(F#m)
Do I have to change my name? • Will it get me far? 
Should I lose some weight? • Am I gonna be a star?

F#m
I tried to be a boy • I tried to be a girl • I tried to be a mess
                  C#                                                      Bm
I tried to be the best • I guess I did it wrong • that's why I wrote this song
             F#m
This type of modern life? • Is it for me?
This type of modern life? • Is it for free?

F#m
So I went into a bar • Looking for simpathy • A little company
                  C#                                                    Bm
I tried to find a friend • It's more easily said • It's always been the same
             F#m  [5+]                [5+]
This type of modern life • Is not for me
             [5+]                     [5+]
This type of modern life • Is not for free


F#m      C#m

F#m                 C#m
I live the American dream
    Bm                      C#m
You are the best thing I've seen
    Bm             C#m
You are not just a dream


F#m
I tried to stay ahead • I tried to stay on top • I tried to play the part
                 C#                                              Bm
but somehow I forgot • just what I did it for • and why I wanted more
             F#m  [5+]               [5+]
This type of modern life • is it for me?
             [5+]                    [5+]
This type of modern life • is it for free?

Should I lose some weight? • Am I gonna be a star?

F#m  [5+]
Ah • Ah • Ah • Ah

F#m  [5+]
I'm drinking a soy latte • I get a double shotte
It goes right through my body • And you know I'm satisfied 
I dropped my mini cooper • And I'm feeling super-duper
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 metaphysic's shit is dope 
And if all this can give me hope • You know I'm satisfied 

I've 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?
