american boy lyrics – big head todd & the monsters

he’s an american boy with his hair combed back
he’s gonna buy himself a nice new car
he’s gonna marry one of them pretty cookin’ wives
and die alone alone in a big old house
oh, he was an american boy.

he gonna get a job that pays real well
go on vacation every year
have a fine young boy for the n.f.l.
all without having to shed a tear,
oh, he was an american boy

yea, the american boy is older now
he’s been shortened by the weight on his back
he finally takes a look around to see.
there were a lot of other things that he could have been.
oh, he was an american boy
