American woman stay away from me
American Woman mama let me be
Don’t come hanging around my door
I don’t want to see your face No more
I got more important things to do
Then spend my time growing old with you
American Woman get away from me
American woman mama let me be
Don’t come knocking around my door
I don’t want to see your shadow no more

Colored lights can hypnotize
Go and sparkle someone else’s eyes
Now woman I said get away
American woman listen what I say
American woman I said get away
American woman listen what I say
Don’t come hanging around my door
I don’t want to 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

Go, gotta get away, gotta get away
Now go go go
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 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 know I’m gonna go, woman
I’m gonna leave, woman
Goodbye, American Woman
