There are many things that I would be proud of
If I'd only invented them such as the wheel
The washing machine and the tumble dryer
On these inventions
Surely I could retire

I want to retire, no longer required
I want to get by without the man on my back
A tear in my eye with a heart full of pride
I must go out on a high
And tell nobody why

There are many things that I know I could do
If I'd only had wanted to such as create
The perfect tone that everyone would admire
On this creation
Surely I could retire

I want to retire, no longer required
I want to get by without the man on my back
A tear in my eye with a heart full of pride
I must go out on a high
And not to answer to why
I want to retire
Inform the suppliers
I'll leave the party in style
I'm not to be carried out
Without a cloud in the sky
I've got my fingers in pies
A golden watch in my side
Will measure my free time

Now my place in history is surely assured
I will be remembered here forever more
A brand new product in place and a potential buyer
Upon this next transaction surely I could retire

I want to retire, no longer required
I want to get by without the man on my back
A tear in my eye with a heart full of pride
I must go out on a high
And not to answer to why
I want to retire
Inform the suppliers
I'll leave the party in style
I'm not to be carried out
Without a cloud in the sky
I've got my fingers in pies
A golden watch in my side
Will measure my free time
