It's Martini Time Lyrics


Hey, buddy do you got the time?
No I don't got a watch can you spare a dime,
But I got two olives and a couple of limes,
Guessin' that means It's Martini Time.

The Martinis that brought you the loss,
I didn't even ask or care what they cost,
I lost my job for no reason or rhyme,
Guessin' 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 know what I mean,
When you're out with a babe you don't nickel or dime,
Guessin' 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.

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.

It's martini time
It's martini time
It's Martini Time
  • The title cut from the band's 1996 Interscope Records album, it marked a change in producers for the band. Previously using Ministry's Al Jourgensen on their 1994 album Liquor in the Front, the band brought in producer Thorn Panunzio, who had previously worked for John Lennon and U2. Panunzio's influence brought a sound that was less abrasive from previous albums. The finished work was smoother and injected more humor. He also got the band using sound loops for the first time.

  • This breezy dance tune reflects a dialogue between two characters. The simple universal question, "Hey, buddy do you got the time?" spawns an exchange between the two. It invokes job loss and being down and out and how a martini is the answer. Must be serious, "I live my life for a layer of ice."

  • The background vocals by Jimbo Wallace attempt to lighten the mood. As Reverend Horton sings the chorus "martini time" three times, Wallace shouts right behind The Rev as if prohibition has just been repealed: "vodka ice shaker! olive or lime! gotta have glasses!" You can drift back in time to when movies were black and white and folks danced the jitterbug.
