As a boy my daddy told me, I could be anything I wanted to be
Don't sit here watching your life go by, go out and give the world a try
So as I grew the list did too, of all the things I would someday to do
Someday I'd take the world by storm, I'd never quite I'd never conform
I'll have women and I'll have lust, free to fly and shake the dust
I'll have fortune and the fame, travel the world and back again
Yeah someday I'd do it all, when I grow strong and I grow tall
Someday everybody will wish they were me, someday, soon you'll see

As the years rolled slowly past, someday had come at last
But too damn afraid to make a mistake, I couldn't choose a path to take
Never knowing which way was right, I'd put someday off another night
And everyday I grew a little older, and everyday my dreams grew colder

Now I think it's safe to say that I'm wasting my life away
Between television and my indecision I got nothing to show for my day
My cheap whiskey, words and women are rarely worth the cost of livin
And if I don't change my worthless ways I won't be no better than I am these days

I was sitting here in my room with my guitar pickin a tune
When a thought had come into my head and filled it full of fear and dread
I could not help but realize that the time has passed before my eyes
And my someday plans had come and gone, and, left me hear to carry on
I felt as low as I could be, I thought how could this happen to me
I had hopes and I had schemes, I had plans and I had dreams
But looking back upon my days, among the hubbub and the haze
I see the folly in my form, causing failure and forlorn
I wanted women and wanted lust, free to fly and shake the dust
I wanted fortune and the fame, travel the world and back again
But I got porno and sticky fingers, when I sneeze the dust still lingers
Until it settles back on my mobile home while I watch the TV shows alone
Man I love reality TV, I can watch someone else and imagine it's me
I get to see the world while I sit and slouch on my favorite fold out couch
I got like five hundred channels full other's affairs
So I can spend my life watching them live their's
There's a mini frig next to where I sit
So I don't have to miss any of it.
Most restaurants have delivery so I can have my food brought right to me
I got a computer that connects worldwide, these days I barely have to go outside.
They got dating sites all over this net, I've been try'n em all to see what I get
I can talk to a woman sitting in her home so I won't have to be alone
