9 to 5
Dolly Parton

Verse 1: (Altos)                                                                      TAB: Dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum
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'
The folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Chorus 1:
Workin' 9 to 5,  (oooo)
What a way to make a livin'  (It's a livin')
Barely gettin' by (oooo)
It's all takin' and no givin' (It's no givin')
They just use your mind
And they never give you credit
No - , No - , No - ,  It's enough to drive you crazy
 If you let it

9 to 5,  (oooo)
for service and devotion (It's devotion)
You would think that I (oooo)
Would deserve a fat promotion (Fat promotion)
Want to move ahead (oooo)
But the boss won't seem to let me
No - , No - , No - ,  (I swear sometimes that man is out to get me)

Verse 2: (Altos)                                                                 TAB: Dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum
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
'N' the tide's gonna turn
And it's all gonna roll your way

Chorus 2:
Workin' 9 to 5,  (oooo)
What a way to make a livin'  (It's a livin')
Barely gettin' by (oooo)
It's all takin' and no givin' (It's no givin')
They just use your mind
And they never give you credit
No - , No - , No - ,  It's enough to drive you crazy
 If you let it

9 to 5, yeah (oooo)
They got you where they want you (Yeah they got you)
There's a better life (oooo)
And you think about it, don't you (Oh yeah don't you)
It's a rich man's game (oooo)
No matter what they call it
No - , No - , No - ,  (And you spend your life puttin' money in his wallet)
