I'd like to tell you all just a little bit about my background. I grew up in the Southeastern part of Oklahoma. In a little, bitty town called Chockie. It was little, it only had 18 people it. That's 18 people, not 1,800. We're talkin' small. In that town in Southeastern Oklahoma, we had a lot of fun growin' up, us kids. There was 3 things that my mama and daddy always taught us. Number one, they taught us to work hard. Number two, they told us, if you ever start a job - you finish it. And number three, they said once you start that job you give it 110% of everything you have. And we did. Not only is my daddy a hard workin' man, but my mama is a hard workin' woman. And that's what she instilled in us three girls, was to be hard workin' women. Now that's not to say we didn't have a lot of fun, 'cause we did. Why, I can remember gettin' in that closet. Puttin' on them high-heeled shoe And I wanna dedicate it to all the hard-workin' women with us tonight! 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 I jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin' Out on the street the traffic starts jumpin' For folks like me on the job from 9 to 5 Workin' 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 9 to 5 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
