"Lost In America" as written by and Cooper/saylor/wexler....
I can't get a girl
'Cause I ain't got a car
I can't get a car
'Cause I ain't got a job
I can't get a job
'Cause I ain't got a car
So I'm looking for a girl with a job and a car
Don't you know where you are

Lost in America

I got a mom but I ain't got a dad
My dad's got a wife but she ain't my mom
Mom's looking for a man to be my dad
But I want my mom and dad to be my real
mom and dad
Is that so bad
Oh, I think I've been had

Lost in America

Well, I live at the 7-11
Well, I'm tryin' to play this guitar
Well, I'm learning "Stairway to Heaven"
'cause Heaven's where you are

I can't go to school
'Cause I ain't got a gun
I ain't got a gun
'Cause I ain't got a job
I ain't got a job
'Cause I can't go to school
So I'm looking for a girl with a gun and a job
Don't you know where you are

Lost in America

    General CommentEssentially this song is about a guy who can't achieve his goals because of a circular set of obstacles.

    My OpinionAlice Cooper is an intelligent man, so these lyrics are obviously stupid on purpose. Maybe he thinks we're all complete meatheads or something. Maybe someone dared him to write a song in three minutes or less.
