Cause you can see my face in the window of every store.
You can buy by lunchbox and you can wear my clothes.
You can remember my name just as plain as the face under your nose.

though I may not be Johann Sebastian Bach.

I didnt ask to be famous, but Im not sad,

I thank my hairdresser for giving me such beautiful curls.
Now Im a New Kid on the Block, well Im twenty-three and they wont let me grow
I went down to register for the draft,
well I got up to the counter, and the lady there just laughted,

I knew you Kids were trouble from the start.
i didnt ask to be famous, but Im not sure

I can stay up all night. I can have a blast.
I can breakdance, I can fight, I can kick your sorry ass.
