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

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

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


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


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

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

It's boring, it's boring
   Em
It might put you to sleep
       Fmaj7                     Em
As the same old routine repeated week after week
             Fmaj7
And you work harder, work harder
       Em
You're told that you must
        Fmaj7
And you must earn a living
    G
You must earn a crust


            G
And be like everybody else
        D
Be like everybody else
        Em
Be like everybody else
             D
Just be like everybody else
        G
be like everybody else
        D
Be like everybody else
        Em
Be like everybody else
             D
Just be like everybody else

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


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

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