Song Description

A young girl at a Soho bar imagines been loved, and a fairytale ending with an American lad.

Story Behind the Song

American Boy was inspired by Heidi, who sings it, and her naive teenage years. I was in Soho, and imagined her in a pub/club, at a corner table....a lad at the bar instantly catching her attention... The ending is deliberately open. They may or may not have a chance... What many industry figures have said is just how transatlantic in appeal this track is.

Lyrics

Saw you out in Soho,
Saw you at the bar,
Don't know if you noticed,
I watched from afar.
You were drinking cola,
Least that's how it looked,
Guess it might be guiness
(Never liked that stuff)

I could
Love you

Will you be my American boy?
We could have such fun and joy,
Will you be my American boy?
I'd like that, I so would

Wanted to go over,
Make excuse to talk,
Never been my strong thing,
Legs to weak to walk.
Found I couldn't stand now
- head was all mixed up,
Had to keep on watching,
Hope I'd get some luck.

I could
Love you

Will you be my....

(Instrumentation)

Will you be my....
