lyrics

MISS COMFORTABLE

She was standing on the corner,
just your average mademoiselle
She was twirling keys on her fingers
as she was talking on her cell

She stood upon stiletto heels
A silver clasp was in her hair
But in the dialogue I overheard
her voice rang with despair

"I don't wanna be rich," she said
She said, "I just wanna be comfortable"
"This bourgeois life is a bitch," she said
She said, "I just wanna be comfortable"

Hey, Miss Comfortable, where are you headed
with that ipod in your pocket and cell phone in hand?
Hey, Miss Comfortable, what's your complaining?
There are folks who'd give their lives to live the life that you have

You'd think that education
would have taught our kids to see
the difference, the clear distinction
between desire and need

But the more our lives seem to improve,
the higher standards rise
Think of all the things that we could do
if we could learn to be satisfied!

"I don't wanna be rich," she said
She said, "I just wanna be comfortable"
"This bourgeois life is a bitch," she said
She said, "I just wanna be comfortable"

Hey, Miss Comfortable, where are you headed?
There's a hot tub in your backyard and blood on your hands
Hey, Miss Comfy, the dough for that tan
could've fed forty children for four weeks on end

"I don't wanna be rich," she said
She said, "I just wanna be comfortable"
"This bourgeois life is a bitch," she said
She said, "I just wanna be comfortable"

"I don't wanna be rich
I just wanna be comfortable
This bourgeois life is bitch
I just wanna be comfortable"
