american woman lyrics – lenny kravitz

“american woman”
(originally by the guess who)

huh, american woman, stay away from me
american woman, mama let me be

don’t come hanging ’round my door
i don’t wanna see your face no more
i got more important things to do
than spend my time growin’ old with you

now woman, stay away
american woman, listen what i say

american woman, get away from me
american woman, mama let me be

don’t come knocking ’round my door
i don’t wanna see your shadow no more
colored lights can hypnotize
sparkle someone else’s eyes

now woman, get away
american woman, listen what i say

american woman, i said, get away
american woman, listen what i say

don’t come hanging ’round my door
don’t want to see your face no more
i don’t need your war machines
i don’t need your ghetto scenes

colored lights can hypnotize
sparkle someone else’s eyes

now woman, get away
american woman, listen what i say

american woman, stay away from me
american woman, mama let me be

i gotta go, i gotta get away
baby, i gotta go, i wanna fly away

i’m gonna leave you, woman
i’m gonna leave you, woman
i’m gonna leave you, woman
i’m gonna leave you, woman

a-bye, bye, a-bye, bye
bye bye, bye bye

(american woman)
you’re no good for me and i’m no good for you
(american woman)
i look you right straight in the eye an’ tell you what i’m gonna do

(american woman)
i’m gonna leave you woman, you know i gotta go
(american woman)
i’m gonna leave you woman, i gotta go

(american woman)
i gotta go, i gotta go american woman, yeah
