Retirement Lyrics

by 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 nobody why

There are many things that I know I could do
If I'd only have wanted to, such as create
The perfect soul mate 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 assured
I will be remembered here forevermore
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
