"It's Five O' Clock Somewhere (with Jimmy Buffet)" as written by Jim Brown and Don Rollins....
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, 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

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

This lunch break is gonna take all afternoon and half the night
Tomorrow morning I know there'll be here to pay, hey, but that's all right
I ain't had a day off now in over a year
My Jamaican vacation is gonna start right here
If the phone's 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 tip
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?

I 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

    General CommentYeah...I agree. It's about 5:23pm in California and 7:23pm here in ND. It's beer thirty when I get home. I love this song because it may be the best drinking song of all time, next to anything written by Flogging Molly.

    General CommentI was at the concert in Indianapolis where they filmed part of this songs video. I spent some time in Margaritaville that night. Which reminds me, I need a drink. And OpinionHead is right, Flogging Molly kicks ass to drink to.

    General CommentI love this song. I didn't have the song at the time a scenario happened like this to me at college with the headteacher. Had a massive arguement with her at college, stormed out on her without saying anything rude and didn't return for the rest of the day. Just went home and had some....Pepsi -.- lmao

    Oh, and I definately had hell to pay the next morning, but it was ok. I got my own back :D
