Lady Sovereign - 9 To 5 Lyrics

OK yo....
I wake up late every morning
Managers calling I'm still yawning
Get up wake up hair and make-ups
Waiting for you don't be stalling
This performance is important
I don't think I can put my all in
Hold on I was drunk last night
Now it's all kicking in and I don't feel right
Gave my number to a breh who wasn't my type
Now my phone's on silent I'm being polite
Now private callers get no love from me
Just let me be...

Oh my gosh my days are getting longer
There's no turning back 'cause I'm working the 9 to 5
To keep my contract did I say 9 I meant 1:30
I'm no early birdy I'm lazy that's all that I can say
So make sure you heard me
And there's no turning back 'cause I'm working a 9 to 5

So you
Channel who sorry who I'm altered for snooze
Oh! Channel U the ones that made me huge
Like Katie Price's boobs
Whoops I'm being rude
Where's my Red Bull and my sandwich I need food
I can't handle this
I'm getting pissed like pampers throwing a tantrum
Nah I'd actually rather catch my z's and count sheep in my sleep
Let's not wake her up she actually looks quite sweet

Oh my Gosh my days are getting longer
And there's no turning back 'cause I'm working a 9 to 5
To keep my contract did I say that I meant 1:30
I'm no early birdy I'm lazy that's all that I can say
So make sure you heard me
I ain't no early birdy
Won't wake up till 12:30

I couldn't be bothered to say much ere
So oh dear
Huh where am I man..?
This... ain't good... what's going on?!

So my label have changed my image
I'm a pink lipstick chick called dipstick
This ain't on my wishlist
Oh shit I'm in FHM posing in a bikini
Next to a Lamborghini
Next stop the theme tune for Tweenies
I'm presenting C-beebies
[pukes] Have you seen me?
Never again, am I drinking lambrini?
"It's alright, Sov it's a dream... just wake up!"

Oh my Gosh my days are getting longer
And there's no turning back 'cause I'm working the 9 to 5
To keep my contract did I say that I meant 1:30
I'm no early birdy I'm lazy I'll say it again
To make sure you heard me
I ain't no early birdy
Won't wake up to 12:30
And I can't be bothered to say much ere
So I'll say it again

[Repeat chorus]

    @2ndHandKate It's a job, sorry but just cuz it's not socially acceptable here doesn't mean it's not there. The families are so poor that they have to send their kids to work. Without those companies paying pennies (which actually -do- help contrary to what the extremist liberal media will have you believe) they wouldn't be able to survive. Quit being so ethnocentric, gawd.

  84. Austin Ozzy

    I'm listening to it in 2011 HELL YEAH.and singing this to bed!!
