American Life

Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?

I tried to be a boy
I tried to be a girl
I tried to be a mess
I tried to be the best
I guess I did it wrong
That's why I wrote this song

This type of modern life
Is it for me?
This type of modern life
Is it for free?

So, I went into a bar
Looking for sympathy
A little company
I tried to find a friend
It's more easily said
It's always been the same

This type of modern life
Is it for me?
This type of modern life
Is it for free?

American life (American life)
I live the American dream (American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream (American life)

I tried to stay ahead
I tried to stay on top
I tried to play the part
But somehow I forgot
Just what I did it for
And why I wanted more

This type of modern life
Is it for me
This type of modern life
Is it for free?

Do I have to change my name
Will it get me far
Should I lose some weight
Am I gonna be a star

American life (American life)
I live the American dream (American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream (American life)

I tried to be a boy
Tried to be a girl
Tried to be a mess
Tried to be the best
Tried to find a friend
Tried to stay ahead
I tried to stay on top

Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?

I'm drinkin' a soy latte, I get a double shoté
It goes right through my body and you know I'm satisfied
I drive my mini Cooper and I'm feeling super-duper
Yo', they tell I'm a trooper
And you know I'm satisfied
I do yoga and Pilates
And the room is full of hotties
So I'm checkin' out the bodies and you know I'm satisfied
I'm diggin' on the isotopes
This metaphysics sh*t is dope
And if all this can give me hope
You know I'm satisfied

I got a lawyer and a manager, an agent and a chef
Three nannies, an assistant and a driver and a jet
A trainer and a butler
And a bodyguard or five
A gardener and a stylist
Do you think I'm satisfied?

I'd like to express my extreme point of view
I'm not a Christian and I'm not a Jew
I'm just livin' out the American dream
And I just realized that nothin' is what it seems

Do I have to change my name?
Am I gonna be a star?
Do I have to change my name?
