Mike Ness/Dennis Danell)

I wanted a vintage Harley
My style-
I wanted a house with a yard
I wanted a pocket full of money and
A wardrobe of clothes with style
Because I want what I want

CHORUS
You mean this great big world
And I want it now
Doesn't revolve around me?
Sittin' low, chromed and shiny black

But then somebody told me

I wanted a '55 Cadillac
CHORUS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------The best things in life aren't things
