"To All Of You" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
To all of you
American girls, it's sad to
Imagine a world without you
American girls I'd like to
Be part of the world around you
Driving a car by the seaside
Watching the world from the bright side, yeah

To all of you, American girls in the movies
No one can tell where your heart is
American girls like dollies
With shiny smiles and plastic bodies
I wish I had an American girlfriend

I cry sometimes walking around my own place
Wondering why she cries sometimes
Talking about her own place
Somewhere around the mountains
No one could dry her fountain
Till she got tired to complain
That's when I fly to the wildland, to your land

    General CommentI just love this song!!

    Obviously the second verse is talking about the superficiality and fakeness of America and more specifically the movie industry...and how everyone hides who they truely are and are "plastic".

    I think he is being sarcastic when he says "I wish I had an American girlfriend" as he believes them to be fake.

    General CommentI LOVE this song...

    i interpreted this as he saying how classic american girls are....

    how everyone would love to be one/have one. He is in awe of this girls who have it all and are not happy...

    this is the perfect song to have on in the car, roof down along the beach front on a warm evening...

    General Commentthis song , i think is amazing. he's basically describing what we all know is true.
    that maybe these people who seem to be so spectacular and glamourous , have their problems too.
    i find that there's something ... reassuring in seeing these "american girls", who have seemingly perfect lives, because some people admire them, and they appear to be carefree, and he wants to be a part of that.
    but the truth is, they aren't.

    General CommentI cry sometimes
    walkin' around my own place
    Wondering why she cries sometimes
    Talkin' about her own place
    Somewhere around the mountains
    No one could dry her fountain
    Till she got tired to complain
    That's when I fly
    To the wild land
    To your land

    that my favorite part
    and reminds me of Marissa Cooper on the OC :)
