It's Five O'Clock Somewhere Lyrics

"It's Five O' Clock Somewhere"

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...

    Life is short and he is wasting his working. The workdays pass by slowly and his bus just pushed him over his limits. He's leaving work and at 12:30 he decided to drink his day away. "I haven’t had a day off in more than a year, I’m going to start drinking now. If someone calls, tell them I just left" (summarized version)

    This guy is rationalizing staying out after lunch and getting ripped.....Even saying he hasn't had a day off in a year tells me he probably has a shit job..without holidays... I'd just book a two week vacation and then rip it up.....The Jimmy Buffet touch was good ..... Since Margaritaville is his hometown

    This guy is bored at his job and wants to hop in a cab and get hammered at his lunch hour.
