Song Lyrics

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 in to 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 not for me

This type of modern life is not 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 X2)

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 drinking a Soy latte,

I get a double shotte,

It goes through my body,

And you know I`m satisfied

I drive my Mini Cooper

And I`m feeling super-dooper

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 checking out the bodies

And you know I`m satisfied

I`m digging 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 Christian and I`m not a Jew

I`m just living out the American dream

And I just realised that nothing

Is what it seems

Do I have to change my name

Am I gonna be a star

Do I have to change my name
