Well we've been here once before 
And we've stuck it out for more
When we come around we'll settle down

And we started out to conquer doubt and frisbee 
I should've been a whole lot farther 
I'm never going back to college 
For just one good day job
You're not missing much for sure
Only everything that's yours 
And at times it fails and we're full sail in the gutter 
Is this home 'cause I forgot 
If it is then thanks a lot
'Cause I can't pretend to know one end from the other 
I should've been a whole lot farther 
I'm never going back to college 
For just one good day job
You're not missing much for sure
Only everything that's yours 
At times it fails and we're full sail in the gutter 
Is this home 'cause I forgot 
If it is then thanks a lot
'Cause I can't pretend to know one end from the other 
I should've been a whole lot farther 
I'm never going back to college 
For just one good day job.
