American Life
Madonna Lyrics


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

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

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]

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

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

It’s time to release the original uncensored video!!

WAKE UP!!

saraya braun

@The Dreamer by Gio thank you

Mr. Owl

@The Dreamer by Gio WHAT THE HELL GIO?!! EXPLAIN YOURSELF. NWO.

Nuno Gouveia

@Travel Log Madonna and her familly received credible dead threathens and so she decided to withdraw it. Most probably US secret services were behind it.

Nuno Gouveia

@The Dreamer by Gio This was not the one that was played on European music channels. The other had Bush at the end lighting up a cigar with the granade.

Nuno Gouveia

WAKE UP! The original version was still played on a few music channels in Europe (especially German and French) for about 1 month! Please UPLOAD IT MADONNA! That's probably why the album was much more successful in France than anywhere else selling almost 1 million copies there alone (much more than it sold in US).
