TGIF – Song of the Week

It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” is a song by Alan Jackson and legendary boating singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffet. It came out in 2003 and went on to become the #3 country song of the Decade on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart.

This is a fun, feel good song and the video is pretty entertaining too. The tiki bar featured in the video is the Square Grouper in Jupiter, FL near Jackson’s home. The Sportfish in the begining is actually Jackson’s personal boat, the “Hullbilly”.

Happy Friday Everyone! As always, feel free to leave a comment with your favorite boating songs.

The sun is hot and that old clock is movin’ slow
And so am I
The workday passes like molasses in wintertime
But it’s July

I’m gettin’ paid by the hour and older by the minute
My boss just pushed me over the limit
I’d like to call it somethin’
I think I’ll just call it a day

Chorus
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 5 O’clock somewhere

This lunch break is gonna take all afternoon
half the night
Tomorrow morning I know they’ll be hell to pay
Hey, but that’s alright

I ain’t had a day off now in over a year
My Jamican vacation’s gonna start right here
Get the phones for me
You can tell ’em I just sailed away

Chorus
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 5 O’clock somewhere

I could pay off my tab
Pour myself in a cab
And be back to work before 2

At a moment like this
I can’t help but wonder
What would Jimmy Buffet do?

Jimmy Buffet
Funny you should ask that
I’d say
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

Jimmy buffett and Alan Jackson together
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
Alan Jackson: He don’t care… I don’t care
It’s five o’clock somewhere

Jimmy Buffett
What time zone am I on?
What country am I in?

Alan Jackson
It doesn’t matter, it’s five o’clock somewhere

Jimmy Buffett
It’s always on 5 in margarittaville come to think of it

Alan Jackson

Jimmy Buffett
Well alright, I just wanna make sure you can keep it between the navigational beacon.
Alright, well it’s five o’clock, let’s go somewhere.

Alan Jackson

Jimmy Buffett
