9 To 5
Rewrite of the classic Dolly Parton song

Ain't gonna tumble into your bed
No matter how bad my rent may stumble
Between those sheets
Sex for cash grindin'
Just aint't my ulimate ambition
Groanin'
Yawnin' and strechin'
Just tryin' to find some meaning
To this poor life I've been living

Maybe a pretty, sexy flower
But tonight yours I won't be pumpin'
Sellin' it on the streets
So oh no don't you dare
Start beggin' for my humpin'
Don't want none to do with folks trying to bs me
When I could be respectable
On the the job
From 9 to 5

Workin' 9 to 5
That's how I wanna make my livin'
Quit this barely gettin' by
Done doin' all the talkin
Gettin' none of the givin'
Wanna be wanted for my mind
Not just my fab body
Give a girl some credit
Had enough to almost drive me crazy
But no, I won't let it

Hire me today
And 9 to 5
You can have my service and devotion
No worries
Ain't never gonna ask for an unfair promotion
Just praying I can someday move ahead
Just need a boss to take me
I swear sometimes
All these men want is a naked me

Got a bigger dream
Innocent heart
Won't let you shatter
You're just another step I won't take
Back down that gutter's ladder
Cause I got dreams
You ain't never gonna take away

In the same boat with a lot of my friends
Waitin' for the day
Could it be today?
When my ship comes in
Or yet again will that same ole same ole tide
Come in to sweep me away

Workin' 9 to 5
That's how I wanna make my livin'
Quit this barely gettin' by
Done doin' all the talkin
Gettin' none of the givin'
Wanna be wanted for my mind
Not just my fab body
Give a girl some credit
Had enough to almost drive me crazy
But no, I won't let it

9 to 5
Yeah I'm here
Just waiting to hear from you
Cause I know
There's gotta be a better life
Better then this
For both you and me

Don't wanna play no rich man's sugar daddy game
Just waste my time
So hell no
I won't stroke it

Don't even ask
Just put that dirty money
Right back in your greedy, fat cat wallet

Workin' 9 to 5
That's how I wanna make my livin'
Quit this barely gettin' by
Done doin' all the talkin
Gettin' none of the givin'
Wanna be wanted for my mind
Not just my fab body
Give a girl some credit
Had enough to almost drive me crazy
But no, I won't let it

9 to 5
Yeah I'm here
Just waiting to hear from you
Cause I know
There's gotta be a better life
Better then this
For both you and me

Don't wanna play no rich man's sugar daddy game
Just waste my time
So hell no
I won't stroke it

Don't even ask
Just put that dirty money
Right back in your greedy, fat cat wallet
