The Lyrics To Dolly Parton’s "5 To 9" From Squarespace’s Super Bowl Ad Will Fire You Up

National treasure Dolly Parton has made news this past year for everything from funding vaccines to starring in Christmas movies. Now she’s kicking off 2021 by teaming up with Squarespace for a Super Bowl ad based on one of her most famous songs ever. Like many well-done parody songs, the lyrics to Dolly Parton’s "5 To 9" are an utterly delightful play on the original.

The world has changed dramatically since the original Nine to Five movie was released in 1980. Back then, people did work from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and went home and relaxed. Nowadays, with the advent of social media and the internet, people work day jobs and then go home to their side hustle, the one they work 5-9.

Considering the changing norms, it’s probably high time Parton’s hit song got a remake. And, true to Squarespace’s ethos, Parton is using it to promote her own latest side hustle. Parton is getting into the world of perfume with "Dolly – A Scent from Above." The ad’s debut on Super Bowl Sunday coincides with her website’s launch selling her new fragrance. Those who didn’t know how much they needed a Dolly Parton Perfume until now can get a credit towards a full-sized bottle by buying a sample.

Even if you’re not into scents, you probably will be into this ad, which is shaping up to be the weekend’s biggest earworm.

The full version of Dolly’s update to the classic tune is now streaming on most music platforms. Note that the first half is taken directly from the original song because there’s no replacing that opening verse.

Tumble outta bed

And I stumble to the kitchen

Pour myself a cup of ambition

And yawn and stretch and try to come to life

Jump in the shower

And the blood starts pumpin’

Out on the streets

The traffic starts jumpin’

With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Working 9 to 5

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

Working five to nine

You’ve got passion and a vision

Cuz it’s hustlin’ time

A whole new way to make a livin’

Gonna change your life

Do something that gives it meaning

With a website that is worthy of your dreaming

Well, you got dreams

And you know they matter

Be your own boss and climb your own ladder

That moment’s getting closer by the day

And you’re in the same boat with a lot of your friends

Lots of ideas you all believe in

The tide’s gonna turn

And it’s all going to roll your way

Working five to nine

Making something of your own now

And it feels so fine to build a business from your know-how

Gonna move ahead

And there’s nothing that you can’t do

When you listen to that little voice inside you

Working five to nine

You’ve got passion and a vision

Cuz it’s hustlin’ time

A whole new way to make a livin’

Gonna change your life

Do something that gives it meaning

With a website that is worthy of your dreaming

Five to nine

You keep working, working, working

Working five to nine

‘Til you dreams come true

Working five to nine

You keep dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

Five to nine, five to nine

You can do it
