The sun is hot and that ol' clock is movin' slow and so am I
Workday passes like molasses in wintertime but it's July
Gettin' paid by the hour and older by the minute
My boss just pushed me over the limit
I'd like to call him somethin' but think I'll just call it a day

Pour me somethin' tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care
It's five o'clock somewhere

This lunch break is gonna take all afternoon and half the night
Tomorrow morning I know there'll be hell to pay, hey but that's all right
I ain't had a day off now in over a year
My Jamaican vacation's gonna start right here
If the phones for me, you can tell 'em I've just sailed away

And pour me somethin' tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care
It's five o'clock somewhere

I could pay off my tab
Pour myself in a cab and be back to work before 2
At a moment like this, I can't help but wonder
What would Jimmy Buffett do?

Funny you should ask, Alan I'd say
Pour me somethin' tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care

Pour me somethin' tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care
He don't care and I don't care
It's five o'clock somewhere

What time zone am I on? What country am I in?
It doesn't matter, it's five o'clock somewhere
It's always on five in Margarita Ville, come to think of it
I heard that
You've been there haven't you?
Yes, sir
I've seen your boat there
I've been to Margarita Ville a few times
All right, that's good
Stumbled my way back
Okay just want to make sure
You can keep it between the navigational beacons
Between the bouys, I got it
All right, it's five o'clock
Let's go somewhere
I'm ready, crank it up
Let's get out of here, I'm gone
