I been licking my wounds 
Sick of holding my tongue 
I been sweating my way up those blue hills 
Now I'm taking the plunge 
I been stealing my nerves 
And I'm breaking a lot of wishbones 
Hope I'm displaying manly virtue 
Hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew 

Oh wouldn't it be nice to know? 
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know? 

I been speaking out of turn 
Feel invincible behind that silver fern
And I'm full of a bittersweet anger 
Sick of meaningful dialogue 
I been playing the high and mighty 
Now I'm trying to act my age 
I been making up for lost time 
Hope I'm cooking my goose for the very last time 

Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
It would be nice to know
It would be nice to know
It would be nice to know
Would be nice to know

I been licking my wounds 
Sick of holding my tongue 
I been sweating my way up those blue hills 
Now I'm taking the plunge 
I been stealing my nerves 
And I'm breaking a lot of wishbones 
Hope I'm displaying manly virtue 
Hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew 

Wouldn't it be nice to know? 
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
