Well, she was an American girl,Raised on promisesShe couldn't help thinking that there was a little more lifeSomewhere elseAfter all it was a great big worldWith lots of places to run toAnd if she had to dieTryin', sheHad one little promise she was gonna keep
Oh yeah,oh alright,Take it easy, babyMake it last all nightShe was... an American girl.
Well, it was kind of cold that night,She stood alone on the balconyYeah, she could hear the cars roll by,Out on four forty one likeWaves crashing on the beach,And for one des'rate moment thereHe crept back in her memoryGod, it's so painful when something that's so closeIs still so far out of reach
Oh yeah,oh alright,Take it easy, babyMake it last all nightShe was an American girl.
Oh yeah,oh alright,Take it easy, babyMake it last all night
Oh yeah,oh alright,Take it easy, babyOh,Take it easy,now,now...
Oh yeah,oh alright,there worlds...American Girl
