Twentysomething Lyrics - Jamie Cullum

Review The Song (5)

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 traveling for a year
Finding myself, or start a career
I could work for 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 separate 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 my Friday nights
Drinking eight pints and getting in fights
sponsored links
Don't wanna get up, just have a lie in
Leave me alone, I'm a twentysomething
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 eludes 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

All: scat
[Sung freely]
I'm a twentysomething, let me lie in
Leave me alone, I'm a twentysomething

All: scat

My twentysomething is over | Reviewer: danielC | 10/22/10

This song really good.. but lucky thing at the age of 29, I got my dream job as a photojournalist.. who care about the educatiion as long as we di something we like to do and that's we call happiness!

wow! | Reviewer: Bry | 2/19/09

At 23 everyone of those thoughts went through my head since leaving education and still are! In fact, i've just got the travelling bit to do and i've tried all of it. Though i worked 8.30 till 6 answering phones!

Brilliant song!

Understanding Twentysomething | Reviewer: Linda | 11/14/07

I'm 22 and about to finish my degree in a month, and now I really understand this song!! Because that us exactly how I feel....
What to do now? I don't know, there's a whole world out there waiting..

Awesome | Reviewer: mia | 7/22/07

This song is terrific. Totally read my mind. Being 23 is like a yo-yo. Neither here nor there and so unsure of life.
