5 Seconds Of Summer – Hey Everybody! lyrics

[Intro: Calum]
Sounds good, feels good

[Verse 1: Luke & All]
She maxed her credit cards and don't got a job
She pays the gas with all the change in her car
It's not the end of the road

Yeah, we've all been there before and it goes oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
He's walking home cause he can't pay for the bus
He needs a dollar but he ain't got enough
It's not the end of the world
Yeah, we've all been there before and it goes oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Chorus: All]
Hey everybody, we don't have to live this way
We can all get some, yeah, we can all get paid
So what you say everybody? Gotta live it up today
We can all get some, yeah, we can all get paid
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Verse 2: Michael & All]
Don't have your rent and it's the first of the month
Your bank account has got insufficient funds
We can't afford to give up
We gotta make out on luck and it goes
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Work every weekend just to get out of town
Everyone says that you'll just turn back around
And what's ironic to me, the ones that don't ever leave
That that they know
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Chorus: All]
Hey everybody, we don't have to live this way
We can all get some, yeah, we can all get paid
So what you say everybody? Gotta live it up today
We can all get some, yeah, we can all get paid
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Bridge: Calum/All]
Hey everybody, we don't have to live this way
We can all get some, yeah, we can all get paid

[Chorus: All & Ashton]
So what you say everybody? Gotta live it up today
We can all get some, yeah, we can all get paid
Hey
Gotta live it up today
Oh
Yeah we don't have to live this way

    Okay so maybe I'm just looking too far into things (I tend to do that a lot), but I feel like this song is about more than just not having any money. To me, this song is about starting from the bottom and making your way to the top. The music video in the beginning shows Calum, Mikey, Luke, and Ashton all having crappy jobs that they hate, but they have to work otherwise they won't have any money. I see this as a metaphor for when they were first starting out and they had so many people telling them they'd never make it. But, they kept on dreaming about that one day when they would hopefully get discovered, just like in the video how they're dreaming about what it would be like if they had tons of money and didn't have to work. Then, at the end, they're all doing the jobs they want and they don't have to worry about money anymore because they worked hard enough to earn the higher paying jobs. Now, 5sos doesn't have to worry about the people who said they couldn't do it, because through hard work and dedication, they've already proven them wrong. Again, I could just be looking for a deeper meaning here, but that's what it means to me.
