"9 to 5" is the title of a Grammy-winning, number-one song written and originally performed by Dolly Parton for the 1980 film comedy Nine to Five, starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Parton in her film debut.

The film's title song garnered Parton an Academy Award nomination and four Grammy Award nominations, winning her the awards for "Best Country Song" and "Best Country Vocal Performance, Female". In addition to appearing on the film soundtrack, the song was the centerpiece of Parton's 9 to 5 and Odd Jobs album, released in late 1980. The song was released as a single in November 1980 and reached number one on both the Billboard Country Chart and the Billboard Hot 100 in January and February of 1981, respectively. For a time, the song became something of an anthem for office workers in the U.S., and as recently as 2004 Parton's song ranked number seventy-eight on American Film Institute's "100 years, 100 songs".

Lyrics: Tumble outta bed And stumble to the kitchen Pour myself a cup of ambition Yawnin, stretchin, try to come to life Jump in the shower And the blood starts pumpin Out on the streets The traffic starts jumpin And folks like me on the job from 9 to 5 Chorus:

Workin 9 to 5 What a way to make a livin Barely gettin by Its all takin And no givin They just use your mind And they never give you credit Its 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 wont seem to let me in I swear sometimes that man is out to get me Mmmmm...

They let your dream Just a watch em shatter Youre just a step On the boss mans a ladder But you got dream hell never take away

On the same boat With a lot of your friends Waitin for the day Your shipll come in And the tides gonna turn An it's all gonna roll you away

2nd chorus:

Workin 9 to 5 What a way to make a livin Barely gettin by Its all takin And no givin They just use your mind And you never get the credit Its enough to drive you Crazy if you let it

9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you There's a better life And you think that I would daunt you Its a rich mans game No matter what they call it And you spend your life Puttin money in his wollet

3rd chorus:

Workin 9 to 5 What a way to make a livin Barely gettin by Its all takin And no givin They just use you mind And they never give you credit Its enough to drive you Crazy if you let it

Fade:

9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you There's a better life And you dream that I would daunt you Its a rich mans game No matter what they call it And you spend your life Puttin money in his wollet
