Up every mornin' just to keep a job,
        E        D               E        D
I gotta fight my way through the hustling mob.
E             D             E     D
Sounds of the city poundin' in my brain,
      E           D             E            E7
While another day goes down the drain. Yeah, yeah.

CHORUS:#1.
E7         A            D              A       D
But it's a five o'clock world when the whistle blows,
A             D           A    D
No one owns a piece of my time.
             A            D    A       D
And theres a five o'clock me inside my clothes,
A                             B     B7
Thinkin' that the world looks fine, yeah.

#2.
E          D            E     D
Tradin' my time for the pay I get,
E         D            E          D
Livin' on money that I ain't made yet.
E          D               E       D
Gotta keep goin' tryin' to make my way,
        E            D          E          E7
While I live for the end of the day.(Yeah, yeah.)

CHORUS:#2.
E7         A            D              A       D
But it's a five o'clock world when the whistle blows,
A             D           A   D
No one owns a piece of my time. 
              A           D        A        D
And there's a long-haired girl who waits, I know,
   A                B     B7
To ease my troubled mind, yeah.

(INTERLUDE:)

#3.
E                     D         E       D
In the shelter of her arms everything's OK.
    E                 D          E         D
She talks and the the world goes slippin' away.
    E          D            E        D
And I know the reason I can still go on,
     E           D         E           E7
When every other reason is gone, yeah, yeah.

CHORUS:#3.
E7    A            D         A         D
In my five o'clock world she waits for me.
A            D          A   D
Nothing else matters at all.
D     A             D    A         D
Cause every time my baby smiles at me,
A                         B      B7
I know thats it's all worthwhile. Yeah.
