"I Wish I Was Him (version 1)" as written by and Sammy Cahn Jimmy Van Heusen....
It may sound stupid when I say it out loud
Like I'm just jealous of his silver cloud
He looks real good he drinks diet Coke
He gets his NME's sent by air not boat

I wish I was him
He gets the women at his feet
With all his cool friends
He gets his records for free
I wish I was him
He has no enemies
I wish I was him

He's got six different flannel shirts
Airwalks not thongs
He even understands the words to Pavement songs
He's got his new guitar toys
He loves Smudge and the Beastie Boys

I wish I was him
He gets the girls at his feet
With all his cool friends
He gets his records for free
I wish I was him
He has no enemies
I wish I was him

I feel much better now I've let it all out
He's got big biceps and a masculine shout
I don't want to sound like I'm trying to be mean
But he plays guitar much faster than me

I wish I was him
He gets the girls at his feet
With all his cool friends
He gets his records for free
I wish I was him
He has no enemies
I wish I was him

I wish I was him
He gets the girls at his feet
I wish I was him
He has no enemies
With all his cool friends
He gets his records for free
I wish I was him
I wish I was him
