Five O'Clock World
The Vogues Lyrics


(Up!)
(Up!)
Up every morning just to keep a job (up!)
I gotta fight my way through the hustling mob (up!)
Sounds of the city pounding in my brain (up!)
While another day goes down the drain (up!)
(Yeah, 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
Thinking that the world looks fine, yeah
A-da-lay-ee-ee (up, up, up!)

Trading my time for the pay I get (up!)
Living on money that I ain't made yet (up!)
Gotta keep goin' gotta make my way (up!)
But I live for the end of the day (up!)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) '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!
A-da-lay-ee-ee (up, up, up!)

In the shelter of her arms everything's okay (yeah-yeah) (up!)
She talks and the world goes slipping away (it slips away) (up!)
And I know the reason I can still go on
When every other reason is gone
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) in my five o'clock world she waits for me
Nothing else matters at all
'Cause every time my baby smiles at me
I know that it's all worthwhile, yeah
A-da-lay-ee-ee (up, up, up!)
A-da-lay-ee-ee (up, up, up!)

Back in High School my girlfriend and I claimed this as “our song”...we’ve been married fifty three years now.

Bob Brogley

Congrats! We will be 51 years in three weeks. Love this classic from Pittsburgh PA.

Peter Franks

Bless you both

Catherine Nyberg

🥰to you and your wife!
I’m so glad we found this again.
Our grandson is going to sing this in his talent show/ as the exit performance for Junior High
We’re so glad he picked a song that actually has meaning for all the hard word he’s put into school.

Great minds I think alike.
To this day certain songs put me mentally if not physically in a certain time and place..
I got there right after the Tet Offensive.
Left in ' 71

Congratulations! i first saw them in roughly 1991 at the age of 8 with my parents. Great tunes and great memories with my parents! They have been together nearly 45 years.

My mom went to school with these guys!! She introduced me to all of them when I was still little

40 years working construction I can relate to this so much. When I left the jobsite no matter how hard I worked went home to my wife and children. Everything was so much better  when I saw their smiles and felt their hugs.

Package and warehouse work for me for over 16 years. Before that I worked in the restaurant industry. Hard work both times. While in college I worked on campus, did temp jobs and was in the Marine Corps Reserve. I can definitely relate to this song.
