Lyrics[]

Play house

Put my favorite record on

Get down

Get your Crystal Method on

You were like tall, tan

Drivin' 'round the city

Flirtin' with the girls

Like, "You're so pretty."

"Springsteen is The King, don'tcha think?"

I was like, "Hell yeah, that guy can sing."


Like, "Ooo-who-whooo-ooo-ooo. Ooo-who-whooo-ooo-ohh"


You make me crazy, you make me wild

Just like a baby, spin me ' round like a child

Your skin's so golden brown

Be young, be dope, be proud

Like an American

Ooo-who-oo-who-who

Ooo-who-oo-whooo

Like an American

Ooo-who-oo-who-who

Ooo-who-oo-whooo


Drive fast

I can almost taste it now

L.A.

I don't even have to fake it now

You were like so sick

Everybody said it

You way ahead of the trend

G-get it

Elvis is the best, Hell yes

Honey, put on that party dress


Like, "Ooo-who-whooo-ooo-ooo. Ooo-who-whooo-ooo-ohh"



You make me crazy, you make me wild

Just like a baby, spin me ' round like a child

Your skin's so golden brown

Be young, be dope, be proud

Like an American

Ooo-who-oo-who-who

Ooo-who-oo-whooo

Like an American

Ooo-who-oo-who-who

Ooo-who-oo-whooo

Everybody wants to go fast

But, they can't compare

I don't really want the rest

Only you can take me there

I don't even know what I'm saying

But, I'm praying for you

You make me crazy, you make me wild

Just like a baby, spin me 'round like a child

Your skin's so golden brown

Be young, be dope, be proud

Like an American

Ooo-who-oo-who-who

Ooo-who-oo-whooo

Like an American

Ooo-who-oo-who-who

Ooo-who-oo-whooo

Like an American

Ooo-who-oo-who-who

Ooo-who-oo-whooo

Like an American

Ooo-who-oo-who-who

Ooo-who-oo-whooo

Like an American
