"American Rock" as written by and Lawrence Hayward....
American rock ooh yeah don't you ever wonder why the whole
world's falling in love a beautiful girl walked past me yesterday I
almost fell off my stoop I said to my best friend who is that girl
he said aah she's goin' out with jake

I said that don't matter
none you know he lives over the other side of town and she
lives on our block so we put on the radio and we listened to
some american rock american rock ooh yeah don't you ever
wonder why the whole world's falling in love

I said to betsy I
said you know like er where does she hang out she said she's
got a little job uptown sees jake comes homeand helps her mom
I said she should hang around with us

I mean after all she's just
moved in on the block betsy said forget about her let's go out
tonight and listen to some american rock american rock ooh
yeah don't you ever wonder why the whole world's falling in love
he took a subway and he travelled to the other side of town he
hid in a back alley and waited for the sun to go down out of the
fading light emerged jake he said hey man come over here I
want to talk to you about your girl

let's go to a bar let's have a
beer it was a hot september night on 83rd they never made it

learned I said hey baby where do you wanna go I'll take you to
a ball game to the park or to a movie show "aah it's too hot to
move about why don't we just er stay on the block we can go

switchblades fighting in the name of love yeah that's american
rock american rock american rock american rock ooh yeah don't
you ever wonder why the whole world's falling in love falling in
love in love
