"This Afternoon" as written by Robert John Lange, Chad Robert Kroeger, Chad Robert Kroeger and Ryan Anthony Peake....
Lookin' like another Bob Marley day
Hittin' from the bong like a diesel train
And I'm down with hanging out this afternoon

We got weeds in the backyard four feet tall
Cheech and Chong probably would of smoked 'em all
So I'm out on the couch this afternoon

Beer bottles layin' on the kitchen floor
If we take 'em all back we can buy some more
So I doubt we'll go without this afternoon

You better hang on if your taggin' along
'Cause we'll be doin' this 'till six in the mornin'
Nothin' wrong with goin' all night long
Just not tough to put the brakes on,
Doesn't matter when you'd rather
Get up, and go out
Me and all my friends
We drink up, we fall down
And then we do it all again

Just sitting around, hangin' out this afternoon

Landlord says I should buy a tent
But he can kiss my ass 'cause I paid the rent
So I doubt he'll kick me out this afternoon

Down on the corner in a seedy bar
Jukebox crankin' out the CCR
Had a few, to Suzy Q this afternoon

You better hang on if your taggin' along
'Cause we'll be doin' this 'till six in the mornin'
Nothin' wrong with goin' all night long
Just not tough to put the brakes on,
Doesn't matter when you'd rather
Get up, and go out
Me and all my friends
We drink up, we fall down
And then we do it all again

Yeah we get up, and go out
Me and all my friends
We drink up, we fall down
And then we do it all again
Yeah, just sitting around hanging out this afternoon

Don't wanna wristwatch or an alarm clock
To see what time it is
From the moment I wake up
I just love being with my friends
We barely get by but have the best times
And hope it never ends
We drink all day until we fall down
So we can do it all again

It's not the human walk
It's the human race
If you ain't livin' on edge
You're takin' too much space
So I doubt I'll figure out
Just what to do
'Bout to kick it around
Hanging out this afternoon

You better hang on if your taggin' along
'Cause we'll be doin' this 'till six in the mornin'
Nothin' wrong with goin' all night long
Just not tough to put the brakes on,
Doesn't matter when you'd rather
Get up, and go out
Me and all my friends
We drink up, we fall down
And then we do it all again

Yeah we get up, and go out
Me and all my friends
We drink up, we fall down
And then we do it all again
Just sitting around
Get up, and go out
Me and all my friends
We drink up, we fall down
And then we do it all again

Just kicking around, hanging out this afternoon
Sitting around, hanging out this afternoon
Just kicking around, hanging out this afternoon
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon

    General CommentAnother favorite. Very catchy and lets you think of the good times really. Pretty self explanatory like many of the lyrics off the new album.

    MemoryMakes me remember my graduation. The night after all the grads went camping and we were partying all night and we all went to be at like sunrise because we were up all night having a time. Good memories even if it was only last year, but still this song will alway remind me of my graduation.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a group of friends (particularly teenagers) who during the summer are just having a good time by partying at either a cabin or campsite that last all night long and follows into the next day ("Do it all again")
