Alison Krauss – 9 To 5 Lyrics

I tumble out of bed and i stumble to the kitchen

pour myself a cup of ambition

and yawn and stretch ,trying to come to life

i jump in the shower and the blood starts pumping

out on the streets the traffic starts jumping

with folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

(chours)

workin 9 to 5,what a way to make a livin

barley 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

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

you’re in the same boat with a lot of your friends

waiting for the day your ship’ll come in

the tide’s gonna turn and it’s all gonna roll you away

(repeat chours)
