9 to 5 (FROM THE STILL WORKING 9 TO 5 DOCUMENTARY) Lyrics – Kelly Clarkson

(9 to 5)

Tumble out of 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’s jumpin’
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5 (Hmm, yeah)

Workin’ 9 to 5, 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 (If you let it)
Workin’ 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 (He’s out to get me)

9 to 5 (9 to 5)
9 to 5 (Workin’, workin’, workin’)
(9 to 5)

They let you dream just to watch ’em shatter
You’re just a step on the boss man’s ladder
But you’ve got dreams he’ll never take away (He’ll never take ’em away)
You’re in the same boat with a lot of your friends
Waitin’ for the day your ship’ll come in
And the tide’s gonna turn and it’s all gonna roll your way

Workin’ 9 to 5, 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 (But you won’t let it)
Workin’ 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 puttin’ money in his wallet (Puttin’ money in his wallet)
Workin’ 9 to 5, 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 (Crazy if you let it)
Workin’ 9 to 5, workin’ 9 to 5
It’s a rich man’s game no matter what they call it
And you spend your life puttin’ money in his wallet (Puttin’ money in his wallet)

(9 to 5) Just workin’, workin’, workin’
(9 to 5) Just workin’, workin’, workin’
(9 to 5) And you think about it, don’t you? (9 to 5)
Yeah, you think about it, don’t you? (9 to 5)
