He's drivin' a jeep but he ain't in the army
Gets all his cigarette money from his mommy
Dressed like a rootin' tootin' Texas cowboy
But this Lone Ranger's never seen a horse

He wanna be Americano
Americano, Americano
He wants to drive a Cadillac
Ooh, he's chasing showgirls
Smokin' Camels, whiskey and soda
Now he's never goin' back

He's cruisin' streets for gold
Dressed in designer clothes
Brother if you're too slow
You'd better not blink
Or you'll wind up in the drink

Wanna be Americano
Americano, Americano
Gotta buy a diamond ring
'Cause that's his baby's favorite thing
Okay, all right, yeah man
Wanna be American
Wanna be American

He's in the land where anything can happen
Reach for the stars, grab that golden ring
Just remember he's Americano
Well, watch it pal 'cause he'll take everything

He wanna be Americano
Americano, Americano
He wants to drive a Cadillac
Ooh, now he's chasing showgirls
Smokin' Camels, whiskey and soda
Now he's never goin' back

He likes that rock and roll
He's playing baseball
Loves Marilyn Monroe
A Coca-Cola Joe and a pizza pie to go

Wanna be Americano
Americano, Americano
Gotta buy a diamond ring
'Cause that's his baby's favorite thing
Okay, all right, yeah man
Wanna be American
Wanna be American
Wanna be American, hey!
