Get up late the birds don't wait for anyone
If your running fast the birds goes past too bad
You get to work you feel a jerk the boss is mad
He says you think we're on go slow
You better get your cards and go go go

Chorus
9 to 5
You gotta break out in the night time
You gotta make a weekend high time
After 9 to 5
After 9 to 5

Got no job you need to earn a bob or two
Cos all your mates in this ain't state as you
Lp's careers can buy your beers and pay your way
Your on the dead end of the street
Trying hard to make ends meet

Chorus
9 to 5
You gotta break out in the night time
You gotta make a weekend high time
After 9 to 5
9 to 5
You gotta break out in the evening
Cos you never did believe in
All that 9 to 5
All that 9 to 5

Clockin' in and clockin' all the office girls
Oh let me take you out tonight Joanne
Will ya lend a fiver Ma I'm broke and I've got a date
She's a cracking bit of stuff
But she don't know when she's had enough

Chorus
9 to 5
You gotta break out in the night time
You gotta make a weekend high time
After 9 to 5
9 to 5
You gotta break out in the evening
Cos you never did believe in
All that 9 to 5
All that 9 to 5
All that 9 to 5
