9 to 5 - Dolly Parton

Jump on outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen

Pour myself a cup of ambition

And yawn and stretch and try to come to life

 

Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'

Out on the street the traffic starts jumpin'

With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

 

Workin' 9 to 5, 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

 

9 to 5, for service and devotion

 

You would think

that I would deserve a fat promotion

 

Want to move ahead

 

but the boss won't seem to let me

 

I swear sometimes that man is out to get me!

 

They let you dream just to watch 'em shatter

You're just a step on the boss-man's ladder

But you got dreams he'll never take away

 

You're in the same boat with a lotta your friends

 

Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in

'n' the tide's gonna turn

and it's all gonna roll your way

 

Workin' 9 to 5, 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

 

9 to 5, yeah they got you where they want you

There's a better life,

and you dream about it, don't you?

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

And you spend your life puttin' money in his wallet

 

9 to 5, whoa what a way to make a livin'

'stead-a 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

 

9 to 5, yeah they done got you

where they want you

There's a better life,

 

and you dream about it, don't you?

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