American Girl (Everclear) sözleri

Everclear tarafından Good Time For A Bad Attitude albümünde söylenen American Girl adlı şarkının sözleri.

She was an american girl
Raised on promises
She couldn’t help thinking that there was a little more to life
Somewhere else
After all it was a great big world
With lots of places to run to
And if she had to die tryin’
She had one little promise she was gonna keep

Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an american girl

It was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on the balcony
She could hear the cars roll by
Out on four forty one like waves crashing on the beach
And for one desperate moment there
She crept back in her memory
God, it’s so painful when something that’s so close
Is still so far out of reach

Chorus

Darling, I'm afraid to close my eyes when I'm going to bed
I'm afraid you'll crack the phone down over my head

Why are all American girls so rough?
Damn, that girl can't ever hurt you enough

Lady (lady), you knock me on my knees and I can't stand up
You got the look in your eye and you smack my butt

Why are all American girls so rough?
Why do all American girls act so tough?
Why are all American girls so rough?

That hole you're digging in my ribs
It ain't no real wound
So baby take it easy
Let's try to be friends

Well she was an american girl
Raised on promises
She couldn’t help thinkin that there
Was a little more to life
Somewhere else
After all it was a great big world
With lots of places to run to
Yeah, an d if she had to die

Like waves crashin’ in the beach
And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God it’s so painful
Something that’s so close
And still so far out of reach

Oh yeah, all right

American Girl (Brooke Valentine) sözleri

Brooke Valentine tarafından Chain Letter albümünde söylenen American Girl adlı şarkının sözleri.

I'm watchin' day time TV
I'm young and I'm restless
I'm on no sunset beach
I'm burnin' up in here in Texas

Paranoia on day street
Not enough to eat
Too many burgers and these fries
Are makin' me crazy

It's kinda strange growin' up here
Never less safe but don't be afraid
You gotta take what you get here
'Cause nobodies gonna change their ways

Many places to travel in this world
No matter where I go I'm an American girl
This Disney World's your underworld
Try to escape it just face it you American girl

We all have the same dream
We wake up on a reality series
In a taxi cab confessing
We're having to much 'Sex in the City'

With our pre-paid cellular phones we call apartment homes
By the time we're 14 yeah were already grown
Where we'll end up from here well we don't really care
Well we tear up every thing, we still love to be here

Many places to travel in this world
No matter where I go I'm an American girl
Is this Disney Worlds your underworld
Try to escape it just face it you American girl

Many places to travel in this world
No matter where I go I'm an American girl
Is this Disney Worlds your underworld
Try to escape it just face it you American girl

From hooters to looters
We're drowning in beer
Your ruder I'm cruder
Your blurred and I'm clear

Your not helping me here
'Cause we're living in fear
I'm not judging you
But I'll push you and push you

Many places to travel in this world
No matter where I go I'm an American girl
Is this Disney Worlds your underworld
Try to escape it just face it you American girl

Many places to travel in this world
No matter where I go I'm an American girl
Is this Disney Worlds your underworld
Try to escape it just face it you American girl

American Girl (Virgin Steele) sözleri

Virgin Steele tarafından albümünde söylenen American Girl adlı şarkının sözleri.

[1st verse:]
When you see her walking down the street
Don't look at her that way
She ain't no fool, she ain't no easy lay
Just get out of her way

Don't try to call her she's never home
She don't like being alone
Ain't got no chains she's got to be free
That's the way it should be

[Chorus:]
Not another face on your T.V. screen
Not another girl in your magazine
Not another part of your porno dreams
She's your next door neighbor
An American girl

[Bridge:]
She's an American girl
She's an American girl

[2nd verse:]
So keep your sweet talk and your phony smiles
She hears them all the time
We're sick and tired of playing this game
Ooh - we're going insane

[Chorus:]
Not another face on your T.V. screen
Not another girl in your magazine
Not another part of your porno dreams
She's your next door neighbor
An American girl

[Bridge:]
She's an American girl
She's an American girl

[Fadeout:]
Lookout, ooh yeah
You're never gonna let her
Ah yeah, she blows you away
Ooh, here we go
Just an American girl
