  • What do you want from life
    To kidnap an heiress
    or threaten her with a knife
    What do you want from life
    To get cable TV
    and watch it every night

    There you sit
    a lump in your chair
    Where do you sleep
    and what do you wear
    when you're sleeping

    What do you want from life
    An Indian guru
    to show you the inner light
    What do you want from life
    a meaningless love affair
    with a girl that you met tonight

    How can you tell when you're doin' alright
    Does your bank account swell
    While you're dreaming at night
    How do know when you're really in love
    Do violins play when you're touching the one
    That you're loving

    What do you want from life
    Someone to love
    and somebody that you can trust
    What do you want from life
    To try and be happy
    while you do the nasty things
    you must

    Well, you can't have that, but if you're an American citizen you are entitled to:
    a heated kidney shaped pool,
    a microwave oven--don't watch the food cook,
    a Dyna-Gym--I'll personally demonstrate it in the privacy of your own home,
    a kingsize Titanic unsinkable Molly Brown waterbed with polybendum,
    a foolproof plan and an airtight alibi,
    real simulated Indian jewelry,
    a Gucci shoetree,
    a year's supply of antibiotics,
    a personally autographed picture of Randy Mantooth
    and Bob Dylan's new unlisted phone number,
    a beautifully restored 3rd Reich swizzle stick,
    Rosemary's baby,
    a dream date in kneepads with Paul Williams,
    a new Matador,
    a new mastadon,
    a Maverick,
    a Mustang,
    a Montego,
    a Merc Montclair,
    a Mark IV,
    a meteor,
    a Mercedes,
    an MG,
    or a Malibu,
    a Mort Moriarty,
    a Maserati,
    a Mac truck,
    a Mazda,
    a new Monza,
    or a moped,
    a Winnebago--Hell, a herd of Winnebago's we're giving 'em away,
    or how about a McCulloch chainsaw,
    a Las Vegas wedding,
    a Mexican divorce,
    a solid gold Kama Sutra coffee pot,
    or a baby's arm holding an apple?
