9 To 5 with Dolly & Sheena

  1980年的西洋流行樂壇中,出現了一首同名單曲"9 To 5",一首是Dolly Parton的"9 To 5",另一首是Sheena Easten的"9 To 5"。

 

  Dolly Parton的"9 To 5"收錄在專輯"9 to 5 Old Jobs"之中,作詞、譜曲、演唱皆由她個人一手包辦,並且也是1980年電影"Nine To Five"的同名主題曲,當年單曲發行後一舉拿下流行單曲榜、鄉村單曲榜以及成人抒情榜的三料冠軍,在Billboard流行單曲榜上一共獲得兩週冠軍,不過中間被Eddie Rabbitt的"I Love A Rainy Night"從中阻檔兩週,這種回鍋冠軍的單曲其實並不多見。

 

  在歌曲獎項部分,"9 To 5"獲得Academy Award的"Best Song"提名和四項Grammy Award的提名,最後獲得了"Country Song of the Year"及"Female Country Vocal of the Year"兩個獎項,算是一首相當成功的流行勁曲。

 

  而1980年在美國有了Dolly Parton的"9 To 5",無獨有偶的在英國也出現了一首"9 To 5",由Sheena Easten演唱,並收錄在專輯"Take My Time"中,一共拿下三週英國單曲榜冠軍,而在此時Sheena同樣也有一首單曲"Morden Girl"在英國單曲榜前十名的名單當中,這使她成為首位有兩首單曲同時挺進流行單曲榜前十名的女歌手。

 

  隔年此曲在美國發行,並在5月份登上Billboard單曲榜兩週冠軍以及成人抒情榜冠軍,當時在北發行為了要與Dolly的"9 To 5"做區分,Sheena的版本則把歌名改成"Morning Train(9 To 5)",這首單曲前後在英美兩地掄元,成為Sheena Easten最紅也最為人知曉的國際性流行勁曲。

 

  兩首歌雖然一樣都叫"9 To 5",不過歌詞的內容卻很不一樣,Dolly的這首單曲是有關女性解放,與電影主題相互呼應,而Sheena的這首單曲卻是在描述一位女性整天在家等待她的男人下班回家的一段心情,是兩首截然不同的單曲。

Dolly Parton - "9 To 5"

written by Dolly Parton

Tumble outta bed
And 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 9 to 5

Chorus:

Workin 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin
Barely gettin by
Its all takin
And no givin
They just use your mind
And they never give you credit
Its enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

9 to 5, for service and devotion
You would think that i
Would deserve a fair promotion
Want to move ahead
But the boss wont seem to let me in
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me
Mmmmm...

They let your dream
Just a watch em shatter
Youre just a step
On the boss mans a ladder
But you got dream hell never take away

On the same boat
With a lot of your friends
Waitin for the day
Your shipll come in
And the tides gonna turn
An it's all gonna roll you away

2nd chorus:

Workin 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin
Barely gettin by
Its all takin
And no givin
They just use your mind
And you never get the credit
Its enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you
There's a better life
And you think that I would daunt you
Its a rich mans game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Puttin money in his wollet

3rd chorus:

Workin 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin
Barely gettin by
Its all takin
And no givin
They just use you mind
And they never give you credit
Its enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

Fade:

9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you
There's a better life
And you dream that I would daunt you
Its a rich mans game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Puttin money in his wollet

Sheena Easten - "Morning Train(9 To 5)"

written by  Florrie Palmer

I wake up every morning
I stumble out of bed
Stretching and yawning
another day ahead
It seems to last forever
and time goes slowly by
Till babe and me's together
then it starts to fly

'Cause the moment that he's with me
time can take a flight
The moment that he's with me
everything's alright
Night time is the right time
we make love
Then it's his and my time
we take off

My baby takes the morning train
he works from nine till five and then
He takes another home again
to find me waiting for him

My baby takes the morning train
he works from nine till five and then
He takes another home again
to find me waiting for him

He takes me to a movie
or to a restaurant, to go
Slow dancing anything I want
Only when he's with me
I catch light
Only when he gives me
makes me feel alright

My baby takes the morning train
he works from nine till five and then
He takes another home again
to find me waiting for him

All day I think of him
dreamin' of him constantly
I'm crazy mad for him
and he's crazy mad for me
When he steps off that train
I'm makin' a fool, a fight
Work all day to earn his pay
so we can play all night

My baby takes the morning train
he works from nine till five and then
He takes another home again
to find me waiting for him

He's always on that morning train
He works so hard
To find me waiting for him
