Learnt My Lesson Well Lyrics

by Kaiser Chiefs

I'm just waiting for
The man to come with all my things
And I'm just waiting for
Another man to take it all

And it's not hard to tell
That I learnt my lesson well
But I'm just waiting for
The man to come and go away

What are you waiting for
Get up off your seat
It's just seven days
It feels like a week

What are you moaning for
You got all that you want
Life could be worse
You could be a nurse

It seems more sensible
For us to keep the purse strings tight
And move the decimals
A couple of places to the right

And it's not hard to tell
That I learnt my lesson well
It seems most sensible
But not exactly what we'd like

What are you waiting for
Get up off your seat
It's just seven days
It feels like a week

What are you moaning for
You got all that you want
Life could be worse
You know, we all could be cursed

I can't help being like this
So don't rearrange it
I don't mean to be a dick
I just don't like the changes

I can't help the things I say
You know wouldn't to strangers
But I don't like going away
Because it puts me in danger

I can tell you now
There ain't a problem can't be solved
With a good old fashioned row
So grit your teeth and stand your ground

And it's not hard to tell
That I learnt my lesson well
But I'm still waiting for
The man to come with all my things

What are you waiting for
Get up off your seat
It's just seven days
It feels like a week

What are you moaning for
You got all that you want
Life could be worse
And you could leave in a hearse
