Why can't you just be anything you want?
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
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 you could be even be an astronaut
