Tumble outta bed and a`stumble to the kitchen
BB chord
Pour myself a cup of ambition
GbGb chord                                         DbDb chord
And yawn n` stretch n` and try to come to life


GbGb chord
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin`
BB chord
Out on the streets the traffic starts jumpin`
     GbGb chord                    DbDb chord             GbGb chord 
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Chorus:
        BB chord
Workin` 9 to 5 - what a way to make a livin`
       GbGb chord
Barely gettin` by - it`s all takin` and no givin`
          BB chord
They just use your mind - and they never give you credit
     AbAb chord                  DbDb chord
It`s enough to drive you crazy if you let it


BB chord
9 to 5 - for service and devotion
          GbGb chord
You would think that I would deserve a fair promotion
       BB chord
Want to move ahead but the boss won`t seem to let me

I swear sometimes that man is out to get me mmmmmmm

Verse:
GbGb chord
They let you dream just to watch `em shatter
       BB chord
You`re just a step on the boss man`s ladder
    GbGb chord                                DbDb chord
But you got dreams he`ll never take away


GbGb chord
In the same boat with a lot of your friends
BB chord
Waitin` for the day your ship`ll come in
        GbGb chord                          DbDb chord                   GbGb chord
And the tide`s gonna turn an` it`s all gonna roll your way

Chorus:
        BB chord
Workin` 9 to 5 - what a way to make a livin`
      GbGb chord
Barely gettin` by - it`s all takin` and no givin`
         BB chord
They just use your mind - and you never get the credit
     AbAb chord                  DbDb chord
It`s enough to drive you crazy if you let it

9 to 5, yeah - they got you where they want you
         GbGb chord
There`s a better life - and you think about it don`t you

It`s a rich man`s game - no matter what they call it
