James Dean, James Dean, I know just what you mean.
And I know my life would look alright

Even if you had no cause.
And I know my life would look alright

You were just too cool for school.
The only thing that got you off was breakin' all the rules.
James Dean, James Dean, so hungry and so lean.
And I know my life would look alright

Wonderin' who he might be.
Took him down the road to eternity.
James Dean, James Dean, you bought it sight unseen.
You were too fast to live, too young to die, bye bye.
Bye bye too fast to live too young to die
Bye bye too fast to live too young to die
Too fast to live too young to die
Bye bye too fast to live too young to die
