My mom and dad are always fighting
And it's getting very unexciting
To get a good job
You need a proper schooling
Now who the hell do you think you're fooling?

But it's not my place, oh, no
No, it's not my place, no, no
No, it's not my, not my, not my place
In the 9 to 5 world

And it's not my place
In the 9 to 5 world
And it's not my place
With 9 to 5 girl
It's not my place
In the 9 to 5 world

Hangin' out with Lester Bangs you all
And Phil Spector really has it all, it all
Uncle Floyd shows on the TV
Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, 10cc

But it's not my place, oh, no
No, it's not my place, no, no
No, it's not my, not my, not my place
In the 9 to 5 world

And it's not my place
In the 9 to 5 world
And it's not my place
With 9 to 5 world
It's not my place
In the 9 to 5 world

Don't wanna be a working staff
Lose my identity
'Cause when it comes
To working 9 to 5
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, oh, no
No, it's not my place, no, no
No, it's not my, not my, not my place
In the 9 to 5 world

And it's not my place
In the 9 to 5 world
And it's not my place
With 9 to 5 world
It's not my place
In the 9 to 5 world

But it's not my place, oh, no
No, it's not my place, no, no
No, it's not my, not my, not my place
In the 9 to 5 world

And it's not my place
In the 9 to 5 world
And it's not my place
With 9 to 5 world
It's not my place
In the 9 to 5 world

No, it's not my place
No, it's not my place
No, it's not my place
No, it's not my place
