American woman, stay away from me
American woman, mama, let me be

Don't come hanging 'round my door
I don't want to see your face no more
I got more important things to do
Than spend my time growin' old with you

Now woman, stay away
American woman, listen what I say

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
Sparkle someone else's eyes

Now woman, get away
American woman, listen what I say

American woman, I said get way
American woman, listen what I say

Don't come hanging around my door
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
American woman, listen what I say
American woman, stay away from me
American woman, mama ,let me be

I gotta go, I gotta get away
Think I gotta go, I wanna fly away

I'm gonna leave you woman
I'm gonna leave you woman
I'm gonna leave you woman
I'm gonna leave you woman

Bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye

(American woman)
And you're no good for me
And I'm no good for you
(American woman)
I look you right straight in the eye
And tell you what I'm gonna do

(American woman)
I'm gonna leave you woman
You know I gotta go
(American woman)
I'm gonna leave you woman
I gotta go, I gotta go
(American woman)

I gotta go
American woman, yeah
