Five O Clock World chords
The Vogues

E        D               E      D
Up every morning just to keep a job
        E        D               E        D
I gotta fight my way through the hustling mob
E             D             E     D
Sounds of the city pounding in my brain
       E          D             E
While another day goes down the drain

          A            D              A       D  
But its a five o clock world when the whistle blows
A             D           A   D
No one owns a piece of my time
              A            D    A       D
And there s a five o clock me inside my clothes
A                             B
Thinking that the world looks fine, yeah

E          D            E     D
Trading my time for the pay I get
E         D            E          D
Living on money that I ain t made yet
E            D      E       D
I m going to try to make my way
        E            D          E
While I live for the end of the day

          A            D              A       D
Cuz its a five o clock world when the whistle blows
A             D           A     D
No one owns a piece of my time, and
          A           D        A        D
There s a long haired girl who waits, I know
A                   B
To ease my troubled mind, yeah

E     D     E   D E  D E 
oh my lady, yeah
E     D     E   D E  D E  D
oh my lady, yeah

       E              D         E        D
In the shelter of her arms everything s OK
         E              D          E         D
When she talks then the world goes slipping away
      E        D            E        D
And I know the reason I can still go on
     E           D         E
When every other reason is gone

      A            D         A         D
In my five o clock world she waits for me
A            D          A   D
Nothing else matters at all
    A             D    A         D
Cuz every time my baby smiles at me
  A                         B                  
I know that s it s all worthwhile

E     D     E   D E  D E 
oh my lady, yeah    3x
