Dolly Parton – 9 To 5 lyrics
Tumble outta bed
And 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 streets
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
Its 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 wont seem to let me in,
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me
Mmmmm...

They let you dream
Just to watch 'em shatter,
Youre just a step
On the boss mans a ladder,
But you got dreams hell 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
And it's all gonna roll your way,

2nd chorus:

Workin 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin,
Barely gettin by
Its all takin
And no givin,
They just use your mind
And you 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 I would daunt you,
Its a rich mans game
No matter what they call it,
And you spend your life
Puttin' money in his wallet,

3rd chorus:

Workin 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin,
Barely gettin by
Its all takin
And no givin,
They just use you mind
And they never give you credit,
Its enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it,

Fade:

9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you,
There's a better life
And you dream about it don't you,
Its a rich mans game
No matter what they call it,
And you spend your life
Puttin' money in his wallet,
