The Students Every Day of the Week

The Students Every Day of the Week

Doo Wop Groups

The Students formed in Cincinnati in 1956. The members included Leroy King, Dorsey Porter, Roy Ford, John Bolden, Richard Johnson, and guitarist Ralph Byrd. Their songs “I’m So Young” and “Every Day of the Week” became doo wop classics. Both were written by fellow Cincinnatian William H. “Prez” Tyus, Jr., who managed the group. “Every Day of the Week” relies on more of an uptempo novelty approach rather than being a ballad of love, romance, and innocence. It’s full of joy. The song was issued as a Note singled in 1958 and then reissued as a Checker Single later that year. There was another reissue as an Argo single in 1961.

“Every Day of the Week” was featured in an episode of The Sopranos. “I’m So Young” has been covered numerous times, including versions by The Beach Boys, Rosie and the Originals, and The Ronettes.

Here are the lyrics to “Every Day” by The Students:

“Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

Any old time every day of the week
I want a love just as long as it’s for me
Any old love that will be true
And that love it might be you

A Sunday, a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, a Sunday

Any old time every day of the week
I want a love just as long as it’s for me
Any old love that will be true
And that love it might be you

Any old time every day of the week
I want a love just as long as it’s for me
Any old love that will be true
And that love it might be you

Oh oh oh oh…

A Sunday, a Monday, Tuesday, a Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, a Sunday

Oh oh oh oh…”

After a song is featured, it then goes into the juke box. You are welcome to listen to any of the 40+ selections there. Every weekend, there is a Golden Oldies Juke Box Saturday Night, and the juke box is full of song requests from the 1950s and 1960s.

    Sounds remarkably like Frankie Lymon?
