JIVE AFTER FIVE (Carl Perkins) Carl Perkins Guitar intro I work all day as a soda jerk On my feet all the time and oh man, how they hurt Don't make much, but I sure get the news I don't have much time for gettin' the blues My friends drop in for sodas and pop There'll all talking, friends, about a new record hop All day long I'm a-fillin' orders Takin' in nickels, dimes and quarters Cherry sodas and a chocolate shake Strawberry sundaes and a lemon phosphate Time to clean the fountain, 'cause it's almost five You know me dad, after five I jive I wanna jive, ah-ah-ah, I wanna jive Ooh-ooh-ooh, I wanna jive, yes, after five Oh-oh-oh, I wanna jive, man alive, after five Well, I mop the floor and I wipe the counter I just work here dad, I'm not the founder I keep a-workin' and a-watchin' the clock A-peepin' out the window for my baby to stop We'll head out of town to a little night dive Because you know me dad, after five I jive All day long I'm a-fillin' orders Takin' in nickels, dimes and quarters Cherry cokes and tall root beer A coat of vanilla with a chocolate smear Time to clean the fountain, 'cause it's almost five You know me dad, after five I jive I wanna jive, I wanna jive Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, and then we jive Yeah, I wanna jive, yes, man alive Come on now cat, let's jive Everybody rock, I wanna jive Ah-ah-ah, I wanna jive Ooh-ooh-ooh, I wanna jive Yes, I wanna jive Man alive, I wanna jive Jive, jive after five (Contributed by Claude Lemasson - May 2006)
