Allison Janney, Megan Hilty, Charlie Pollock, Stephanie J. Block and Ensemble - Nine To Five Lyrics
Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen,
Pour myself a cup of ambition;
Yawn and stretch and try to come to life.
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin',
Out on the streets the traffic starts jumpin',
For folks like me out on the job from nine to five.

Workin' nine to five, what a way to make a living!
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.
Hoo hoo hoo ooo woo

My two lives have got me hoppin'.
Dawn till midnight, there's no stoppin'.
Never know which I'm mothering the most.
Pack his lunch and kiss my son and
Grab my purse and I keep runnin'.
Got so much on my plate I could choke.

Violet & Ensemble:
Workin' nine to five,
For service and devotion,
You would think that I
would deserve a big 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!

Nine to five...

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

You're in the same boat with a lot of your friends,
Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in.

Doralee & Dwayne:
And the tide's gonna turn,
And it's all gonna roll your way,
Nine to five!

As long as we're together

You know you and I

Will make it through whatever.
They can't keep us down,

We'll just rise above it.

You hold onto me, we'll tell them where to shove it!

Nine to five, you can lose your mind
Get up and work, get up and work,
Nine to five, workin' nine to five...
It's enough to drive you crazy,
Get up and work, nine to five...

Dreams and plans are in the making,
Success is out there for the taking,
Wish it was as simple as it sounds.
I swear to you I'm gonna do it,
Grit my teeth and I'll get through it!
It's hard to see the upside when you're down.

Workin' nine to five, it became necessary
When my husband, Dick,
Left me for his secretary.
Never worked before,
But somehow I've got to make it.
'Til I learn the ropes,
I guess I'll just have to fake it!

Get up and work, get up and work,
Workin' nine to five!

So many of us do it, but we know inside
We're gonna make it through it
Oh there's a brighter day
And we'll keep lookin' t'ward it
And we'll buy that dream soon as we can just afford it

Nine to five, you can lose your mind...
It's enough, it's enough, it's enough

I deserve a big fat promotion

It's hard to the see the upside

The tide's gonna turn!

Workin' nine to five!
Nine to five!
