Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Up in the morning just to keep a job
Got to fight my way through the hustling mob

Left allemande then you dosado
Left allemande and weave it you know
But it's a five o'clock world when the whistle blows
Swing and promenade her in time
And there's a long-haired girl who waits, I know
To ease my troubled mind


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru, count 'em 4 hands go
Make a right hand star and roll it round there you know
The heads star left and turn it one time round
To the corner do the right & left thru
Swing thru and then, swing thru again
Swing and promenade her in time
And there's a five o'clock me inside my clothes
Thinking that the world looks fine


TAG

(Yodel or let instrumental play)

ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Trading my time for the pay I get
I'm living on money that I ain't made yet

*In the shelter of her arms everything's ok
She speaks and the world goes slipping away

Five O'Clock World
 
 

Up every mornin' just to keep a job
I gotta fight my way through the hustling mob
Sounds of the city poundin' in my brain
While another day goes down the drain (yeah, yeah)

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
Holiday, yeah!

Tradin' my time for the pay I get
Livin' on money that I ain't made yet
I've been goin' tryin' to make my way
While I live for the end of the day (yeah, yeah)

Cuz it's a five o'clock world when the whistle blows
No one owns a piece of my time
There's a long-haired girl who waits, I know
To ease my troubled mind, yeah
Holiday, yeah!

In the shelter of her arms everything's OK
When she talks then the world goes slippin' away
And I know the reason I can still go on
When every other reason is gone, (yeah, yeah)

In my five o'clock world she waits for me
Nothing else matters at all
Cuz every time my baby smiles at me
I know that's it's all worthwhile, yeah
Holiday, yeah!
Holiday, yeah!
Holiday, yeah!

Lyrics by Allen Reynolds.
Recorded by The Vogues.
