Lirik Lagu Twentysomething Jamie Culum

1

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
Maybe I'll go traveling for a year
Finding myself, or start a career
I could work with the poor, though I'm hungry for fame
We all seem so different, but we're just the same

[Verse 3]
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 separate love from lust

[Verse 4]
Maybe I'll move back home and pay off my loans
Working nine to five answering phones
Don't make me live for my Friday nights
Drinking eight pints and getting in fights

(Musical Solo)

I don't want to get up, just let me lie in
Leave me alone, I'm a twentysomething

[Verse 5]
Maybe I'll just fall in love
That could solve it all
Philosophers say that that's enough;
There surely must be more, ooh

[Verse 5]
Love ain't the answer, nor is work
The truth eludes me, so much it hurts
But I'm still having fun, and I guess that the key;
I'm a twentysomething and I'll keep bein' me

(doo ba dah do ba da da da da, doo ba da do ba da da da da)

[Outro]
I'm a twentysomething, let me lie in
Leave me alone, I'm a twentysomething

(doo ba dah do ba da da da da, doo ba da do ba da da da da)
