"All-American Girl" as written by and Ashley Glenn/lovelace Gorley....
Since the day they got married,
He'd been praying for a little baby boy.
Someone he could take fishing,
Throw the football and be his pride and joy.

He could already see him holding that trophy,
Taking his team to State.
But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket,
All those big dreams changed.

And now he's wrapped around her finger,
She's the center of his whole world.
And his heart belongs to that sweet little beautiful, wonderful, perfect all-American girl.

Sixteen short years later,
She was falling for the senior football star.
Before you knew it he was dropping passes,
Skipping practice just to spend more time with her.

The coach said "Hey son, what's your problem?
Tell me, have you lost your mind?"
Daddy said "You'll lose your free ride to college.
Boy you better tell her goodbye".

But now he's wrapped around her finger,
She's the center of his whole world.
And his heart belongs to that sweet little beautiful, wonderful, perfect all-American

And when they got married and decided to have one of their own,
She said "Be honest, tell me what you want?"
And he said "Honey, you wanna know,
Sweet, little, beautiful, one just like you.
Oh, a beautiful, wonderful, perfect all-American."

Now he's wrapped around her finger,
She's the center of his whole world.
And his heart belongs to that sweet little beautiful, wonderful, perfect all-American girl
All American girl.

    General CommentThis song is so cute, I can relate because I really want a little girl someday but my boyfriend wants a boy. But he told me it'd be fine no matter what it is, but it's just funny because it's a typical story that many dad's face. I'm just wondering if the "coach" is the father of the son who the girl falls in love or not. Or just someone close to his family. And I wonder if they were getting close to having sex, because I hope that "beautiful, wonderful, perfect all-American girl" was innocent too. Lol. =P

    I bet that my dad always wanted a boy to be into cars and stuff with him, but when I came along he got a girl and a boy all in one nice neat (kinda phsycotic) pakage!!

    General CommentI like this song but one of my friends told me she was singing about herself, the first part anyway. I'm no country buff but, um... Conceited much?
