“Better days are coming. They are called Saturday and Sunday”

"Better days are coming. They are called Saturday and Sunday” is a jocular work saying that has been printed on many images.  “Cheer up. Better days are coming. They’re called Saturday and Sunday” was printed in Changing Times (The Kiplinger Magazine) in October 1970.

“Better days are just around the corner. They are called Friday, Saturday and Sunday” is a related saying from 2011.
