Five Minutes Till Midnight

Bus is belching out black smoke
Cabbie stops 'neath the street light
Drunks gonna tell one more joke
It's five minutes till midnight

Jay ain't never been funny
He just can't get it tight
I sure do miss ol' Johnny
It's five minutes till midnight

(chorus)
It's five minutes till midnight
Where are you why do you hide?
It's five minutes till midnight
Ain't it enough just being alive

I got this ticket for salvation
All it cost me was my life
You talk about your inflation
It's five minutes till midnight

Give me a slow train back to Georgia
You know it's always on my mind
Just give me one more chance to fool ya
It's five minutes till midnight

(chorus)

Bus is belching out black smoke
Cabbie stops 'neath the street light
I'm gonna take just one more toke
It's five minutes till midnight
