I dream of a bathroom
Brown and red tiles
Sports-page wallpaper
Instead of urinals, a trough
The sink runs hot water right when you turn it on
There's soap in the shape of an eagle
The hand-towel is an old shirt
There's a tin of chalky grease that I run through my hair
As I gaze into the mirror and flirt with myself
Hey, baby
I wanna be-

I wanna be your American boyfriend
I'll pick you up in my truck I painted black
I wanna be your American boyfriend
Drinkin' gasoline from an old smokestack

I want you to want me
Like I wanna want you
I want to place a want ad in wont for you
To want to want me wantonly too
I wanna be, I wanna be

I wanna be your American boyfriend
Tonight I'll give you the Roman Empire's rise and fall
I wanna be your American boyfriend
I'll cook you breakfast that's high in cholesterol
