Dear John

Cyndi Lauper

Dear John!
What's wrong?
Why can't you just be anything you want?
Why not?
Why not?

I try to tell you then
You didn't understand
They try and pigeonhole you
Buddy, they don't even know you
But hang on my dear John, dear John
Maybe you're not just like everyone
So what, so what


And there's more to live for
Than some abbreviated encore
Much more,
Much more

You can't define yourself
In terms of someone else
You can't say what you're thinking?
But I don't know what you've been drinking
But don't cry
'Cause life goes on

Dear John, you could be anything you want!
Why not?
Why not?

Why you could be even be an astronaut
Dear John!
Dear John!
