American Darling
by David Kraai

Taking your time
Crossing the line
But you're doing fine

Moving slow
And letting 'em know
You can't let go

And this world would be better
If it would just let her
Come on down and be my...
American darling

Hurting within
From that original sin
You just can't win

When everyone sees
That you're down on your knees
Begging, "Please".

And this world would feel better
If it would just let her
Come on down and be my...
American darling

Yes, America's darling
Don't need
Nothing
But her hair
Blowing free
In the wind
Of emancipation
Waiting for the world
To come along
On the song
That she's singing today

So, welcome to town
I won't let you down
But you got to stick around

To see what can be
In this land of the free
Between you and me

And this world should know better
Than to not let her
Come on down and be my...
American darling

Yes, come on down and be my...
American darling
