[Verse 1] Tumble outta bed And stumble to the kitchen Pour myself a cup of ambition Yawnin' and stretchin' 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 [Hook 1] Working 9 to 5 What a way to make a living Barely gettin' by It's all taking And no giving They just use your mind And they never give you credit It's enough to drive you Crazy if you let it [Verse 2] 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 I swear sometimes that man is out to get me Mmmmm... They let you dream Just to watch them shatter You're just a step On the boss man's ladder But you got dream he'll never take away In the same boat With a lot of your friends Waiting for the day Your ship will come in And the tide's gonna turn An' it's all gonna roll you away [Hook] [Hook 2] 9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you There's a better life And you think about it don't you It's a rich man's game No matter what they call it And you spend your life Putting money in his wallet [Hook] [Hook 2]
