Its used as a verb. It is what you actually do when you get to work. Many jobs have fancy names like Assistant executive vice-president to the blind foundation of excellence, but people dont know what that means, so you ask them, "whats your nine to five?" and they tell you if they sit at a desk, or do they write papers? are they walking around supervising people? what does the person actually do all day, the actual 9am to 5pm shift, what are they doing specifically?
"whats your "nine to five?"

Get the mug
Get a nine to five mug for your fish Bob.
Also used in the Ramones song "It's Not My Place" on the Pleasant Dreams album
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 ya 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

Get the merch
Get the nine to five neck gaiter and mug.
Used in ramones song "we want the airwaves"
9 to 5 and 5 to 9 ain't gonna take it
It's our time we want the world
And we want it now we're gonna take it, anyhow

We want the airwaves We want the airwaves We want
the airwaves, baby if rock is gonna stay alive

Oh yeah-well all right let's rock-tonite all night

Where's your guts and will to survive
And don't you wanna keep rock

Get a nine to five mug for your fish Jovana.
When you are out partying and you bring home a girl that is a nine, but you wake up the next morning and she is a five laying in the bed next to you. You just experienced a nine to five.
Joe thought he brought home a fine bitty from the club last night, but when he woke up, there was a five in his bed. Joe got nine to fived.

A Nine-To-Five is a girl who applied too much makeup that she was brought down from a nine to a five.
Rich: "Did you see that girl back there? I'm pretty sure that's not her natural facial skin color."

Johnson: "That's just Courtney, she's a total Nine-To-Five."
