This song was recorded as a duet with Jimmy Buffett ... a Florida boy and a next door neighbour Georgia boy but neither of them wrote the song. It got Jackson on the pop charts for the first time at #65 and became Buffett's first top 10 song since the 1970's when it came out in 2003. The song was a #1 hit on the country charts.

Its Five Oclock Somewhere Lyrics

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 the limit
I'd like to call him somethin' - I think I'll just call it a day

Pour me somethin' tall an' 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

Oh, this lunch break is gonna take all afternoon - An' half the night
Tomorrow mornin', I know there'll be hell to pay - Hey, but that's all right
I ain't had a day off now in over a year
Our Jamaican vacation's gonna start right here
Hit the 'phones for me you can tell 'em I just sailed away

An' pour me somethin' tall an' 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

I could pay off my tab pour myself in a cab an' be back to work before two
At a moment like this, I can't help but wonder - What would Jimmy Buffet do?

Pour me somethin' tall an' strong make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane
It's only half-past twelve - but I don't care
Pour me somethin' tall an' 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
