American Life (Madonna)

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 not for me This type of modern life Is not for free American life I live the American dream You are the best thing I've seen You are not just a dream I tried to stay ahead I tried to stay on top I tried to play the part But some how 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 I live the American dream You are the best thing I've seen You are not just a dream 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 Fuck it Do I have to change my name? Will it get me far? Should I lose some weight? Am I gonna be a star? Ahh, fuck it Ahh, fuck it Ahh, fuck it Ahh, fuck it I'm drinking 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-dooper Yo they tell I'm a trooper And you know I'm satisfied I do yoga and palates 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 metaphysic's shit 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? Am I gonna be a star? Do I have to change my name?
