Tumble outta bed
And stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition and
Yawnin’ stretchin’ 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 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
Its enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it
9 to 5
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 in
I swear sometimes
That man is out to get me
Ooh
They let your dream
Just a watch’em shattered
You’re just a step
On the boss man’s ladder
But you got dreams
He’ll never take away
On 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’ 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 get the credit
Its 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 think that while they daunt you
It’s a rich mans game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Puttin’ money in his wallet
9 to 5 wooh
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
Its 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
