Verse:
                 Fm            Ab
This is where I broke my wrist
           Eb             Bbm7
Where I thought I could fly
                Fm      Ab
Thinking I was Superman
         Eb             Bbm7
So you know you can't cry
                      Fm            Ab
Cause I wanted to be just like them
             Eb             Bbm7
And save my city from crime
                Db              Eb                       Fm
I wanted to be just like them, just like them, just like, them
 
 
                    Fm            Ab
Campbell's chicken noodle soup
           Eb             Bbm7
When you stay home from school
                 Fm            Ab
Remember watching MTV
                       Eb             Bbm7
When there was still music for you
                Fm            Ab
Just a kid on Cholla Street
              Eb             Bbm7
From my city built in the sand
                       Db              Eb                Fm
My father said "you'll be a man, be a man, be a man"
 
Chorus:
Fm Db    Ab      Eb
I... was born in 1994

Verse:
                       Fm            Ab
I guess Santa Claus is just not real
     Eb             Bbm7
And Batman can't fly
                 Fm            Ab
And nobody’s invincible
           Eb             Bbm7
Because I know people die
                 Fm            Ab
I saw it on the news one day
           Eb             Bbm7
When the towers fell down
                     Db              Eb                       Fm
September's not the same place now, same place now, same place, now
 

                     Fm            Ab
Now tell me who you wanna be
             Eb             Bbm7
Because you grow up too fast
                 Fm            Ab
Cut my hair and sag my jeans
           Eb             Bbm7
And never show up to class
                     Fm            Ab
Get ready cause it's time to leave
    Eb             Bbm7
So pack up your bags
                   Db              Eb             Fm
And go be who you wanna be, wanna be, wanna be

In 1994

My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty

My country tis of thee, be who you wanna be
