Well I could try to be a football stud
If that’s what you wanted
Work out in the gym all day
My muscles flexing
And, baby, you could come to my games
And wear my letter jacket and look so cute

But I just can’t be like that
It’s not who I am
But you don’t have to change
You don’t have to change
‘Cause perfection just reeks of you

Well I could try to be a French artiste
If that’s what you wanted
“Bonjur,” I’d say at the door to your apartment
As we’d dine with a glass of wine in a small café
Before dining on the banks of the River Seine


Well I’ve just gotta be me, me, me
Me, me, me
Me, me, me

Well I could try to be a reckless outlaw
If that’s what you wanted
Sweep you away on a motorcycle
Wear my black leather boots
As we’d ride off into the sunset
Your hair flying in the wind


from Love Letters In Latin (25th Anniversary Edition), released June 28, 1996
