American woman gonna mess your mind
American woman gonna mess your mind
American woman gonna mess your mind

American woman, stay away from me
American woman, mama let me be
Don’t come 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

American woman, get away from me
American woman, mama let me be
Don’t come knockin’ around my door
I 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

American woman, I said get away
American woman, listen what I say
Don’t come hangin’ around my door
I 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, mama let me be

Go, gotta get away
Now go go go
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. The Guess Who – American Woman

  1. Ok , the band Krokus made their version of this song , and I think it kicks ass . yet they would have never done this song if'n the Guess Who didn't make it … What Tha ???

  2. The lyrics tell a different story:"American woman,Said get away ,don't commin hangin around my door, don't wanna see your face no more .I don't want your war machines, don't wanna see yourghetto scenes . Colour lights can hypnotize, sparkle someone else's eyes."
    The song was written during the Vietnam War to put into context. ..
