9 To 5

Original songwriter: Dolly Parton

Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen pour myself a cup of ambition and yawn and stretch try to come to life

Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin' out on the streets the traffic starts jumpin' and folks like me on the job from nine to five

Workin' nine to five what a way to make a livin'

Barely gettin' by it's all takin' and no givin'

They just use your mind and they never give you credit it's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

Nine to five for service and devotion

You would think that I would deserve a fair promotion

Want to move ahead but the boss won't seem to let me

I swear sometimes that man is out to get me ooh

They let you dream just to watch 'em shatter you're just a step on the boss-man's ladder but you've got dreams he'll never take away

In the same boat with a lot of your friends waitin' for the day your ship'll come in and the tides gonna turn an it's all gonna roll you away

Workin' nine to five what a way to make a livin'

Barely gettin' by it's all takin' and no givin'

They just use your mind and you never get the credit

It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

Nine to five yeah they got you where they want you

There's a better life and you think about it, don't you?

It's a rich man's game no matter what they call it

And you spend your life putting money in his wallet

Nine to five oh what a way to make a livin'

Barely gettin' by it's all takin' and no givin'

They just use your mind and they never give you credit

It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

Nine to five yeah, they got you where they want you

There's a better life an' you think about it don't you

It's a rich man's game no matter what they call it

And you spend your life putting money in his wallet

Nine to five, ooh workin' nine to five said workin' nine to five

Why am I workin' anyway?

Workin' nine to five
