Just when you think you are the shit 
Well, you look down and your fly is unzipped 
That's when you take a moment to say, 
"Well, sometimes I'm so totally unhip." 

Just when the great ones inspire you 
To throw caution to the wind 
That's when the mirror, mirror on the wall says, 
"Babe, you better throw your towel in." 

All that I don't know 
Paralyzes me 
But somehow I keep going on 
Just settling for this mediocrity 
And I wonder if God is trying to make a fool out of me 

There are legends who die 
And I've never even heard their songs 
And there are heroes of a generation 
Whose poetry is not on my shelf 
And my soliloquies would make Shakespeare 
Turn over in his grave 
And voyagers would forbid me 
To join in their crusade 


I wish I could fight against Ali and win 
I wish I could write with Joni Mitchell's pen 
Sail the Atlantic on a paddle boat 
I wish I could smile like Bobby de Niro 
I wish that the lotto was the number of my telephone 
I wish I could sing a duet with Bono 
'Cause I don't want to sound like 
Anyone else, you know 

I just want to take you under my spell 
Excuse me for saying 
What I know down deep is my sin 
But maybe I'll fool everybody into thinking 
I know just what I am doing
