Working 9 to 5 What a way to make a livin' Barely getting 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 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 bossman's ladder But you got dreams He'll never take away You're in the same boat With a lotta your friends Waiting for the day Your ship'll come in And the tide's gonna turn And it's all gonna roll your way Working 9 to 5 What a way to make a living Barely getting by It's all taking and no giving 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 Putting money in his wallet 9 To 5, whoa What a way to make a living Barely getting 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 9 To 5, yeah, they done 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 Putting money in his wallet
