Five O'clock World

In the style of

Hal Ketchum

Lyrics

up every mornin'
just to keep a job
gotta fight
my way through
the hustlin' mob

sounds of the city
poundin' in my brain
while another day
goes down the drain

but it's
a five o'clock world
when the
whistle blows
no one owns
a piece of my time

and there's
a five o'clock me
inside my clothes
thinkin' that
the world looks fine
yeah
yodel ay ee ee
ooh wee ee ee oh

tradin' my time
for the pay i get
livin' on money
that i ain't made yet
gotta keep goin'
gotta make my way
but i live for
the end of the day

'cause it's
a five o'clock world
when the
whistle blows
no one owns
a piece of my time

and there's
a long-haired girl
who waits i know
to ease
my troubled mind
yeah

yodel ay ee ee
ooh wee ee ee oh
yodel ay ee ee
ooh wee ee ee oh

in the shelter
of her arms
everything's ok
she talks
and the world goes
slippin' away

i know the reason
i can still go on
when every other
reason is gone

'cause in my
five o'clock world
she waits for me
nothin' else matters
at all

'cause every time
my baby smiles at me
i know that
it's all worthwhile
yeah

yodel ay ee ee
ooh wee ee ee oh
yodel ay ee ee
ooh wee ee ee oh

yodel ay ee ee
ooh wee ee ee oh
yodel ay ee ee
ooh wee ee ee oh
yodel ay ee ee
ooh wee ee ee oh
