Verse

Bm               
Now that she's older                        
As the embers of romance fade to mortgages and leccy bills     
Been comfortable and that       
Nobody told her that she'd ever reach the stage                                   
Where her husband bores or her or she lies about her age

Bm           
He's compromising             
At least he's got a job for life    
Get born, get school, get job, get car   
Pay tax and find a wife                   
And on that note the end can't come too soon
                                     E                F#
If you're not living on the edge you take up too much room

Chorus 
          Bm           
I could've been a contender
I could've been a someone
E
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no one
         Bm
Could've been me in the papers    
With the money and the girls
           E                           
I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world

Bm

Verse
   
Bm                             
At school he used to dream about being Bruce Lee      
But the need for chops in the Manor Top    
Ain't all that great you see
And so he gave up
On his black belt and first Dan
As near as he got to China
      E              F#
Was a week in Camber sands

Chorus
           
          Bm           
I could've been a contender
I could've been a someone
E
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no one
         Bm
Could've been me in the papers    
With the money and the girls
           E                          
I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world

          Bm           
I could've been a contender
I could've been a someone
E
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no one
         Bm
Could've been me in the papers    
With the money and the girls
           E                          
I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world


Bridge

Bm A E F# A x2


Verse

Bm     
It's boring, it's boring   
It might put you to sleep    
As the same old routine repeated week after week
And you work harder, work harder
You're told that you must
And you must earn a living
You must earn a crust


Bridge
             Bm           
And be like everybody else
        
Be like everybody else
        E     
Be like everybody else
             
Just be like everybody else
        Bm
Be like everybody else
        
Be like everybody else
        E
Be like everybody else
             
Just be like everybody else
         Bm
Be like everybody else
             
Just be like everybody else
        E
Be like everybody else
             
Just be like everybody else
        Bm
Be like everybody else
             
Just be like everybody else
        E
Be like everybody else
             F#        A          
I'm not like everybody else


Chorus
           
          Bm           
I could've been a contender
I could've been a someone
E
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no one
         Bm
Could've been me in the papers    
With the money and the girls
           E                           
I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world

          Bm           
I could've been a contender
I could've been a someone
E
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no one
         Bm
Could've been me in the papers    
With the money and the girls
           E                    F#              A        Bm 
I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world
