Song of the Day #2,894: ‘Work From Home’ – Fifth Harmony

fifth_harmony_work_from_homeIn the Hot 100’s #4 spot are the ladies of Fifth Harmony, whose last hit (‘Worth It’) made it to #12 on this list. Their latest effort, ‘Work From Home,’ has been climbing. Could it reach the top spot?

Based on the title, I figured this might be a track about the trend toward telecommuting, particularly popular among Millennials who are interested in work-life balance. But no, it’s about sex.

There’s plenty of eye candy for both men and women in this video, but the thing that most struck me is that all five of these women appear to be about three feet tall.

[Verse 1: Camila]
I ain’t worried ’bout nothin’, I ain’t wearin’ na-nada
I’m sittin’ pretty, impatient, but I know you gotta
Put in them hours, I’mma make it harder
I’m sending pic after picture, I’mma get you fired

[Pre-Chorus: Normani]
I know you’re always on the night shift
But I can’t stand these nights alone
And I don’t need no explanation
Cause baby, you’re the boss at home

[Chorus: Lauren]
You don’t gotta go to work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
But you gotta put in work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
You don’t gotta go to work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
Let my body do the work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
We can work from home, oh, oh, oh-oh
We can work from home, oh, oh, oh-oh

[Verse 2: Ally]
Let’s put it into motion, I’mma give you a promotion
I’ll make it feel like a vacay, turn the bed into an ocean
We don’t need nobody, I just need your body
Nothin’ but sheets in between us, ain’t no getting off early

[Pre-Chorus: Dinah]
I know you’re always on the night shift
But I can’t stand these nights alone
And I don’t need no explanation
Cause baby, you’re the boss at home

[Chorus: Lauren]
You don’t gotta go to work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
But you gotta put in work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
You don’t gotta go to work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
Let my body do the work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
We can work from home, oh, oh, oh-oh
We can work from home, oh, oh, oh-oh

[Verse 3: Ty Dolla $ign]
Oh yeah, girl go to work for me
Can you make it clap, no hands for me?
Take it to the ground, pick it up for me
Look back at it all over me
Put in work like my timesheet
She ride it like a ’63
I’mma buy her new Céline
Let her ride in a foreign with me
Oh, she the bae, I’m her boo
And she down to break the rules
Ride or die, she gon’ go
I won’t judge, she finessin’
I pipe her, she take that
Put in overtime on your body

[Chorus: Lauren, Dinah & Camila]
You don’t gotta go to work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
But you gotta put in work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
You don’t gotta go to work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
Let my body do the work, work, work, work
Work, work, work
We can work from home, oh, oh, oh-oh
We can work from home, oh, oh, oh-oh

[Outro: Camila]
Yeah, we can work from home
Yeah, we can work from home
Yeah

    Maybe this is just because I’m an employment lawyer, but I find the lines “put in work like my timesheet” and “put in overtime on your body” particularly amusing. As for the song, not as catchy as “Worth It” imo.
