Darling, I'm afraid to close my eyes when I'm going to bed
I'm afraid you'll crack the phone down over my head

Why are all American girls so rough?
Damn, that girl can't ever hurt you enough

Lady (lady), you knock me on my knees and I can't stand up
You got the look in your eye and you smack my butt

Why are all American girls so rough?
Why do all American girls act so tough?
Why are all American girls so rough?

Darling, I'm afraid to close my eyes when I'm goin to bed
I'm afraid you'll crack the phone down over my head

Why are all American girls so rough?
Damn, that girl can't ever hurt you enough

Lady (lady), you knock me on my knees and I can't stand up
You got that look in your eye and you smack my butt

Why are all American girls so rough?
Why do all American girls act so tough?
Why are all American girls so rough?

That hole you're digging in my ribs
It ain't no real wound
So baby take it easy
Let's try to be friends

Why are all American girls so rough?
Damn, that girl can't ever hurt you enough

Lady (lady), you knock me down on my knees and I can't stand up
You got the look in your eye, you smack my butt

Why are all American girls so rough?
Why do all American girls act so tough?
Why are all American girls so rough?

American girls
American girls
Why are all American girls so rough?
American girls
American girls
American girls
Why are all American girls so rough?
American girls
American girls
American girls
Why are all American girls so rough?
Why are all American girls so rough?

    General CommentEveryone is not far off. It is a Weezer and Soul Coughing collaboration also featuring Greg Brown of Cake on electric (lead) guitar. The band name for the song was called "Homie." The most notable recording is the "Meet the Deedles" soundtrack. And yes, it is a damn cool song.

    General CommentIt sounds like Rivers to me...he has a really distinct voice...and thats who it sounds like to me
    I like this song by the way...very nice beat and the songs pretty funny to boot...soul coughings normal stuff usually has a cool beat but shitty vocals but with Rivers Singing they kick

    General CommentIt is definately Rivers on the vocals, I worked security backstage at a Weezer concert this past summer and was talking with the drummer, Pat Wilson, and I brought up some of the songs that claim to be by Weezer, this one being my favorite, and he set me straight, you guys all had it figured out, good job, I just thought I would give a little conformation to the arguement on if it is actually Rivers singing or not.
