retirement lyrics – kaiser chiefs

there are many things that i would be proud of
if i’d only invented them such as the wheel
the washing machine and the tumble dryer
on these inventions surely i could retire

i want to retire
no longer required
i want to get by without the man on my back
a tear in my eye
with a heart full of pride
i must go out on a high
and tell n*body why

there are many things that i know i could do
if i’d only have wanted to, such as create
the perfect soulmate everyone would admire
on this creation surely i could retire

i want to retire
no longer required
i want to get by without the man on my back
a tear in my eye
with a heart full of pride
i must go out on a high
and not to answer to why

i want to retire
inform the suppliers
i’ll leave the party in style
and not to be carried out
without a cloud in the sky
i got my fingers in pies
a golden watch on my side
will measure my free time

now my place in history is surely *ssured
i will be remembered here forever more
brand new product in place and a potential buyer
up on this next transaction surely i could retire

i want to retire
no longer required
i want to get by without the man on my back
a tear in my eye
with a heart full of pride
i must go out on a high
and not to answer to why

i want to retire
inform the suppliers
i’ll leave the party in style
and not to be carried out
without a cloud in the sky
i got my fingers in pies
a golden watch on my side
will measure my free time
