"American Boy (feat. Kanye West)" as written by and Estelle Swaray Kanye West....
Just another one champion sound
Me and Estelle about to get down
Who the hottest in the world right now
Just touched down in London town
Bet they give me a pound
Tell them put the money in my hand right now
Tell the promoter we need more seats
We just sold out all the floor seats

Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA
I really want to come kick it with you
You'll be my American boy

He said 'Hey Sister'
It's really really nice to meet ya
I just met this five foot seven guy who's just my type
I like the way he's speaking his confidence is peaking
Don't like his baggy jeans but I'ma like what's underneath it
And no I ain't been to MIA
I heard that Cali never rains and New York heart awaits
First let's see the west end
I'll show you to my brethren
I'm like this American boy, American boy

Can we get away this weekend
Take me to Broadway
Let's go shopping baby maybe then we'll go to a cafe
Let's go on the subway
Take me to your hood
I neva been to Brooklyn and I'd like to see what's good
Dress in all your fancy clothes
Sneaker's looking 'fresh to def' I'm lovin' those shell toes
Walkin' that walk
Talk that slick talk
I'm likin' this American Boy, American boy

Let them know agwan blud

Who killin' 'em in the U-K
Everybody gonna to say you K
Reluctantly, because most of this press don't fuck wit me
Estelle once said to me, cool down down don't act a fool now now
I always act a fool ow ow
Ain't nothing new now now
He crazy, I know what ya thinkin'
Ribena I know what your drinkin'
Rap singer, chain blinger
Holla at the next chick soon as you're blinkin'
What's you're persona, about this American Brama
Am I shallow cause all my clothes designer
Dressed smart like a London Bloke
Before he speak his suit bespoke
And you thought he was cute before
Look at this pea coat, tell me he's broke
And I know you ain't into all that
I heard your lyrics I feel your spirit
But I still talk that ca-a-a-sh
Cause a lot wags want to hear it
And I'm feelin' like Mike at his baddest
The Pips at they Gladys and I know they love it
So to hell with all that rubbish

Would you be my love, my love
Could be mine would you be my love my love, could be mine
Could you be my love, my love
Would you be my American boy, American boy

Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day
Take me to Chicago, San Fransico Bay
I really want to come kick it with you
You'll be my American Boy
You'll be my American Boy
American Boy

    General CommentHoly shit! I love this song like no man should love a song. This will be my song for summer '08. I haven't loved a song like this since "Pon the Replay" back in '06.

    You forgot the cute bit before the rap where Estelle yells "Tell 'em wagwan, bloke!"

    General Commentsome of the lyrics are wrong,
    for one thing, it's-

    "Ribena, I know what you're drinkin'"


    Thats one I'm sure of.

    General Commentits not, 'But I still talk that C-A-A-ASH.
    Cuz a lot wacks want to hear it.'

    its
    'But I still talk that C-A-A-ASH.
    Cuz a lot WAGs want to hear it.'

    General Commentokay sorry to pick little things out but this annoys me there are many little mistakes in the lyrics, and this is an amazing song so... yes.
    they are (probly not all of them)
    1/ 'He crazy, I know what ya thinkin. White Pino I know what you're drinkin. '
    should be
    'He crazy, I know what ya thinkin. Ribena I know what you're drinkin. '

    2/ 'What's your persona. I got this American Brahma. '
    should be
    'What's your persona. About this Americana'

    3/'Cuz a lot wacks want to hear it. And I'm feelin like Mike at his Baddest.
    The Pips at they Gladys'
    should be
    Cuz a lot WAGs want to hear it. And I'm feelin like Mike at his Baddest.
    Like The PIMPs at they Gladest.


    thats all i could pick for now, but so many mistakes bud. To much of a good song for that. :)

    General Commentthe lyrics are stil wrong kids:

    Its not :
    'What's your persona. I got this American Brahma. '
    or
    'What's your persona. About this Americana'
    BUT

    'Whats your persona about this American RHYMER' (ok,i dont know if it says american or americana,i think its americana,but it def. says rhymer)

    AANDDD

    its missing the last chours,wich says :
    Take me to a trip I'd like to go someday
    Take me to Chicago, San Francisco Bay
    I really want to come kick it with you
    You'll be my American Boy
    Be my american boy .

    =)
