The Lyrics

From The Album "Something Goats Can Dance To"
American Idol, I can really sing
American Idol, Simon please pick me

Now don't you say that I'm the worst
I guarantee I'll be the first
Please just give me one more chance
Look I can do a lot more than just dance
Now Paula, she liked me
American idol, yeah that is me

American Idol, listen to me sing
American idol, Simon please pick me
Stayed up practicing all night
I've drawn a blank I swear it's the lights
Only ten hours to prepare
I really had to fix my hair
Now Randy, yo dog it's me
American Idol, you know that's me

American Idol, I will raise the bar
American Idol, you're the worst by far
I made it to the final three
I feel bad you're up against me
I have the entire country's vote
Well I guess that's all she wrote
Now we're in the final two
I'm in second place those fools
Now Ryan, get a job
American Idol, I was robbed
American Idol, I can really sing
American Idol, Simon please pick me

I should of won
I know I am the best
I really should of won
I should of beat the rest

I'm gonna win it next year
I'm gonna win it next year
I'm gonna win it next year
I'm gonna win it next year


American Idol
Simon called me names
Broke my self-esteem
Made me lose my confidence
And cost me my biggest dream
I'm gonna win it next year
You know I'm gonna win
I'm gonna win it next year
I'm gonna win, I'm gonna win

I gonna win, American Idol
