Lyrics

Hey buddy do you got the time?
No I don't got a watch, can you spare a dime?
No, but I got two olives and a couple of limes.
Guess what that means---it's martini time.

(Hiccup)

Tee Martoonis that brought you the loss.
I didn't even ask or care what they cost.
I lost my job for no reason or rhyme.
Guess what that means---it's martini time.

Martini time!
(Vodka ice shaker!)
Martini time!
(Olive or lime!)
Martini time!
(Gotta have glasses!)
Make it with a layer of ice this time.

Dirty, dry up, or in between.
From the very first sip you'll know what I mean.
When you're out with a babe you don't nickel or dime.
Guess what that means---it's martini time.

Martini time
(Vodka ice shaker!)
Martini time
(Olive or lime!)
Martini time
(Gotta have glasses!)
Make it with a layer of ice this time.

(Hiccup!)
Solo

It's martini time!

I live my life for a layer of ice.
Just like those poured by my bartender vice.
Any taste of Vermouth would be really sublime.
When you have a good martini time!

It's Martini time
(Vodka ice shaker!)
Martini time
(Olive or lime!)
Martini time
(Gotta have glasses!)
Perfectly poured and top of the line.

(Hiccup!)

It's martini time!
