(As recorded by the Guess Who)
RANDY C. BACHMAN
BURTON CUMMINGS
JIM KALE
GARY PETERSON

American woman gonna mess your mind
American woman she gonna mess your mind
Mm, american woman gonna mess your mind
Mm, american woman gonna mess your mind
I say A, I say M, I say E, I say R, say I, use C, say A, N, um
American woman gonna mess your mind
Mm, American woman gonna mess your mind
Ooo, American woman gonna mess your mind.

Ooo
American woman, stay away from me
American woman, mama let me be
Don't come a-hangin' around my door
I don't wanna see your face no more
I got more important things to do
Than spend my time growin' old with you
Now woman, I said stay away
American woman, listen what I say-ay-ay-ay.

American woman, get away from me
American woman, mama let me be
Don't come a-knockin' around my door
Don't wanna see your shadow no more
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now woman, I said get away
American woman, listen what I say-ay-ay-ay.

American woman, said get away
American woman, listen what I say
Don't come a-hangin' around my door
Don't wanna see your face no more
I don't need your war machines
I don't need your ghetto scenes
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now woman, get away from me
American woman, mother let me be.

Go gotta get away
Go gotta get away now go, go, go
I'm gonna leave you woman
Gonna leave you woman
Bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye

You're no good for me
I'm no good for you
Gonna look you right in the eye
Tell you what I'm gonna do
You know I'm gonna leave
You know I'm gonna go
You know I'm gonna leave
You know I'm gonna go, woman
I'm gonna leave, woman
Goodbye American woman
Goodbye American chick
Goodbye American broad.
