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


Chorus:


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


(chorus)


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


Uh, uh, uh, uh


(Spoken:)

I'm drinkin' a soy latte

I get a double shotie

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 me 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 their 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 living out the American dream

And I just realized 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
