Nope; “Closing Time” is NOT about Bar Time.

It's not what you think, we guarantee it.

It’s one of the biggest songs of the late ’90s, and one you’ve PROBABLY heard once or twice as the lights are coming on at the end of the night in a crowded bar.  But it has VERY little to do with a bar.

(Well, maybe nine months BEFORE a night at the bar.)

If you never knew, Semisonic’s “Closing Time” is actually about GIVING BIRTH.

So much for screaming this at 2 in the morning, huh!
