The American Girl Lyrics

by Rick Springfield

You can see her walking down on a city street
The American girl, she's got the passion in her eyes
She's got the blush on her cheeks, the American girl

I love to watch her move, her body sways
She whispers, then she laughs, did you hear what she says?
I wanna know if she's talking 'bout me
Doing things her daddy can't see

The American girl, out in the dark
She's looking for love, oh, oh
The American girl, she breaks hearts
But that's not enough, she's such a mystery to me

Love is full of intrigue and full of Bogart mystique
The American girl, she's got the promise in the night
The romance in the back seat, The American girl

I love to watch her move, her body sways
She whispers then she laughs, did you hear what she says?
I wanna know if she's talking 'bout me
Doing things her daddy can't see

The American girl, out in the dark
She's looking for love, oh, oh
The American girl, she breaks hearts
But that's not enough, she's such a mystery to me

And she stares at herself in the harsh white light
And she draws in her cheeks just like the model
So unsure of herself in the big wide world
The American girl

The American girl, out in the dark
She's looking for love, oh, oh
The American girl, she breaks hearts
But that's not enough, she's such a mystery to me

The American girl, out in the dark
She's looking for love, oh, oh
The American girl, she breaks hearts
But that's not enough

The American girl, out in the dark
She's looking for love, oh, oh
The American girl, she breaks hearts
