I work all day as a soda jerk
On my feet all the time and oh man, how they hurt
Don't make much, but I sure get the news
I don't have much time for gettin' the blues
My friends drop in for sodas and pop
There'll all talking fancy about a new record hop
All day long I'm a-fillin' orders
Takin' in nickels, dimes and quarters
Cherry sodas and a chocolate shake
Strawberry sundaes and a lemon fast fake
Time to clean the fountain, 'cause it's almost five
You know me dad, after five I jive
I wanna jive, ah-ah-ah, I wanna jive
Ooh-ooh-ooh, I wanna jive, yes, after five
Oh-oh-oh, I wanna jive, man alive, after five
Well, I mop the floor and I wipe the counter
I just work here dad, I'm not the founder
I keep a-workin' and a-watchin' the clock
A-peepin' out the window for my baby to stop
We'll head out of town for a little night dive
Because you know me dad, after five I jive
All day long I'm a-fillin' orders
Takin' in nickels, dimes and quarters
Cherry cokes and tariff bill
A cone of vanilla with a chocolate's fill
Time to clean the fountain, 'cause it's almost five
You know me dad, after five I jive
I wanna jive, I wanna jive
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, and then we jive
Yeah, I wanna jive, yes, man alive
Come on now cat, let's jive
Everybody rock, I wanna jive
Ah-ah-ah, I wanna jive
Ooh-ooh-ooh, I wanna jive
Yes, I wanna jive
Man alive, I wanna jive
Jive, jive after five
