Happy Hour

Album: Pacific Daydream (2017)

  • I'm like Stevie Ray Vaughn on the stage
    High on music
    Teeth grinding
    Sweating under the lights
    But then my boss calls and she's crushing me with a twenty-ton weight
    Just like in Monty Python
    Somebody left on the sink, it's still running
    My eyes are gonna overflow (happy hour)

    I need happy hour on sad days (on sad days)
    I need happy hour I can't wait (can't wait)

    I'm like Ponce de Leon Sailing on a ship for the new world
    Checking out the birds and flowers
    Let's chill out on this island, I've been sucking on a lime and coconut (coconut, coconut, coconut)
    I think I could stay here for the rest of my life
    Please don't ever make me go home

    I need happy hour on sad days (on sad days)
    It's my happy hour I can't wait (can't wait)

    Maybe I'll meet a scientist in sweatpants and a hair tie
    We'll conversate about ghetto birds and midi keyboards
    Then we'll slow dance
    Head on my shoulder
    Swaying back and forth and
    My friends look on and smile
    Everything gonna be alright

    It's my happy hour on sad days (on sad days)
    I need happy hour, I can't wait (can't wait)
    I need happy hour to save me
    I need happy hour, I can't wait Writer/s: Christopher Bradley Sernel, Rivers Cuomo, Sean P. Bowe
