[Alan Jackson]
The sun is hot and that old clock is movin' slow and so am I
Work day passes like molasses in winter time, but it's July.
Getting paid by the hour and older by the minute.
My boss just pushed me over the limit.
I could call him something, think I'll just call it a day.

Pour me something 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

[Alan Jackson]
This lunch break is gonna take all afternoon, half the night
Tomorrow morning I know there'll be h-e-l-l to pay
But hey 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's for me you can tell them I just sailed away


[Alan Jackson]
I could pay off my tab, pour myself
In a cab and be back to work before two.
At a moment like this, I can't help
But wonder what would Jimmy Buffett do.

[Jimmy Buffett]
Funny you should ask Alan, I'd say
Pour me something tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care.

[Chorus - Both Sing]

But he don't care, I don't care.

It's five o'clock somewhere.

Jimmy: What time zone am I on? What country am I in?
Alan: It doesn't matter, it's five o'clock somewhere.
Jimmy: It's always on time for Margarita ville. Come to think of it.
Alan: I heard that.
Jimmy: You've been there haven't ya?
Alan: Yes sir!
Jimmy: I've seen your boat there.
Alan: I've been to Margarita ville a few times.
Jimmy: Alright, that's good.
Alan: Stumbled on my way back.
Jimmy: Okay, well I just want to make sure you keep it between the navigational beacons.
Alan: Ha ha ha! Keep it between the buoys. I got it!
Jimmy: Alright, well it's five o'clock. Let's go somewhere.
Alan: I'm ready. Crank it up!
Jimmy: Let's get out of here.
Alan: I'm gone!
