Nine To Five

 

Nine To Five Song Lyrics


Ensemble:
Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen,
Pour myself a cup of ambition;
Yawn and stretch and try to come to life.
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin',
Out on the streets the traffic starts jumpin',
For folks like me out on the job from nine to five.
Workin' nine to five, what a way to make a living!
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.
Hoo hoo hoo ooo woo
Violet:
My two lives have got me hoppin'.
Dawn till midnight, there's no stoppin'.
Don't know which I'm mothering 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 & Ensemble:
Workin' 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!
Ensemble:
Nine to five...
Doralee:
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!
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,
Nine to five!
Dwayne:
As long as we're together
You know
Both:
You and I
Dwayne:
Will make it through whatever.
Doralee:
They can't keep us down,
We'll just rise above it.
Both:
You hold onto me, we'll tell them where to shove it!
Ensemble:
Nine to five, you can lose your mind
Get up and work, get up and work,
Nine to five, you can lose your mind
Workin' nine to five
Nine to five, you can lose 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
Get up and work,
Get up and work, nine to five
Nine to five...
Judy:
Dreams and plans are in the making,
Success is out there for the taking,
Wish it was as simple as it sounds.
I swear to you I'm gonna do it,
Grit my teeth and I'll get through it!
It's hard to see the upside when you're down.
Workin' nine to five, became necessary
When my husband, Dick,
Left me for his secretary.
Never worked before,
But somehow I've got to make it.
'Til I learn the ropes,
I guess I'll just have to fake it!
Ensemble:
Get up and work, get up and work,
Workin' nine to five!
Violet, Judy, Doralee:
So many of us do it,
All:
But we know inside
We're gonna make it through it
Oh there's a brighter day
And we'll keep lookin' t'ward it
And we'll buy that dream soon as we can just afford it
Judy, Violet, Doralee:
Nine to Five, workin' nine to five
Nine to five, workin' nine to five
Nine to five...
Ensemble:
Nine to five, you can lose your mind,
Get up and work!
Get up and work!
Nine to five you can lose your mind,
Working nine to five!
Nine to five you can lose your mind,
All:
Nine to five!
Ensemble:
It's enough, it's enough, it's enough
Violet:
I deserve a fat promotion
Doralee and Judy:
Tide's gonna turn!
All:
Workin' nine to five!
Nine to five!
