Description
Short Song Description:
An anthem for cutting loose after working hard.
Long Song Description:
This is the 2006 version of a song actually written over 20 years earlier. It is a little bit Delbert McClinton, a little bit Dr. John...relating to the working people who live for the end of their work week.
Story Behind the Song:
As a musician, I've still had to work more than my share of "day gigs", especially when I got "domesticated". Being part of the Monday-through-Friday work force made me appreciate how good it felt when the weekend rolled around--hence this song!

You know it's time to party.
I said it's time for fun.
You know it's for everybody, so come on everyone.
You know it's time for good times,
And everybody's hot,
I said it's time to party, so let's all give it everything we got.

Now all day at the job we been workin' hard,
And each of us needs some kind of release.
When we're finally out we all can drop our guards,
And have the kind of time we wish would never cease.
I said it's time,
You know it's time,
Well, ain't no crime to have a good time,
Come on, come on, come on!

Time to party.
You know it's time for fun.
I said it's for everybody, so come on everyone.
You know it's time for good times,
And everybody's hot,
I said it's time to party, so let's all give it everything we got.

No one wants to be a workin' stiff all the time,
'Cause work without play makes a dull boy.
Don't let anybody tell you fun is a sin,
'Cause they don?t know the meaning of joy.
I said it's time,
You know it's time,
Well, ain't no crime to have a good time,
Come on, come on, come on!

You know it's time to party.
I said it's time for fun.
You know it's for everybody, so come on everyone.
I said it's time for good times,
And everybody's hot,
You know it's time to party, so let's all give it everything we got.
