American Dreamer Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Autumns child is catchin hell
For having been too nave to tell
Property rights from chapel bells

Theres nothing we can do
We could not get there in time
Its too late, she signed on the dotted line

Oh, shoot em up cops and robbers
Oh, America

The manager smiled
He said, Were gonna straighten this mess
He had a picture of Spot and Jane on his desk
So I signed his strange contract with the transparent lines

Theres nothing we can do
We could not get there in time
Its too late, she signed on the dotted line

Oh, shoot em up cops and robbers
Oh, America, America

The lawyers cried through the telephone rings
The doctors sighed, Shes imagining things
When he came through the window with those crazy eyes

Dick Tracy in disguise
He said, You need a guiding hand
Youre soft and youre fine, sign here on the dotted line

Oh, big deals, cops and robbers
Oh, America
I am your rose American dreamer
Flyin high and down through America

Oh, American dreamer, oh, America
Didnt you know American dreamer?
Flyin high and down through America
America, America, America, America
