American Life
oleh: Madonna



Do I have to change my nameWill it get me farShould I lose some weightAm I gonna be a star

I tried to be a boyI tried to be a girlI tried to be a messI tried to be the bestI guess I did it wrongThatís why I wrote this song

This type of modern lifeIs it for meThis type of modern lifeIs it for free

So, I went into a barLooking for sympathyA little companyI tried to find a friendItís more easily saidItís always been the same

This type of modern lifeIs not for meThis type of modern lifeIs not for free

American life (American life)I live the American dream (American dream)You are the best thing Iíve seenYou are not just a dream (American life)

I tried to stay aheadI tried to stay on topI tried to play the partBut somehow I forgotJust what I did it forAnd why I wanted more

This type of modern lifeIs it for meThis type of modern lifeIs it for free

Do I have to change my nameWill it get me farShould I lose some weightAm I gonna be a star

American life (American life)I live the American dream (American dream)You are the best thing Iíve seenYou are not just a dream (American life)

I tried to be a boyTried to be a girlTried to be a messTried to be the bestTried to find a friendTried to stay aheadI tried to stay on top

Do I have to change my nameWill it get me farShould I lose some weightAm I gonna be a star

OhOhOhOh

Iím drinkiní a soy latte, I get a double shotť It goes right through my body and you know IímsatisfiedI drive my mini Cooper and Iím feeling super-duperYoí, they tell Iím a trooper and you know IímsatisfiedI do yoga and Pilates and the room is full of hottiesSo Iím checkiní out the bodies and you know IímsatisfiedIím digginí on the isotopes, this metaphysics s*** isdopeAnd if all this can give me hope you know IímsatisfiedI got a lawyer and a manager, an agent and a chefThree nannies, an assistant and a driver and a jetA trainer and a butler and a bodyguard or fiveA gardener and a stylist, do you think Iím satisfiedIíd like to express my extreme point of viewIím not a Christian and Iím not a JewIím just liviní out the American dreamAnd I just realized that nothiní is what it seems

Do I have to change my nameAm I gonna be a starDo I have to change my name
