Nine to five

Song Author Dolly Parton Lyrics by: Dolly Parton Performer: Dolly Parton Submitted by: Karlinn
Intró: [F#] (4 taktar)

[F#]Tumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen;
[B]pour myself a cup of ambition,
[F#]and yawn, and stretch, and try to come to [C#]life.
[F#]Jump in the shower, and the blood starts pumping;
[B]out on the street, the traffic starts jumping,
with [F#]folks like me on the [C#]job from nine to [F#]five.


Working [B]nine to five, what a way to make a living;
barely [F#]getting by, it's all taking and no giving.
They just [B]use your mind, and they never give you credit;
it's e[G#]nough to drive you [C#7]crazy, if you let it. [F#]    

[B]Nine to five, for service and devotion;
you would [F#]think that I would deserve a fair promotion;
want to [B]move ahead, but the boss won't seem to let me.
I [G#]swear sometimes, that [C#7]man is out to get me. [F#]    


[F#]They let you dream just to watch them shatter;
[B]You're just a step on the boss man's ladder,
But [F#]you've got dreams he'll never take a[C#]way.   
[F#]In the same boat with a lot of your friends;
[B]Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in,
And the [F#]tide's gonna turn, and it's [C#]all gonna roll your [F#]way.   


Working [B]nine to five, what a way to make a living;
barely [F#]getting by, it's all taking and no giving.
They just [B]use your mind, and they never give you credit;
it's en[G#]ough to drive you [C#7]crazy, if you let it. [F#]    

[B]Nine to five, they've got you where they want you;
There's a [F#]better life, and you dream about it, don't you?
It's a [B]rich man's game, no matter what they call it;
And you [G#]spend your life putting [C#7]money in his pocket. [F#]    

Working [B]nine to five, what a way to make a living;
barely [F#]getting by, it's all taking and no giving.
They just [B]use your mind, and they never give you credit;
it's en[G#]ough to drive you [C#7]crazy, if you let it. [F#]    

[B]Nine to five, they've got you where they want you;
There's a [F#]better life, and you dream about it, don't you?
It's a [B]rich man's game, no matter what they call it;
And you [G#]spend your life putting [C#7]money in his pocket. [F#]    


[B]Nine to five ....

Tumble out of bed and 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 pumping;
out on the street, the traffic starts jumping,
with folks like me on the job from nine to five.

Working nine to five, what a way to make a living;
barely getting by, it's all taking and no giving.
They just use your mind, and they never give you credit;
it's enough to drive you crazy, if you let it.

Nine to five, 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.
I swear sometimes, that man is out to get me.

They let you dream just to watch them shatter;
You're just a step on the boss man's ladder,
But you've got dreams he'll never take away.
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.

Working nine to five, what a way to make a living;
barely getting by, it's all taking and no giving.
They just use your mind, and they never give you credit;
it's enough to drive you crazy, if you let it.

Nine to five, they've 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 putting money in his pocket.

Working nine to five, what a way to make a living;
barely getting by, it's all taking and no giving.
They just use your mind, and they never give you credit;
it's enough to drive you crazy, if you let it.

Nine to five, they've 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 putting money in his pocket.

Nine to five ....
