I'm not cool And nobody would want me that way I'm just a regular guy In an insane world Don't worry bout me I'll be OK
It was a picture perfect day I hit the freeway in LA Driving a car you'd only see in a movie
Became my once and future self With all the style and the wealth Surrounded by the people who wanna use me
And then it came an epiphany From somewhere out of the car I never saw him crash into me But I know how I got home In a tow truck all alone Now I know
I went out drinking in New York With bottle service just for sport Pretending I was living life like a hero
Flashing the labels on my clothes Trying to keep up with the bros Talking bout bank accounts and leaving off zeros
And when that bill came I could not breathe Never saw numbers that high So much for living in infamy Acting flush was not that hard Till I maxed out all my cards Now I know
Cool people maybe they're just born with it They know the trends before they're here And I'm sick of trying cause they're no denying That's there's nothing cool about my atmosphere

The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
