"The Kid's American" as written by and Matthew Wilder....
Rockin' with the top down (waoh)
Barrellin' down Highway 9
Picking up the same crowd (waoh)
By the exit sign

Baby, gun your cares
Paint your lipstick on 'til it shines like glass
Midnight riders, lovers, and rock and roll, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah

Got it in the blood
The kid's American
Underneath the hood you know
The kid's American
'Cause he looks so good
The kid's American
Cruising faster than he should
The kid's American

Out behind the high school (waoh)
Smoking that cigarette
Deep into the blue jeans (waoh)
And going to get deeper yet

On the night caress
Something's in the wind and it's coming fast
Hold on baby
Try to take it slow, oh no
Yeah, yeah

Got it in the blood
The kid's American
Underneath the hood you know
The kid's American
'Cause he looks so good
The kid's American
Cruising faster than he should
The kid's American
(Look out now)

Draggin' out all night
'Til there's nothing left by morning light
Driving 'til your chassis bottoms out
Oh yeah
Yeah, yeah

Got it in the blood
The kid's American
Underneath the hood you know
The kid's American
'Cause he looks so good
The kid's American
Cruising faster than he should
The kid's American

Got it in the blood
The kid's American
Underneath the hood you know
The kid's American
'Cause he looks so good
The kid's American
Cruising faster than he should
The kid's American
