Lyrics

ENGAGED IN CONVERSATION ON A LOUNGE CHAIR UP AT SKY BAR
HE SAYS "I WONDER WHAT'D IT'D COST TO BUILD A SWIM UP BAR IN MY
BACK YARD"
IMPATIENTLY SHE'S WAITING AT THE MAC COUNTER DEMANDS THE GIRL
"COULD SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE I NEED A SPICE LINER AND A PINK
FREEZE" AND HER DRESS HAS THE RIGHT HEM AND HER BROW'S GOT THE
RIGHT BEND

CHORUS

BUT AIN'T THAT SO AMERICAN
LAND OF THE LATEST TREND
HOME OF THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CONFIDENT
HONEY NOW AIN'T THAT SO AMERICAN
CAN YOU SIGN ME UP GET ME IN

HANGIN' IN THE LOBBY OF THE PARAMOUNT SHE'S CHECKING OUT
WHO'S CHECKING IN THE BIG STARS AND THE CHARLATANS
AND DOWN AT THE CHINA GRILL HE WAVES A HAND AND FOOTS THE BILL
TWO GIRLS AND A LIMOUSINE FASHIONABLY NASTY CHIC
AND HE 'S GOT PLENTY OF LINES ON HIM AND PLENTY OF YEARS ON THEM

CHORUS
BUT AIN'T THAT SO AMERICAN
LAND OF THE LATEST TREND
HOME OF THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CONFIDENT
HONEY NOW AIN'T THAT SO AMERICAN
CAN YOU SIGN ME UP GET ME IN


VERSE THREE
HE TOOK AN EXTRA JOB HE DIDN'T NEED TO LIVE ABOVE HIS CURRENT MEANS NOW HE'S GOT MONEY WITH NO TIME TO SPEND
AND SHE WASN'T BORN MODEL TALL BUT SHE'D DIE TO LOOK LIKE BRIDGET HALL SO IF IT KILLS HER SHE'S GONNA BE RUNWAY THIN IN
THE LAND OF THE IMAGE CONSCIOUS HIERARCHY
HOME OF SERIAL MONOGAMY IS IT ALL THAT IT'S CRACKED UP TO BE
WELL I'D LIKE TO SEE
WHERE NOBODY WANTS TO BE ON THE TEN WORST DRESSED
EVERYBODY'D LIKE TO SING FOR THE PRESIDENT AT HIS REQUEST
AND I BET THAT HE WOULD PICK MISS MORRISETTE I BET
AIN'T THAT SO AMERICAN
HAVE YOU DONE THE DELANO THE ROYALTON A PARTY THROWN BY SALLY QUINN DO YOU KNOW IAN SCHRAGER OR STEVE WYNN
THEN COME ON IN AND HAND ME MY MARTINI AND LET'S TOAST TO IT
IT'S RIGHT NEXT TO THE CIGAR I LIT BESIDE MY PRADA BAG
WITH LEOPARD PRINT AIN'T THAT SO AMERICAN
AND IF I'M LUCKY I MIGHT HAVE A HIT
THEN YOU'LL WONDER WHY YOU NEVER HEARD FROM ME AGAIN


CHORUS
BUT AIN'T THAT SO AMERICAN
LAND OF THE LATEST TREND
HOME OF THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CONFIDENT
HONEY NOW AIN'T THAT SO AMERICAN
BUT I'M GLAD I AM SO AMERICAN
