"It's Not My Place (In the 9 to 5 World)" as written by and Jeffrey/cummings Hyman....
My mom and dad are always fighting and it's
Getting very un-exciting to get a good job
You need the proper schooling now who the
Hell do ya think you're fooling

But it's not my place oh-no no it's not my
Place no no no it's my-not my-not my place
In the nine to five world and it's not my place
In the nine to five world

And it's not my place with nine to five girl
It's not my place in the nine to five world

Hangin' out with Lester Bangs you all and
Phil Spector really has it all Uncle Floyd
Shows on the T.V. Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, 10cc

But it's not my place
But it's not my place
Don't want to be a working stiff lose my identify
Cause when it comes to working nine to five there
Ain't no place for me ain't my reality, to me

Vin Scelsa's on the radio Ramones are hangin'
Out in Kokomo Roger Corman's on a talk show
With Allan Arkush and Stephen King you know

But it's not my place But It's not my place

    General CommentYup it's about how joey ramone was told that he has to concentrate in school and be a good boy or else hes not gonna get a good job and he'll be a bum, and he is saying that he doesn't want to work in some deskjob in the 9 to 5 world (go to work at 9am, leave at 5pm) and he wants to play music and have his own hours. Good song!
