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 can't 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
