Play house, put my favorite record on
Get down, get your crystal method on
You were like dark tan driving round the city
Flirting with the girls like you're so pretty
Springsteen is the king don't you think
I was like, "hell yeah that guy can sing"

Like ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, whoa

You make me crazy, you make me wild.
Just like a baby, spin me 'round like a child.
Your skin so golden brown
Be young, be dope be proud.
Like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Drive fast, I can almost taste it now.
LA, I don't even have to fake it now.
You're like so sick, everybody said it
You're way ahead of the trend ge-get it.
Elvis is the best, hell yes.
Honey put on that party dress

Like ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, whoa

You make me crazy, you make me wild.
Just like a baby, spin me 'round like a child.
Your skin so golden brown
Be young, be dope be proud.
Like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Everybody wants to go fast but they cant compare
I don't really want the rest, only you can take me there
I don't eve 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 so golden brown
Be young, be dope be proud.
Like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, like an American.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, like an American.
