I get up every day before the--sun,
Ahead of just about every-one,
I'm the early bird and I'm catchin' the worm again,
After puttin' in 12 long--hours,
Even I can smell I need a--shower,
But there's no keepin' me from makin' and meetin' new friends.

Cause there's a little dive bar I can easily do,
A short stumble from here with some ice-y cold brew.
When my work's all done, you know what time it is?
It's time to rock,
It's beer o'clock.

It's easy to get under the im-pression,
There's a pretty damn good se-lection,
Eight or nine domestics and they've even got an import or two.
If you want fancy, this ain't--it,
There's just some old stools and chairs to--sit.
The dance floor's wherever you are when you've got to move.
It's my little dive bar where I can shoot some pool,
I can walk from my place in just a minute or two.
I don't need no watch to know what time it is.
It's time to rock,
It's beer o'clock.

Raise one up for the good times!
Make a toast for all of life's scars!
Forget cute umbrella drinks,
I'm happy with happy hour,
Millers, Buds and PBRs!

We love that little dive bar where nothing's new,
With long necks, darts and that sexy Sue,
You'll always know exactly what time it is.
It's time to rock.
It's beer o'clock.
Let's pop a top,
It's beer o'clock.
C'mon, let's rock,
It's beer o'clock.
