I Want to Be

I want to be a rock star,
But I can't sing and I don't play.
I want to be in movies,
But I can't act and I'm not gay.

I want to be an astronaut,
But I'm too fat and scared of heights.
I want to be a lawyer,
But I don't care about your rights.

I want to be a ladies man,
But I'm too bald and not too cool.
I want to be a teacher,
But I'm too dumb and I hate school.

I want to be a protestor,
But I'm too shy to take a stand.
I want to be a preacher,
But I can't love my fellow man.

I want to be a prizefighter,
But I'm too small and not too tough.
I want to be a therapist,
But really, I don't care enough.

I want to be a homerun king,
But I can't cheat and don't get high.
I want to be the president,
But I'm too poor and I can't lie.

I want to be a circus clown,
But I'm too sad and not much fun.
I want to be a soldier,
But I can't fight and don't like guns.

I want to be a sailor,
But I get sick and I can't swim.
I want to be a stockbroker,
But my future's looking dim.

I want to be a brain surgeon,
But my hand shakes and I can't see.
I want to be so many things,
Just anything but me.
