"I'm Bored" as written by and Iggy Pop....
I'm bored.
I'm the chairman of the board.
I'm a Lincoln monologue, I'm livin' like a God,
I'm bored.

I bore myself to sleep at night, I bore myself in broad daylight, 'cause I'm bored.
Just another slimy bore.

I'm free to bore my well-bought friends,
And spend my cash until the end,
'cause I'm bored!
I'm bored!
I'm the chairman of the board.

I'm sick.
I'm sick of all my kicks.
I'm sick of all the stiffs, I'm sick of all the dips, I'm bored.

I bore myself to sleep at night, I bore myself in broad daylight,
'cause I'm bored!
I'm bored!
Just another dirty bore!
Alright now, face, come out and bore me!

I am sick!
I am sick of all my kicks!
I'm sick of all the stiffs, I'm sick of all the dips, I'm sick!
I'm sick when I go to sleep at night, I'm still sick in the broad daylight,
'Cause I'm bored!
I'm bored!
I'm the chairman of the board!

    General CommentWrong and wrong. Iggy Pop is known for his brilliant sarcasm. When society accommodates you with everything you could possibly have, your life lacks substance. This song also expresses the shallowness of boredom and how "bored" has become just one of those words that mean nothing and that people merely throw around as a euphemism for their emptiness. Moreso a very poetic satire of a bourgeois plane of existence than an expression of real boredom. Boredom is simple. It's the way people use the word that is complicated.

    General CommentYeah, or like he can't find anything interesting in his life anymore, cause all the things he used to like don't mean much to him anymore
