I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
I'll punch out and put in
Another long night again, missin' you
I got these 5:01 blues
I used to watch that old clock on the wall
Wishin' I could make time fly
But ever since you walked out on me
Quittin' time just make me wanna cry
I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
I'll punch out and put in
Another long night again, lovin' you
I've got these 5:01 blues
I could go out and find somebody new
I'd only spoil her fun
My mind still says that it's time to love you
When the clock says the workday is done
I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
I'll punch out and put in
Another long night again, missin' you
I've got these 5:01 blues
I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
And I'll punch out and put in
Another long night again, missin' you
I've got these 5:01 blues
(spoken)
Oh man, I got no place to go
No one to go to (fade
