American Woman Lyrics

American woman, stay away from me
American woman, mama let me be
Don't come hanging around my door
I don't want to 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 around my door
I don't want to 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 way
American woman, listen what I say
Don't come hanging around 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 getta away
Think I gotta go
I want to 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

Bye bye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye
American woman
You're no good for me

And I'm no good for you
(American woman) I'm looking at you right in the eye
I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
(American woman) I'm gonna leave you woman

You know I gotta go
I'm gonna leave you woman
I gotta go
(American woman) I gotta go

I gotta go
American woman
Yeah

Thoughts & Meanings

This is actually a cover version of The Guess Who's song. Kravitz made it heavier with a catchy beat and most people seem to love this version. When you listen to the lyrics though it's more political and not at all flattering towards Americans!
