Rocket Summer – Japanese Exchange Student lyrics

I might as well be a Japanese exchange student,
'Cause people wouldn't know me, right when I show up.
But then the thrill wears off, and then I'm alone.
Until Beyoncй rolls through town,
And I think that I can call and score a ticket,
When I can't.

'Cause I don't know her, like you don't know me.
It's a lonely world, when it's all that you see.
It doesn't matter if I got a good heart in me.
This gets lonely.

I might as well be a Japanese exchange student,
'Cause people wouldn't know me, right when I show up.
But then the thrill wears off, and then I'm alone.
Until Paul McCartney rolls through town,
And I think that I can get in on the guest list,
When I can't.

'Cause I don't know him like you don't know me.
It's a lonely thing, when it's all that you see.
It doesn't matter if I got a good heart in me.
This gets lonely.

Last year I got the cover,
My phone wouldn't stop ringing and ringing.
They called in on my mother, and that is saying something.
Well maybe it's been quiet, my phone just picks up dust.
'Cause it's all about who you know,
And not about if you really know anyone.

So, hey, be nice to the Japanese exchange students,
'Cause people wouldn't know them, right when they show up,
And they have found yourself in a similar place,
Where you found, you looked around,
And just saw loads of empty space.
And you were thinking how you don't know them,
Like they don't know you.
It's a lonely feeling, after all that you do.
Got a good heart, got a good soul,
What must I do to prove it anymore?
I got friends in high and low places,
And it's all the same to me.

I love the Japanese, I love the Japanese,
Those from Japan and overseas.
I love the Japanese, do you love the Japanese?
Those from Japan and overseas,
And those from Japan and overseas, like me.
