There's a headache waiting for me
8:30 Monday morning
And it's mine until the weekend comes
Blue collar on my worker's vest
Five at a time the days go past
And all that's left to show is five more days
I guess that I was born too late
To think that I deserve a place
Where I don't have to play your stupid game
But you have something that I need
And paper says it won't come free
Another day goes down to minimum wage
But I'm not buying in
There must be more to life than this
Nine to five and selling time away
I'm not buying in
Because my time belongs to me
And there's got to be a better way
Clock radio says it's time to go
I don't want it that way
"Go to work", they say
But I don't want it that way
How much money is worth one third of my life?
How much money is worth half my waking life?
How much money is worth the best years of my life?
You call them benefits, and I say human rights
But I can't be late
Or I won't get paid
From nine to five
I sell my life
But I'm not buying in...
