Twenty Something


Jamie cullum





After years of expensive education
A car full of books and anticipation
I’m an expert on Shakespeare and that’s a hell of a lot
But the world don’t need scholars as much as I thought

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

I don’t want to get up, just let me lie in,
Leave me alone, I’m a twenty something.

Maybe I’ll just fall in love
That could solve it all
Philosophers say that that’s enough
There surely must be more

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

I’m a twenty something. Let me lie in,
Leave me alone. I’m a twenty something

    facing the facts, feel pathetic,
    just indulge in my own world!
