Well, 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

Chorus:
Oh yeah, alright,
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl.

Well, it was kind of cold that night,
She stood alone on the balcony
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by,
Out on four forty one like

Waves crashing on the beach,
And for one des'rate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God, it's so painful when something that's so close
Is still so far out of reach

Chorus:
Oh yeah, alright,
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl.

Oooh Hoo, Oooh Hoo, Oooh

Oh yeah, alright,
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night

Oh yeah, alright,
Take it easy, baby, Oh
Take it easy now now.

Oh yeah, alright,
You were an American girl.
