Charted: 9
  • Gonna break out of the city
    Leave the people here behind
    Searching for adventure
    It's the type of life to find
    Tired of doing day jobs
    With no thanks for what I do
    I'm sure I must be someone
    Now I'm gonna find out who

    Why don't you ask them what they expect from you?
    Why don't you tell them what you are gonna do?
    You'll get so lonely, maybe it's better that way
    It ain't you only, you got something to say
    Do anything you wanna do
    Do anything you wanna do

    Don't need no politicians to tell me things I shouldn't be
    Neither no opticians to tell me what I oughta see
    No one tells you nothing even when you know they know
    But they tell you what you should do
    They don't like to see you grow

    Why don't you ask them what they expect from you?
    Why don't you tell them what you are gonna do?
    You'll get so lonely, maybe it's better that way
    It ain't you only, you got something to say
    Do anything you wanna do
    Do anything you wanna do

    Gonna break out of the city
    Leave the people here behind
    Searching for adventure
    It's the type of life to find
    Tired of doing day jobs
    With no thanks for what I do
    I'm sure I must be someone
    Now I'm gonna find out who

    Why don't you ask them what they expect from you?
    Why don't you tell them what you're gonna do?
    You'll get so lonely, maybe it's better that way
    It'ain't you only, you got something to say
    Do anything you wanna do
    Do anything you wanna do Writer/s: EDDIE LEE HOLLIS, EDWIN JAMES HOLLIS, GRAEME JOHN DOUGLAS
