One of my favorite of Cullum's songs, also the title of his second album.

F#m   D7   F#m    D7

       F#m                  D7
After years of expensive education,
   F#m                        G7
A car full of books and anticipation
        F#m                               Em
I'm an expert on Shakespeare and that's a hell of a lot.
         C#mb6                       C7#11               F#m  D7
But the world don't need scholars as much as I thought.
    F#m                 D7           F#m
Maybe I'll go trav'ling for a year, finding myself,
Or start a career.
         F#m                          Em7
I could work for the poor, though I'm hungry for fame.
  C#mb6                     C7#11
We all seem so diff'rent but we're just the same.
    F#m                    D7
Maybe go to the gym so I don't get fat.
        F#m                         G7
Aren't things more easy with a tight six pack?
F#m                    Em7
Who knows the answers, who do you trust?
  C#mb6               C7#11
I can't even separate love from lust.
    F#m                       D7
Maybe move back home and pay off my loans,
         F#m          G7
Working nine to five, answering phones.
F#m                       Em7
Don't make me live for my friday nights,
C#mb6                     C7#11
Drinking eight pints and getting in fights.

F#m  D7  F#m  D7  F#m   D7  F#m  D7   F#m  D7  

         F#m                 Em7
I don't want to get up, just let me lie in;
C#mb6                            C7#11   Bmaj7
Leave me alone, I'm a twenty-something.   
Maybe I'll just fall in love.
Bmaj7                    F#maj7
That could solve it all.
   Bmaj7               F#maj7
Philosophers says that that's enough.
       Dmaj7              C#aug7
There surely must be more.. oooo...

F#m     D9     F#m

Love ain't the answer, nor is work.
     F#m                        G7
The truth eludes me so much it hurts.
         F#m                    Em7
But I'm still having fun and I guess that's the key.
      C#mb6                    C7#11
I'm a twentysomething and I'll keep being me.
F#m                                    D9
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.
