June 9th, 2014

Everybody’s always watching the clock and waiting for Friday to come around so that they can enjoy a good drink. But the singers wonder ‘why wait’ just enjoy some “Day Drinking” and “Blame it on the work day/Blame it on the heatwave/Blame it on the tick-tock moving too slow/Blame it on any old thing you want to."
