When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

[Guess Who version]

American woman gonna mess your mind

American woman, she gonna mess your mind

Um ... American woman gonna mess your mind

Um ... American woman gonna mess your mind

I say A, I say M, I say E, I say R, I say I, and C,I say A, N

Um...American woman gonna mess your mind

Um...American woman gonna mess your mind...Uhh

American woman gonna mess your mind

Uhh...

American woman, stay away from me

American woman, mama let me be

Don’t come a hangin' around my door

I don’t wanna see your face no more

I got more important things to do

Than spend my time growin' old with you

Now woman, I said, stay away,

American woman, listen what I say..hey...hey...hey

 

American woman, get away from me

American woman, mama let me be

Don’t come a knockin' around my door

Don’t wanna see your shadow no more

Colored lights can hypnotize

Sparkle someone else’s eyes

Now woman, I said get away

American woman, listen what I say...hey...hey...hey

 

American Woman, said get away

American Woman, listen what I say...hey

Don’t come a hangin' around my door

Don’t wanna see your face no more

I don’t need your war machines

I don’t need your ghetto scenes

Colored lights can hypnotize

Sparkle someone else’s eyes

Now woman, get away from me

 

American woman, mama let me be

No, gotta get away

Gotta gotta get away ... now, no, no, no

I’m gonna leave you woman

I’m gonna leave you woman

Gonna leave you woman

Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye-bye

You’re no good for me

I’m no good for you

Gonna look at you right in the eye

Tell you what I’m gonna do

You know I’m gonna leave, you know I’m gonna go

You know I’m gonna leave,

You I'm gonna go, woman

I’m gonna leave you woman
