9 to 5 vs Squeeze me (A-Skillz rmx) by Tom DATG

Lyrics (They are slightly different)

Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawnin’, stretchin’, 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 nine to five

Chorus:

Workin’ nine to five
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

Nine to five, 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
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me
Mmmmm…

[Crazy remix bit…]

They let your 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

In the same boat with a lot of your friends
Waitin’ for the day your ship’ll come in
And the tide’s gonna turn
And it’s all gonna roll your way

2nd Chorus:

Workin’ nine to five
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

Nine to five, yeah
They got you where they want you
There’s a better life
And you think 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

3rd Chorus:

Nine to five
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
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me
Mmmmm…
