"Ivanka" as written by Roddy Christopher Bottum, William Mark Schwartz, Joan Marie Stebbins and Lynn Elise Truell....
One, two, three, go

Gonna be the bride for the hundredth time
Faded beauty eyes with some worry lines
I'm not gonna crash, friendly skies
Tall glass of water just to stay alive

Knockout (Wanna, you wanna)
In a sea of faces
She's a walk-on (Wanna, you wanna)
See so many places
In a rocket (Wanna, you wanna)
She's filling up the spaces
A reflection (Wanna, you wanna)
And she's in the news again

Backwards, forwards, A to Z
You look for your future in a cup of tea
You made the connection and you seen the light
But you still can't seem to get it right

A knockout (Wanna, you wanna)
In a sea of faces
She's a walk-on (Wanna, you wanna)
I will sing her praises
And it's our house (Wanna, you wanna)
We make the rules
It's a reflection (Wanna, you wanna)
And she's in the news again

Climb, climb, Caroline, don't look down
The flying trapeze never hangs with clowns
The basketful of kisses that you pass around
Is like a two-car garage in a one-horse town

Knockoff (Wanna, you wanna)
In a sea of faces
In a rocket (Wanna, you wanna)
She's filling up the spaces
And it's our house (Wanna, you wanna)
We make the rules
It's a reflection (Wanna, you wanna)

One, two, three, go

Gonna be a bride for the hundredth time (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
Faded beauty eyes with some worry lines (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
I'm not gonna crash...friendly skies (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
Living on the border just to stay alive (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)

Knockout (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
In a sea of faces
In a rocket (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
Seen so many phases
She's a walk-on (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
Filling up the spaces
A reflection (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
And she makes the rules

'Cause she's a knockoff (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
In a sea of faces
In a drive-by (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
We will sing her praises
In a rocket (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
She will break the rules
That's a reflection (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
But she's in the news

A drive-by (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
All the pretty faces
It's a knockoff (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
In a sea of faces
(???) (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
We will sing her praises
Going nowhere (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
And she makes the rules

She's in a movie (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
And she's not mine
And I want her (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
And I want her
And I want her (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
And she's not mine
And I want her (Wanna...you wanna...you wanna...you wanna be the)
Yeah, I wanna
To be the one

    General CommentThis song was in one of those car commercials..hahahahaha.

    I love how they steal all these great indie songs for all their commercials, and everyone's like "Man this song is cool..." yet they don't know what the song is...and go off into their own cars to listen to "The Killers" and "Ashley Simpson"...

    I love this song. And the music video is so so nice. I dance just like those people in that video...KARRAZEE.

    General CommentI've been hearing this song everywhere! In clubs, commercials, and movies but finally found out the band who had the song! This song is so catchy and fun, I crank it everytime in the car. Imperial Teen is the best.

    General Commentprobably not. but, 'ivanka' is such a good name for whomever he is speaking of, and i'm sure he named the song after ivanka trump, as [i hope] no one else has that name.

    My InterpretationThis song either talks plainly about the world of prostitutes or the world of cheating teens who become prostitutes. This song is clearly presenting the views of prostitutes and their supposedely categories. For example, the ones living at the border just to stay alive reffering to master slave prostitutes, bdsm.
