I'm staring at the clock,
I'm wondering why I'm still here.
And my head's about to pop,
I'm thinking that you best stay clear.

Oh, how did I get stuck in this predicament, I don't know.
I want to throw this repetition out the window.
I'm gettin' tired, of wondering why I'm still here.

And I wish that I could,
Snap my fingers, make myself disappear.
Snap my fingers, get myself out of here.
Snap my fingers, snap my fingers. Oh, oh.

'Cause I'd rather be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
I'd rather be, anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
I could be catching a wave,
I could be seeing the world.
I could be riding with the top down, kissing my girl.
I could be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.

The sun is coming up, don't wanna get out of bed
Well here we go again, I'm back to where I began.
Oh, you can take my checkbook,
Credit cards and keep 'em.
I'd give 'em up just for a little bit of freedom.
And my escape, I'm planning it in my head.

And I wish that I could,
Snap my fingers, make myself disappear.
Snap my fingers, get myself out of here.
Snap my fingers, snap my fingers. Oh, oh.

'Cause I'd rather be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
I'd rather be, anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
I could be sippin' a drink,
I could be gettin' a tan.
I could be hanging on the beach,
With my toes in the sand.
I could be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.

No more bus stops, sittin' in traffic.
Wakin' up at 6 in the morning, ain't gonna happen.
No more office, no more line-ups.
You can just forget about it, we want freedom.
We want, we want, we want,
We want freedom.
We want, we want, we want.

And I'd rather be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
I'd rather be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
I'd rather be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
I'd rather be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here,

I could be catching a wave,
I could be seeing the world.
I could be riding with the top down, kissing my girl.
I could be slipping it in,
I could be living it up.
I could be sitting at home not giving a fuck!

Could be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
I'd rather be anywhere else, anywhere else,
Anywhere else but here.
Anywhere else but here.
Anywhere else but here.
