"American Girl" as written by and Gerard/kislinger Mc Mahon....
I am a heavy metal mystery, a folk singer tragedy
I am rock and roll to the bone
I am someone who isn't me, tied to a singing tree
I got lost on my way home

I like to just dance the night away, I'd pay for my sins some other day
Some sort of godly I-O-you
I'm going to fly around the world, find my American girl
She always makes me feel brand new

If I can't feel her now, I just might run out
If I can't feel her now, who can show me what life is about?
What life is about…?

I am vivid and magical; I'm careless and practical
I've got music in my soul
I can be spectacular, I am straight laced and angular
You'd be surprised to know just what I know

I like to just sing my cares away, but I can't seem to stay away
From the joy and the gloom of her
It's all the same to me, my hair brained philosophy
Absence makes the heart go under

If I can't feel her now, I just might run out
If I can't feel her now, who can show me what life is about?
What life is about…?

I like to just dance the night away, I'd pay for my sins some other day
Some sort of godly I-O-you
I'm going to fly around the world, find my American girl
She always makes me feel brand new

If I can't feel her now, I just might run out
If I can't feel her now, who can show me what life is about?
What life is about?
