What do you do when you were a kid on a Saturday? Do you hang out with your friends or do you just stay at home? Growing up in a small town there is not much to do, just hang out with your friends in open places. Of course, when you were young, you do not also have money, therefore, the things you can do is limited. In Hal Ketchum’s popular song “Small Town Saturday Night,” he tells a story of the life of young teenagers living in a small town with only limited things to do.
