"JAMES DEAN" BY THE GOO GOO DOLLS

This is such an amazing song.It's so sad and depressing but that's why I like it.Basically it's Johnny singing about how his life sucks and he wishes he somebody important like James Dean.Then near the end he kinda makes me laugh when he sings the part "Then you go and tell me you found out Dean was gay.Now,I don't wanna be James Dean...".The whole album is a really awesome punk album.I loved the old Goo Goo Dolls when they only did one soft song per album instead of this pop shit, but that's another story...

Look around outside 
Ain't nothing to do but hang around 
Think about all the stupid things that I've done 
I guess I ain't nothin' but a clown


If I had a wish, I swear I'd wish, I'd wish for just one thing 
And I don't even like to think about all the things my wish'd bring


'Cause I just wanna be James Dean 
I just wanna be James Dean 
I just wanna be James Dean 
For a day


I wanna be oversexed and underworked and look at me I'm such a jerk

And I just wanna be James Dean 
For a day 


Think about stories of the actors and the movies stars 
Sittin' here watchin' the old men drinkin' at the bar 
I think about Dean and all the things he should've tried 
I think about Dean and all the ways he could've died 
Yeah diedů


And I wouldn't give a shit about anything 'cause I'd be such a big movie star 
And that don't really do me much good just cryin' at the bar


But I just wanna be James Dean 
I just wanna be James Dean 
I just wanna be James Dean 
For a day 


See but I'm overworked and undersexed and look at me I'm such a wreck

And I just wanna be James Dean 
For a day


Going crazy 'cause I'm always all alone 
Going crazy no one calls me on the phone 
I think about Dean and I know Dean he wouldn't care 
If I was Dean I know there'd be somebody there 
Yeah there'd be somebody there 
For me...


Yeah I think about all the really cool things I could do and say 
Then you go and tell me that you found out Dean was gay


No, I don't wanna be James Dean 
I don't wanna be James Dean 
I don't wanna be James Dean 
Anymore...
Hmmm...
