Nine To Five
By Dolly Parton
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
rmofle at

Tumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
    G                                   D
And yawn and stretch and try to come to life
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpiní
Out in the street the traffic starts jumpiní
     G                    D             G 
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Chorus 1, 3 & 5
Workiní 9-5 what a way to make a liviní
Barely gettingí by, itís all taking and no giving
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
     A7                  D
Itís enough to drive you crazy if you let it

They let you dream just to watch them shatter
But youíre just a step on the bossmanís ladder
But youíve got dreams heíll never take away
In the same boat with a lot of your friends
Waitiní that day for your ship to come in
And the tides gonna turn and itís all gonna roll your way

Chorus 2
Nine to five, for service and devotion
You would think that I would deserve a fat promotion
Want to move ahead but the boss wonít seem to let me
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me

Chorus 4 & 6
Nine to five they got you where they want you
Thereís a better life and you dream about it donít you
Itís a rich manís game, no matter what they call it
And you spend your life puttiní money in his pocket
