Lyrics
The sun is hot and that ol' clock is movin' slow and so am IWorkday passes like molasses in wintertime but it's JulyGettin' paid by the hour, older by the minuteMy boss just pushed me over the limitI'd like to call him somethin' but think I'll just call it a dayAnd pour me somethin' tall and strongMake it a hurricane before I go insaneIt's only half past twelve, but I don't careIt's five o'clock somewhereThis lunch break is gonna take all afternoon and half the nightTomorrow morning I know there'll be here to pay, hey, but that's all rightI ain't had a day off now in over a yearMy Jamaican vacation is gonna start right hereIf the phone's for me you can tell 'em I've just sailed awayAnd pour me somethin' tall and strongMake it a hurricane before I go insaneIt's only half past twelve, but I don't careIt's five o'clock somewhereI could pay off my tipPour myself in a cab and be back to work before 2At a moment like this, I can't help but wonderWhat would Jimmy Buffett do?I say, pour me somethin' tall and strongMake it a hurricane before I go insaneIt's only half past twelve, but I don't carePour me somethin' tall and strongMake it a hurricane before I go insaneIt's only half past twelve, but I don't care

He don't care and I don't care, it's five o'clock somewhere
