lyrics

I think it's time for me to settle down
Raise me a family out in some little town
With an American Woman, one who treats me right
Well, American Woman, where can I find one tonight?

Cause I don't want no LA queen
I want something real, if you know what I mean
I want 'Merican Woman, who knows her wrong from right
Well, American Woman, I think I'm seeing the light

A honky tonk angel who sings like a bird
Tells me loving things that I never heard
Born and bred in the US of A
American Woman, take my freedom away

I like a woman who wants to laugh and get drunk
And I don't mind a little junk in the trunk
If you're 'Merican Woman and you can dance all night
Well, American Woman, where can I see you tonight?

And I don't want no Paris dame
Cause after a while, they all sound the same
I want 'Merican Woman, a girl who knows how to fight
Well, American Woman, I think I'm seeing the light
