Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Allemande left that corner go, come back one and dosado
The men star left go once around
Pick her up with an arm around, star promenade that town
And the girls backtrack two times around
Workin' 9 to 5
Meet your girl and then you turn thru
Left allemande and you promenade her too
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four little ladies chain across, turn that girl and you don't get lost
Chain those ladies right back home again
Put the ladies center, back-to-back, boys promenade the outside track
Go once around and find that same girl, dopaso
Turn her by the left and the corner right and her left again
Take that corner by the right and promenade my friend
I want to move ahead but the boss won't seem to let me
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Tumble out of bed and I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawn and stretch and try to come alive
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the street the traffic's jumpin'
Folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Circle left
Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a living
Barely gettin' by

Allemande left and promenade her
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it


TAG

Workin' 9...to...5...oh yeah!

Nine To Five Lyrics ID: 397

Tumble outta bed
And 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'
And folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Workin' 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin'
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

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 in
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me
Mmmmm...

They let you dream
Just a' watch 'em shatter
You're just a step
On the boss man's ladder
But you got dreams he'll never take away

On the same boat
With a lot of your friends
Waitin' for the day
Your ship'll come in
And the tide's gonna turn
An' it's all gonna roll your way

Workin' 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' 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, yeah, they got you where they want you
There's a better life
And you think that I would daunt you
It's a rich man's game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Puttin' money in his wallet

Workin' 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by
It's all takin'
And no givin'
They just use you mind
And they never give you credit
It's 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 dream about it, don't you
It's a rich man's game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Puttin' money in his wallet

Lyrics by Dolly Parton.
