Lyrics

She was American
She played a mean hand
She had blond hair, blue eyes
She was a master of disguise
She said "I love you guys"
She said "I like your french fries"
She's a disease and she does as she pleases

Boy meets girl
Girl gets boy
Boy loses girl
Ship ahoy

She was American
She had a master plan
Because lots of people wanna look a little bit like her
Said "I don't believe in Psychiatry
If you need a doctor then come up and see me"

Boy meets girl
Girl gets boy
Boy loses girl
Ship ahoy

Bah bah bahhhhhhhh yeah!
Bah bah bahhhhhhhh yeah!
Bah bah bahhhhhhhh yeah!
Bah bah bahhhhhhhh yeah yeah yeah!

Boy buys gun
Girl buys toy
Boy meets man
Ship ahoy

Boy gets girl!
Girl gets boy!
Boy loses girl!
OH!
Ship ahoy!

Boy buys gun!
