  1. I took this job when I left school and I thought it might be fun,
    I signed the papers binding me 'til I was twenty-one.
    But I just can't wait to collect my cards, I just can't wait to go,
    I can't get along with the people here and the work it bores me so.
  2. So I learned the trade for what it's worth and the time has gone so slow,
    But soon my birthday's coming up and I'll be free to go.
    But I just can't wait to collect my cards, I just can't wait to go,
    I can't get along with the people here and the work it bores me so.
  3. Well, I think I'll wait 'til the wedding's over before I say goodbye,
    For the girlfriend tells me that we must save if a house we hope to buy.
    But I just can't wait to collect my cards, I just can't wait to go,
    I can't get along with the people here and the work it bores me so.
  4. Now I'll have to wait 'til the baby's born before I can be free,
    For I understand a pregnant wife must have security.
    But I just can't wait to collect my cards, I just can't wait to go,
    I can't get along with the people here and the work it bores me so.
  5. Well, I think I'll wait 'til the kids leave school before I break away,
    For growing kids eat money and I need the steady pay.
    But I just can't wait to collect my cards, I just can't wait to go,
    I can't get along with the people here and the work it bores me so.
  6. Now I think I'll wait 'til the house is mine before I break the tie,
    For the interest rates keep rising and the car it bleeds me dry.
    But I just can't wait to collect my cards, I just can't wait to go,
    I can't get along with the people here and the work it bores me so.
  7. Well I think I'll wait 'til retiring age before I risk a break,
    'Cos the pension scheme insures the wife and it's mainly for her sake.
    But I just can't wait to collect my cards, I just can't wait to go,
    I can't get along with the people here and the work it bores me so.
  8. Well, thank you for the gold watch, Sir, the silver collection too,
    But are you sure I have to go for I won't know what to do.
    And I just can't bear to collect my cards, I just can't bear to go.
    For I shall miss the people here and my life it bores me so.
