Crossword Genius

Go out second to get the French record (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sleep

Here is my best explanation:

'go out' is the definition.

'second to get the french record' is the wordplay.
'second' becomes 's' (common abbreviation**).
'to get' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'the french' becomes 'le'.
'record' becomes 'ep'.
's'+'le'+'ep'='SLEEP'
