  • Eight years old a couple cane poles sitting down by the creek
    Our lines in the water watching those bobbers seeing that red sun sink
    Mama's on the porch yelling supper's hot, y'all come and get it
    We yelled five more minutes

    At sixteen it was twelve o three standing at her front door
    Katie's dad said midnight, but we needed just a little more
    Yellow light flipping on and off, interrupting that goodnight kissing
    We wanted five more minutes

    Time rolls by the clock don't stop
    I wish I had a few more drops
    Of the good stuff, the good times
    Oh but they just keep on flying
    Right on by like it ain't nothing
    Wish I had me a pause button
    Moments like those Lord knows I'd hit it
    And give myself five more minutes

    At eighteen turned my helmet in and walked to the fifty yard line
    Just the coach and me after we lost eighteen to nine
    And I cried man next time to get in here I'll have to buy a ticket
    Can't you give me five more minutes

    Time rolls by the clock don't stop
    I wish I had a few more drops
    Of the good stuff, the good times
    Oh but they just keep on flying
    Right on by like it ain't nothing
    Wish I had me a pause button
    Moments like those Lord knows I'd hit it
    And give myself five more minutes

    At eighty-six my grandpa said there's angels in the room
    All the family gathered 'round knew the time was coming soon
    With so much left to say I prayed Lord I ain't finished
    Just give us five more minutes

    Time rolls by the clock don't stop
    I wish I had a few more drops
    Of the good stuff, the good times
    Oh but they just keep on flying
    Right on by like it ain't nothing
    Wish I had me a pause button
    Moments like those Lord knows I'd hit it
    Yeah sometimes this old life will leave you wishing
    That you had five more minutes
