The sun is hot and that old clock is movin' slow, 
An' so am I. 
Work day passes like molasses in wintertime, 
But it's July. 
I'm gettin' paid by the hour, an' older by the minute. 
My boss just pushed me over the limit. 
I'd like to call him somethin', 
I think I'll just call it a day. 
 
Pour me somethin' tall an' 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. 
 
Oh, this lunch break is gonna take all afternoon, 
An' half the night. 
Tomorrow mornin', 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. 
Our Jamaican vacation's gonna start right here. 
Hit the 'phones for me, 
You can tell 'em I just sailed away. 
 
An' pour me somethin' tall an' 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, 
An' be back to work before two. 
At a moment like this, I can't help but wonder, 
What would Jimmy Buffet do? 
 
Funny you should ask that because I'd say: 
Pour me somethin' tall an' strong, 
Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane. 
It's only half-past twelve but I don't care. 
 
Pour me somethin' tall an' strong, 
Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane. 
It's only half-past twelve but I don't care. 
He don't care. 
I don't care. 
It's five o'clock somewhere. 
 
What time zone am on? What country am I in? 
It doesn't matter, it's five o'clock somewhere. 
It's always on five in Margaritaville, come to think of it. 
Yeah, I heard that. 
You been there haven't you. 
Yessir. 
I seen your boat there. 
I've been to Margaritaville a few times. 
All right, that's good. 
Stumbled all the way back. 
OK. Just wanna make sure you can keep it between the navigational beacons. 
Between the buoys, I tell you. 
All right. Well, it's five o'clock. Let's go somewhere. 
I'm ready, crank it up. 
Let's get out of here. 
I'm gone. 
Let's get out of here.
