9 to 5 by Dolly Parton lyrics

9 to 5 by Dolly Parton

MAN:
Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen

WOMAN:
Pour myself a cup of ambition

ALL:
Yawnin', stretchin', try to come to life

MEN:
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'

WOMEN:
Out on the streets the traffic starts jumpin'

ALL:
And folks like me on the job from nine to five.

ALL:
Workin' nine to five
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

Nine to five
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
I don?t care what you call it
And you spend your life
Puttin' money in his wallet

VIOLET:
My two lives have got me hoppin?
Dawn to midnight there?s no stoppin?
Don?t know which I?m motherin? the most
Pack his lunch and kiss my son
And grab my purse and I keep runnin?
Got so much on my plate, I could choke.

VIOLET W/ ENSEMBLE:
Working Nine to five,
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

MEN:
Nine to Five

WOMEN:
Nine to Five

DORALEE:
They let your 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

DWAYNE:
You?re in the same boat with a lot of your friends
Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in

DORALEE & DWAYNE:
The tide's gonna turn
And it's all gonna roll your way

DORALEE & DWAYNE
Nine to Five (Nine to Five)

DWAYNE:
As long as we?re together
You know

DORALEE and DWAYNE:
You and I

DWAYNE:
Will make it through whatever

DORALEE:
They can?t keep us down
We?ll just rise above it

DORALEE & DWAYNE:
You hold on to me
We?ll tell them where to shove it.

ALL:
Nine to Five you can loose your mind
Get up and work, get up and work
Nine to Five you can loose your mind (Nine to Five)
Workin Nine to Five
Nine to Five you can loose your mind
Nine to Five
It?s enough to drive you crazy
It?s enough to drive you crazy
It?s enough to drive you crazy
It?s enough to drive you
It?s enough
It?s enough
It?s enough
It?s enough to drive you
Get up and work, get up and work
Nine to five
Nine to?

JUDY:
Dreams and plans are in the making (Five)
Success is out there for the taking
Wish it was as simple as it sounds (Simple as it sounds)
I swear to you I?m gonna do it
Grit my teeth and I?ll get through it (ooo)
Its hard to see the upside when you?re down

JUDY W/ ENSEMBLE:
Working Nine to Five
It became necessary
When my husband Dick (Dick)
Left me for his secretary
Never worked before
But somehow I?ve gotta make it
Til I learn the ropes
I guess I just have to fake it.

ALL:
Get up and work get up and work, workin?

VIOLET, DORALEE, JUDY W/ ENSEMBLE:
Nine to Five
So many of us do it
But we know inside
We?re gunna make it through it.
But there?s a brighter day
And we?ll keep looking toward it
And we?ll find that dream
Soon as we can just afford it

Nine to five (Lose your mind/Woah oh oh oh)
Workin? nine to five (Get up and work, get up and work)
Nine to five (Woah oh oh oh)
Workin? Nine to five (Nine to Five)
Nine to five (Lose your mind)
Nine to five

It?s Enough
It?s Enough
It?s Enough

VIOLET:
I deserve a fat promotion

JUDY:
Hard to see the upside (Nine to five)

DORALEE:
Tide?s gunna turn

ALL:
Workin? Nine to Five
Nine to five
