Madonna

"American Life (Oakenfold Downtempo Remix)"

[Verse 1]
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

[Break]
This type of modern life, is it for me?
This type of modern life, is it for free?

[Verse 2]
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

[Break]
This type of modern life, is not for me?
This type of modern life, is not for free?

[Chorus]
American life
I live the American dream
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream

[Verse 3]
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

[Break]
This type of modern life, is not for me?
This type of modern life, is not for free?

[Refrain]
Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I going to be a star?

[Chorus]
American life
I live the American dream
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream
American life
I live the American dream
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream

[Verse 4]
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 tried to find a friend
I tried to stay ahead
I tried to stay on top
f*ck it

[Verse 5]
I'm drinking a soy latte
I get a double shot-e
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 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 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 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

[Pre-Outro]
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?

[Outro]
American Life
I live the American dream
American life
I live the American dream
American Life
I live the American dream
