[Verse]

Tumble outta bed and a’stumble to the kitchen

Pour myself a cup of ambition

And yawn n’ stretch n’ and try to come to life


[Verse]
D
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin’
G
Out on the streets the traffic starts jumpin’
     D                    A         D
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5


[Chorus]
        G
Workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’
      D
Barely gettin’ by, it’s all takin’ and no givin’
          G
They just use your mind, and they never give you credit
     E                   A
It’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it
G
9 to 5, for service and devotion

You would think that I would deserve a fair promotion

Want to move ahead but the boss won’t seem to let me
  E                          A              D
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me

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


[Chorus]
        G
Workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’
      D
Barely gettin’ by, it’s all takin’ and no givin’

They just use your mind, and you never get the credit

It’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it
G
9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you
         D
There’s a better life, and you think about it don’t you
       G
It’s a rich man’s game, no matter what they call it
         E                      A
And you spend your life putting money in his wallet


[Chorus]
G
9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’
      D
Barely gettin’ by, it’s all takin’ and no givin’
          G
They just use you mind, and they never give you credit

It’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it
G
9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you
          D
There’s a better life, and you dream about it don’t you
       G
It's a rich man’s game, no matter what they call it
