Scotty McCreery – Five More Minutes lyrics

Eight years old,
A couple cane poles
Sittin’ down by the creek
Our lines in the water
Watchin’ those bobbers
Seein’ that red sun sink
Mama’s on the porch yellin’, “Supper’s hot,
“Y’all, come and get it”
We yelled, “Five more minutes”

Sixteen, it was 12: 03
Standin’ at her front door
Katie’s dad said midnight
But we needed just a little more
Yellow light flippin’ on and off
Interruptin’ that goodnight kissin’
We wanted five more minutes

Time rolls by, the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh, but they just keep on flyin’
Right on by like it ain’t nothin’
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those, Lord knows I’d hit it
And give myself five more minutes

At eighteen, turned my helmet in
And walked to the fifty yard line
It’s just the coach and me
After we lost eighteen to nine
And I cried, “Man, next time to get in here,
“I’ll have to buy a ticket
“Can’t ya give me five more minutes”

Time rolls by, the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh, but they just keep on flyin’
Right on by like it ain’t nothin’
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those, Lord knows I’d hit it
And give myself five more minutes

In ’86, my grandpa said,
“There’s angels in the room”
All the family gathered ’round
Knew the time was comin’ soon
With so much to say, I prayed,
“Lord, I ain’t finished
“Just give us five more minutes”

Time rolls by, the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh, but they just keep on flyin’
Right on by like it ain’t nothin’
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those, Lord knows I’d hit it
Yeah, sometimes, this ole life will leave you wishin’
That you had five more minutes

Five more minutes
