Take 5

"Take Five" is a jazz standard composed by saxophonist Paul Desmond and originally recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet for their album, Time Out in 1959. Two years later it became a surprise hit and the biggest-selling jazz single ever. Revived since in numerous movie and television soundtracks, the piece still receives significant radio airplay. The single was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1996.

Won't you stop and take 
A little time out with me 
Just take five 
Stop your busy day 
And take the time out 
To see if I'm alive 
Though I'm going out of my way 
Just so I can pass by each day 
Not a single word do we say 
It's a pantomime and not a play 
Still, I know our eyes often meet 
I feel tingles down to my feet 
When you smile, that's much too discreet 
Sends me on my way 
Wouldn't it be better 
Not to be so polite 
You could offer a light 
Start a little conversation now 
It's alright, just take five 
Just take five
