American woman, stay away from me 
American woman, mama let me be 
Don’t come hangin’ around 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, I said stay away, 
American woman, listen what I say. 
 
American woman, get away from me 
American woman, mama let me be 
Don’t come knockin’ around my door 
Don’t wanna see your shadow no more 
Coloured lights can hypnotize 
Sparkle someone else’s eyes 
Now woman, I said get away 
American woman, listen what I say. 
 
American woman, said get away 
American woman, listen what I say 
Don’t come hangin’ around my door 
Don’t wanna see your face no more 
I don’t need your war machines 
I don’t need your ghetto scenes 
Coloured lights can hypnotize 
Sparkle someone else’s eyes 
Now woman, get away from me 
American woman, mama let me be. 
 
Go, gotta get away, gotta get away 
Now go go go 
Gonna leave you, woman 
Gonna leave you, woman 
Bye-bye 
Bye-bye 
Bye-bye 
Bye-bye 
You’re no good for me 
I’m no good for you 
Gonna look you right in the eye. 
Tell you what I’m gonna do 
You know I’m gonna leave 
You know I’m gonna go 
You know I’m gonna leave 
You know I’m gonna go, woman 
I’m gonna leave, woman 
Goodbye, American woman 
Goodbye, American chick 
Goodbye, American broad ...
