AMERICAN LIFE
By: Madonna

Submitted By: hulyaceren@hotmail.com

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
Thatís 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
Itís more easily said
Itís 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 Iíve 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 Iíve 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

Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh

Iím drinkiní a soy latte, I get a double shotť
It goes right through my body and you know Iím satisfied
I drive my mini Cooper and Iím feeling super-duper
Yoí, they tell Iím a trooper and you know Iím satisfied
I do yoga and Pilates and the room is full of hotties
So Iím checkiní out the bodies and you know Iím satisfied
Iím digginí on the isotopes, this metaphysics shit is dope
And if all this can give me hope you know Iím 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 Iím satisfied
Iíd like to express my extreme point of view
Iím not a Christian and Iím not a Jew
Iím just liviní out the American dream
And I just realized that nothiní is what it seems

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