Intro: Gbm  D7  Gbm  D7

       Gbm                  D7
After years of expensive education,
   Gbm                        G7
A car full of books and anticipation
        Gbm                               Em
I'm an expert on Shakespeare and that's a hell of a lot.
         Dbm                         C7                  Gbm  D7
But the world don't need scholars as much as I thought.
    Gbm                 D7           Gbm
Maybe I'll go trav'ling for a year, finding myself,
Or start a career.

         Gbm                          Em7
I could work for the poor, though I'm hungry for fame.
  Dbm                       C7   
We all seem so diff'rent but we're just the same.
    Gbm                    D7
Maybe go to the gym so I don't get fat.
        Gbm                         G7
Aren't things more easy with a tight six pack?
Gbm                    Em7
Who knows the answers, who do you trust?
  Dbm                 C7   
I can't even separate love from lust.

    Gbm                       D7
Maybe move back home and pay off my loans,
         Gbm          G7
Working nine to five, answering phones.
Gbm                       Em7
Don't make me live for my friday nights,
Dbm                       C7   
Drinking eight pints and getting in fights.

Interlude: Gbm  D7  Gbm  D7  Gbm   D7  Gbm  D7   Gbm  D7  

         Gbm                 Em7
I don't want to get up, just let me lie in;
Dbm                              C7      Bmaj7
Leave me alone, I'm a twenty-something.   
Maybe I'll just fall in love.
Bmaj7                    Gbmaj7
That could solve it all.
   Bmaj7               Gbmaj7
Philosophers says that that's enough.
       Dmaj7              Dbaug7
There surely must be more.. oooo...

Interlude: Gbm  D   Gbm

Love ain't the answer, nor is work.
     Gbm                        G7
The truth eludes me so much it hurts.
         Gbm                    Em7
But I'm still having fun and I guess that's the key.
      Dbm                      C7   
I'm a twentysomething and I'll keep being me.

Gbm                                    D 
Do do and do do and do and do do do do
Do and do do and do and do do do do
Do and do do and do and do do do do
Do and do do and do and do do do do
Do and do do and do and do do do do
Do and do do and do and do do do.
