Well it's a 5 o'clock world when the whistle blows And I'm attending to you And it's a 5 o'clock shadow when the missile blows I thank god for you Working so hard for the pay I get Living on money that I ain't got yet I try so hard just to be myself When I'd rather be somebody else Well it's a 5 o'clock world when the whistle blows And I'm attending to you And it's a 5 o'clock shadow when the missile blows I thank god for you I know a place where we can hide from the human race outside. The countdowns started & your bags are packed. We leave this planet tonight, my dear, let's ride... In the shelter of her arms everything's okay She smiles and the world goes whistling away She gives me reason to carry on When every other reason is gone Well it's a 5 o'clock world when the whistle blows And I'm attending to you And it's a mighty small planet when the missile blows I thank god for you Well it's a 5 o'clock world when the whistle blows And I'm attending to you And it's a mighty small planet when the missile blows I thank god for you
