Lyrics
I could be the next Bob Dylan
In the market I could make a killing
I could write a poem or sonnet
If I could just concentrate on it

I could be the next Don Juan
I could run a marathon
I could write a book or play
If my mind just wouldn't stray

But I'm easily distracted
My brain is hyperactive
My senses overloaded
My ambition has imploded

I could be the next Madonna
Or just a drag queen - but who'd wanna?
I could be the next Tom Cruise
I could learn to play the blues

I could be the next Ronald Reagan
Or just an actor like Kevin Bacon
I could learn French in just one day
If my mind just wouldn't stray

But I'm easily distracted
My brain is hyperactive
My senses overloaded
My ambition has imploded

I used to be an overachiever
I used to be an eager beaver
I used to do something useful with my time
Tried to be at the front of the line

Now I've got all these channels
Now I've got video on demand
I've got more than I can handle
I've got the world in the palm of my hand

More ideas I've got than da Vinci
Perpetual motion would be a cinch, see
But I just got this brand new T.V.
And my couch is just so comfy

Host a show like Leno or Carson
Set the world on fire - they'd call me "arson"
Buy some speakers, sing like Clay
If my mind just wouldn't stray

But I'm easily distracted
My brain is hyperactive
My senses overloaded
My ambition has imploded

But I'm easily distracted
My brain is hyperactive
My senses overloaded
My ambition is just so dead

I Love It!
What a fun rockin' tune! Reminds me of the Dead Milkmen a wee bit. Great lyrics and the stutter in the chorus is perfect. I like the vocals and everything else.

This is the first tune of yours I've heard. Must hear more.
