Lyrics

Alvin:
Tumble outta bed and stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
And yawnin', stretchin', try to come to life

Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the streets, the traffic starts jumpin'
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

The Chipmunks:
Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'
Barely getting 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

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
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me

Alvin:
They let your dream, just watch 'em shatter
You're just a step on the boss man's ladder
But you 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 away

The Chipmunks:
Workin' 9 to 5 what a way to make a livin'
Barely getting 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

9 to 5, they got you where they want you
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
And you spend your life putting money in his wallet

9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'
Barely getting by, it's all takin' and no givin'
They just use you mind and you never get the credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

9 to 5, they got you where they want you
