Waitin' On 5

Album: Real Friends (2019)
  • Hit it

    Underneath a car, turning on a wrench
    Out there on a farm fixing that fence
    It's like watching your team
    While you sit on the bench
    Waitin' on 5 to start on 6
    Out in the sun or in the AC
    Two hours left when the hand's at 3
    If you're wanting overtime, well sorry I'm sick
    Waitin' on 5 to start on 6

    Everybody watching that tick tock tick
    The slower it goes, the closer it gets
    We'll be cracking and popping and giving it a twist
    Waitin' on 5 to start on 6
    Hey, hey, alright
    Yeah we're gonna have a little party tonight
    Hey, hey, alright
    Sipping and kissing somebody tonight

    Sunday night comes and I'm getting depressed
    Monday morning blues and my head is a mess
    Friday rolls around and I'm getting that itch
    Waitin' on 5 to start on 6

    Everybody watching that tick tock tick
    The slower it goes, the closer it gets
    We'll be cracking and popping and giving it a twist
    Waitin' on 5 to start on 6, hey

    I'd rather dig in a cooler, man, than dig in a ditch
    I'm sick and damn tired of being somebody's bitch
    I been working all day, 'bout time to quit
    Waitin' on 5 to start on 6

    Everybody watching that tick tock tick
    The slower it goes, the closer it gets
    We'll be cracking and popping and giving it a twister
    Waitin' on 5 to start on 6er
    Waitin' on 5
    Waitin' on 5
    Waitin' on 5 when it's time to quit
    Waitin' on 5
    Waitin' on 5
    Waitin' on 5 to get started on 6

    Everybody watching that tick tock tick
    The slower it goes, the closer it gets
    We'll be cracking and popping and giving it a twist
    Waitin' on 5 to start on 6
    Hey, hey, alright
    Doing our time 'til it's time to quit
    Hey, hey, alright
    Waitin' on 5 to get started on 6
