INTRO: A

#1.
A
I work all day as a soda jerk..on my feet all the time 

and oh, man, how they hurt.
D                                           A
Don't make much, but I sure get the news..I don't have 

much time for gettin' the blues.
D                                             A
My friends drop in for sodas and pop, they're all talking, 

fancy about a new record hop.

#2.
D                                  A
All day long I'm a-fillin' orders..takin' in nickels, dimes 

and quarters.
D                                   A
Cherry sodas and a chocolate shake, strawberry sundaes and a 

lemon phosphate.
E                                                    A
Time to clean the fountain, 'cause it's almost five..you know me, 

dad, after five I jive.

CHORUS:
A
I wanna jive, uh-huh-huh-huh, I wanna jive..ooo-hooo-hooo-hooo, 
        D                A
I wanna jive, yes, after five.
                      E                      A
uh-huh-ho-ho, I wanna jive, man alive, after five.

#3.
A
Well, I mop the floor and I wipe the counter..I just work here dad, 

I'm not the founder.
  D                                          A
I keep a-workin' and a-watchin' the clock..a-peepin' out the window 

for my baby to stop.
      E                                                    A
We'll head out of town to a little night dive..because you know me dad, 

after five I jive.

#4.
A                                                     A7
All day long I'm a-fillin' orders..takin' in nickels, dimes and quarters.
D                                    A
Cherry cokes and a tall root beer, a cone of vanilla with a chocolate spill.
E                                                        A
Time to clean the fountain, 'cause it's almost five..you know me dad, after 

five I jive..I wanna jive.

CHORUS:
A
I wanna jive, I wanna jive, ooo-hooo-hooo and then I jive.
              E              A
Yeah, I wanna jive, yes, man alive..come on, now, cat, let's jive.
A                                                                          D                    
Everybody rock, I wanna jive..ah-ah-ah, I wanna jive..ooh-ooh-ooh, I wanna jive.
             A         E                                     A
Yes, I wanna jive, man alive, I wanna jive, Jive, jive after five.
