Lyrics
Alarm clock rings; fall out of bed;
Kick the clock; shake my head,
Nine to five, nine to five.
Run downstairs; drink a cup.
Don't know when I'm waking up.
Nine to five, nine to five,
You know we all lead plastic lives,
Nine to five.

Run upstairs; shave my face;
Dress to join the old rat race,
Nine to five, nine to five.
Run outside; chase the bus;
Go to work as I must.
Nine to five, nine to five,
You know we all lead plastic lives,
Nine to five.

Don't you think I wish that I could run upon the wind
And see the fleecy clouds go floating by?
Don't you think I wish that I had time to look within
And ask the How, the Wherefore, and the Why?
But every day is just the same
And every plastic day it seems
My life is nothing but a shame;
I'm only happy in my dreams.

Step outside; have a smoke;
Laugh at Harry's dirty jokes,
Nine to five, nine to five.
While at work I do my job.
At five o'clock I join the mob.
Nine to five, nine to five,
You know we all lead plastic lives,
Nine to five.

Get back home feeling low;
Stay and watch the late late show,
Nine to five, nine to five.
Lousy show, lousy food,
Lousy lifetime interlude,
Nine to five, nine to five,
You know we all lead plastic lives,
Nine to five.
