I might as well be a Japanese exchange student
'Cause people wouldn't know me right when I show up
But then the thrill wears off and then I'm alone
Until Beyonce rolls through town and I think
That I can call and score a ticket when I can't

'Cause I don't know her like you don't know me
It's a lonely world when it's all that you see
It doesn't matter if I got a good heart in me
This gets lonely

I might as well be a Japanese exchange student
'Cause people wouldn't know me right when I show up
But then the thrill wears off and then I'm alone
Until Paul McCartney rolls through town
And I think that I can get in on the guest list, when I can't

'Cause I don't know him like you don't know me
It's a lonely thing when it's all that you see
It doesn't matter if I got a good heart in me
This gets lonely

Last year I got the cover, my phone wouldn't stop ringing and ringing
They called in on my mother and that is saying something
Well, maybe it's been quiet, my phone just picks up dust
'Cause it's all about who you know and not about if you really know anyone

So, hey, be nice to the Japanese exchange students
'Cause people wouldn't know them right when they show up
And they have found yourself in a similar place
Where you found you looked around and just saw loads of empty space
And you were thinking how

You don't know them like they don't know you
It's a lonely feeling after all that you do
Got a good heart, got a good soul, what must I do to prove it anymore
I got friends in high and low places and it's all the same to me

I love the Japanese, I love the Japanese
Those from Japan and overseas
I love the Japanese, do you love the Japanese?
Those from Japan and overseas
Those from Japan and overseas like me
