Drinks After Work

Album: Drinks After Work (2013)
  • Talk on the phone, stare at the screen
    Doin' the job, livin' the dream
    Gettin' paid, yeah right
    Thinkin' about what I'll say to prove
    That we should go out for a laugh or two
    Instead of going home tonight

    Been a long day, no break
    We made it to the middle of the week
    And I'm thinking that I'm probably gonna need
    To get to know you casually
    Just having fun, two for one
    Watch a good time get a little better
    Ain't no ball and chain for the suits and skirts
    Just drinks after work
    Drinks after work
    Tell me what's it gonna hurt
    To have a little drink after work?

    Happy hour's like a holiday
    Hanging with you's like getting away
    Let's conversate for a little while
    Well, keep me company, catch me up
    It's a whole lot better than being stuck
    In a drive-time 9 to 5, I'd rather see you smile

    Long day, no break
    We made it to the middle of the week
    And I'm thinking that I'm probably gonna need
    To get to know you casually
    Just having fun, two for one
    Watch a good time get a little better
    Ain't no ball and chain for the suits and skirts
    Just drinks after work
    Drinks after work
    Tell me what's it gonna hurt
    To have a little drink after work?

    Been a long day and the boss don't get it
    Don't you wanna take the edge off with some 7 and 7?
    Just crushin' on a friend, tell me what's it gonna hurt
    Sippin' and tippin' some drinks after work?

    Long day, no break
    We made it to the middle of the week
    And I'm thinking that I'm probably gonna need
    To get to know you casually
    Just having fun, two for one
    Watch a good time get a little better
    Ain't no ball and chain for the suits and skirts
    Just drinks after work
    Drinks after work
    Tell me what's it gonna hurt
    To have a little drink after work?

    Long day, no break
    Tell me what's it gonna hurt
    To have a little drink after work?
