Jimmy Buffett Great Filling Station Holdup Song Lyrics

By: jimmy buffett
1973
I pulled into the regular pump
I was feelin’ quite at ease
I rolled down my window and told the man, “fifty cents worth please”
Then out jumped my partner with his trusty pellet gun
He said, “boy this is a holdup, keep ‘a pumpin’ and don’t run”

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Because that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

We got fifteen dollars and a can of stp
A big ol’ jar of cashew nuts and a japanese tv
Feelin’ we had pulled the biggest heist of our career
We’re wanted men, we’ll strike again
But first let’s have a beer

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Because that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

(guitar instrumental)

We were sittin’ in the krystal
About as drunk as we could be
In walks the deputy sheriff
And he’s holdin’ our tv
Roughed us then he cuffed us
And he took us off to jail
No pictures on a poster, no reward and no bail

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
’cause that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

Coda:
Yes that great fillin’ station holdup
It cost me two good years

JIMMY BUFFETT It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere Song LYRICS

The sun is hot and that old clock,
is movin’ slow, and so am I.
Work day passes like molasses,
in winter time, but it’s July.

Getting paid by the hour,
and older by the minute.
My boss just pushed me,
over the limit.

I could call him something,
think I’ll just call it a day…

Pour me something tall and strong.
Make it a hurricane, before I go insane.
It’s only half past twelve. But I don’t care,
it’s five o’clock somewhere.

This lunch break is gonna take
all afternoon, half the night.
Tomorrow morning I know there’ll be hell to pay,
but, hey, that’s all right.

I ain’t had a day off now, in over a year.
My Jamaican vacation’s gonna start right here.
If the phone’s for me you can tell them
I just sailed away….

Pour me something tall and strong.
Make it a hurricane, before I go insane.
It’s only half past twelve. But I don’t care,
it’s five o’clock somewhere.

[Instrumental]

I could pay off my tab, pour myself in a cab,
and be back to work before two.
At a moment like this, I can’t help but wonder,
what would Jimmy Buffett do.

[Jimmy:]
Funny you should ask Alan, I’d say…
Pour me something tall and strong.
Make it a hurricane, before I go insane.
It’s only half past twelve, but I don’t care.

[Together:]
Pour me something tall and strong.
Make it a hurricane, before I go insane.
It’s only half past twelve. But I don’t care,
it’s five o’clock somewhere.

[Alan:]
… but he don’t care, I don’t care.
Together
It’s five o’clock somewhere.

[Talking:]
[Jimmy:] What time zone am I on? What country am I in?
[Alan:] It doesn’t matter, it’s five o’clock somewhere!
[Jimmy:] It’s always on time for Margaritaville, come to think of it.
[Alan:] I heard that.
[Jimmy:] You’ve been there haven’t ya?
[Alan:] Yes sir!
[Jimmy:] I’ve seen your boat there.
[Alan:] I’ve been to Margaritaville a few times.
[Jimmy:] Alright, that’s good.
[Alan:] Stumbled on my way back.
[Jimmy:] OK, well I just want to make sure you keep it between the navigational beacons.
[Alan:] hahaha! Keep it between the bouys. I got it!
[Jimmy:] Alright, well it’s five o’clock. Let’s go somewhere!
[Alan:] I’m ready. Crank it up!
[Jimmy:] Let’s get out of here!
[Alan:] I’m gone!

Jimmy Buffett Another Saturday Night Lyrics

Another saturday night
By: sam cooke
Chorus:
Another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in an awful way

I got in town a month ago
Ive seen a lot of girls since then
If I could meet em I could get em
But as yet I haven’t met em
That’s why Im in the shape Im in

Chorus:
Oh, another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in an awful way

Now another fella told me
He had a sister who looked just fine
Instead of being my deliverance
She had a strange resemblance
To a cat name frankenstein

Chorus:
Oh, another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had some chick to talk to
Im in an awful way

Chorus:
Yeah, another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in an awful way

Its hard on a fella
When he don’t know his way around
If I don’t find me a honey
To help me spend this money
Im headin back to key west town

Chorus:
Oh, another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in an awful way

Chorus:
Just another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had some chick to talk to
Im in an awful way

— spoken:
Its awful. all dressed up and no place to go. no one to help me spend
My flow. another saturday night. get me the pizza man.
