"I'm So Stupid" is a song off Madonna's ninth studio album American Life.

Background

The song expresses disillusionment with Madonna singing "I used to live in a fuzzy dream" and "It was just greed", also proclaiming that once she was "stupider than stupid" before stating "Everybody's stupid" towards the end of the song.

Composition

The song features an introduction with a two-chord electric guitar which leads to a minor drum beat, with the guitar later changing to a three-chord. The composition throughout is generally minor, but at the 2:15 mark, different pitched synths change manically, and towards the end the synths become less prominent as the guitars become the main focus.

Lyrics

Cause I use to live
In a fuzzy dream
And I wanted to be
Like all the pretty people
I'm so stupid
Cause I use to live
In a fuzzy dream
And I use to believe
In a pretty pictures
That were all around me
But now I know for sure
That I was stupid

Please don't try to tempt me
It was just greed
And it won't protect me
Don't want my dreams
Adding up to nothing
I was just looking for
Everybody's looking for something

I'm so stupid
Cause I use to live
In a tiny bubble
And I wanted to be
Like all the pretty people
That were all around me
But now I know for sure
That I was stupid
Stupider than stupid

Stupider than stupid
Stupider than stupid

Please don't try to tempt me
It was just greed
And it won't protect me
Don't want my dreams
Adding up to nothing
I was just looking for
Everybody's looking for something

Everybody's looking for something
Everybody's stupid stupid
Everybody's looking for something
Everybody's stupid stupid
Everybody's looking for something
Everybody's stupid stupid
Everybody's looking for something
Everybody, everybody

Please don't try to tempt me
It was just greed
And it won't protect me
Don't want my dreams
Adding up to nothing
I was just looking for
Everybody's looking for something
