you've got exactly sixty seconds
to tell me what you meant by that
one short minute to apologize
you've got exactly sixty seconds
to tell me what you meant by that
i hear the murder rate is on the rise

i'm in love, but i do not speak the language
i'm in love, but i don't understand
i'm in love, and i do not speak the language
but i try to speak the language of this foreign land

(chorus)
here i am, stupid american
here i am
here i am, stupid american
here i am

you've got exactly sixty seconds
to take back that stupid question
a baguette doesn't come with a bag
you've got exactly sixty seconds
to take back that stupid question
it's called a baguette, don't you get it-get it

i'm in love, but i do not speak the language
i'm in love, but i don't understand
i'm in love, and i do not speak the language
when i try to speak the language
it comes out sounding like

(chorus)

his heart is italy
his kiss is paris
his body is brazilian
my heart is...my heart is
oklahoma
oklahoma

you've got exactly sixty seconds
to kiss me like a european
one short minute to show me how
you've got exactly sixty seconds
to love me like a spy
i've seen those foreign films
do it-do it now

i'm in love, with a man who says "te amo"
i'm in love, he calls me "ma petite chou-chou"
i'm in love, and i try to speak the language
but i can't understand a single word he's saying

(chorus)
(chorus)
