    Lyrics

    Tumble 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
    an' 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'
    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, 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
