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

Don't come hangin' round 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, stay away
American woman, listen when I say

American woman, get away from me
American woman, mamma let me be

Don't come knockin' on my door
I don't wanna see your shadow no more
Colored lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes

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

American woman, I said get away
American woman, listen when I say

Don't come hangin' round my door
Don't wanna see your face no more
I don't need your warm machines
I don't need your ghetto scenes
Colored lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes

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

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

I gotta go,
I gotta get away
Babe, 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
You're no good for me
And I'm no good for you
American woman
I'm looking at you right in the eye
Tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna leave you woman
You know I gotta go
I'm gonna leave you woman
I gotta go
American woman
I gotta go
I gotta go
American woman, yeah
