Although Kathleen Hanna modified Noise Addict’s original lyrics just a wee bit, it’s still so perfect and embodies what it meant to be a cool boy in the 90’s.

I know it sounds stupid when I say it out loud
like I’m just jealous of his silver cloud
he looks so good he drinks diet coke
he gets his magazines sent by air and not boat

I wish I was him
he gets the girls at his feet
with all his cool friends
he gets his records for free
I wish I was him
he has no enemies
I wish I was him

he’s got six different flannel shirts
airwalks not thongs
he even understands the words to pavement songs
he’s got his new guitar toys
he likes mud and the beastie boys

I wish I was him
he gets the girls at his feet
with all his cool friends
he gets his records for free
I wish I was him
he has no enemies
I wish I was him

I feel much better now
I’ve let it all out
he’s got big biceps and a
masculine shout
I’m not trying to sound like i’m
trying to be mean
but he thinks he can be a girl better then me

I wish I was him
he gets the girls at his feet
with all his cool friends
he gets his records for free
I wish I was him
he has no enemies
I wish I was him

I wish I waaaaas him
