The Pretender

I’m going to be a happy idiot
And struggle for the legal tender

Where the ads take aim and lay their claim
To the heart and the soul of the spender

And believe in whatever may lie
In those things that money can buy

Though true love could have been a contender

Are you there?
Say a prayer for the Pretender

Who started out so young and strong
Only to surrender

==Jackson Browne, The Pretender
