James Dean, James Dean, I know just what you mean.
James Dean, you said it all so clean
And I know my life would look alright
If I could see it on the silver screen.

You were the low down rebel if there ever was
Even if you had no cause.
James dean, you said it all so clean
And I know my life would look alright
If I could see it on the silver screen.

We'll talk about a low-down bad refrigerator,
You were just too cool for school.
Sock hop, soda pop, basketball and auto shop,
The only thing that got you off was breakin' all the rules.
