( American Dream song lyrics )
AIN'T IT THE AMERICAN DREAM?
Copyright 2006 - MickTerry.com

The white picket fence doesn't make it anymore.
Need an eight foot wall- to guard us.
The two car garage doesn't do it like before
when we've got all of this stuff.
We park the Hummer in the driveway.
The Beamer's out at the curb.
A new large screen's coming in on Friday
and we far outspend what we earn.

    Well, I've bought my dream and I've sold my soul
    and I've found myself in a deeper hole.
    And I'm spiraling down way out of control.
    AIN'T IT THE AMERICAN DREAM?

It's not like we're out to compete with anyone.
We're not keeping up with the Joneses.
It's more we're inspired to be living like the Trumps
and regardless of the cost.
We're not yet thinking about college.
The twins are only sixteen.
But then, what would they do with that knowledge?
We just bought them each a flat screen.

    CHORUS

        Slow- down. Better put on the brakes.
        Slow- down. Sure, you've got what it takes.
        But, do you want to go where it's taking you?
        Do you really know what you want to do?
        Do you have to buy ev'rything that's new
        just 'cause you saw it on the tube?

Just saw something new with Green Tooth technology.
Don't know what it does, but I want it.
My brand new computer's not fast enough for me
'cause they've built a higher speed.
The life we're living is fantastic.
We've got the toys that we want.
But the life we're living is on plastic
and some day it may come to haunt.

    CHORUS
