Intro: F#m7 D7 F#m7 D7

    F#m7(9)                     D7
After years of expensive education,
F#m7(9)                             G7(13)
A car full of books and anticipation
       F#m7                                                   Em7
I'm an expert on Shakespeare and that's a hell of a lot
       C#7(13)                              C7(9)(#11)
But the world don't need scholars as much as I thought

Solo: F#m7 D7 F#m7 D7

Maybe I'll go travelling for a year
Finding myself, or start a career
Could work the poor, though I'm hungry for fame
We all seem so different but we're just the same

Maybe I'll go to the gym, so I don't get fat
Aren't things more easy, with a tight six pack
Who knows the answers, who do you trust
I can't even seperate love from lust

Maybe I'll move back home and pay off my loans
Working nine to five, answering phones
But don't make me live for Friday nights
Drinking eight pints and getting in fights

Solo: F#m7 D7 F#m7 D7

         F#m7                      Em7         A7
I don't want to get up, just let me lie in
C#7(13)               C7(9)(#11)
Leave me alone, I'm a twentysomething

B7M             F#7M
Maybe I'll just fall in love
 B7M                  F#7M
That could solve it all
   B7M                        F#7M
Philosophers say that that's enough
          D7M              C#7(#9) C#7(b13)
There surely must be more

Solo: F#m7 D7 F#m7 D7

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