replace it?
I'd suggest that Burris probably shouldn't quit his day job just yet; after all, he was chosen as the CFL's most outstanding player last year, and he's probably got a better chance of repeating there than he does of winning a Juno. Still, on the continuum of Burris' non-football activities (which have ranged from embarrassing pictures in women's underwear and getting mocked for them to inaccurately predicting that the "Eastern media" would keep him from winning the Most Outstanding Player award), this is pretty good. He gets plenty of props for the effort he puts into carrying a joke like this (even if he does almost crack up laughing a couple of times during the song). I doubt TSN's going to use it as a Friday Night Football theme (even with the shoutout in there!), and their viewers will probably thank them, but they should try it once at the start of the year; the reaction could be priceless. I don't know about you, but Burris' version of "Friday" certainly has me anticipating the return of football...
