Lyrics

(Mac)
The sun is hot and that old clock is movin’ slow, And so am I
Work day passes like molasses in wintertime, But it’s July
I’m gettin’ paid by the hour, and older by the minute
My boss just put me over the limit
I’d love to call him somethin’
I 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

(Jimmy)
This lunch break is gonna take all afternoon, And half the night
Tomorrow I know that there will 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 phone is for me
You can tell ‘em I just sailed away

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

(Mac)
I could pay off my tab, pour myself in a cab,
And be back to work before two
At a moment like this, You can’t help but wonder
What would Jimmy Buffett do?

(Jimmy ad-lib)

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
I don’t care
It’s five o’clock somewhere
