(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

You are not just a dream

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

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?



When a chord variation is specified between square brackets,
change rapidly from the chord to its variation and back.
