Americano

I met a girl in east LA 
In floral shorts as sweet as May 
 She sang in eigths in two Barrio chords 
We fell in love 
But not in court 
La la la la la la (x6) 

Ahhhhh -americaaaa americanoooo 
Ahhhhh -americaaaa americanoooo 

Mis canciones son de la revolucion 
Mi corazón me duele por mi generación 

If you love me 
We can marry 
On the west coast 
On a Wednesday 
En un verano 
En agosto 

I don’t speak your 
I don’t speak your 
Languagono 
I don’t speak your 
I won’t speak your 
Jesus Christo 

I don’t speak your 
I don’t speak your 
Americano 
I don’t speak your 
I won’t speak your 
Jesus Christo 

Ahhhhh-americaaaa Americanoooo 
Ahhhhh-americaaaa Americanoooo 

I will fight for 
I have fought for 
How I love you 
I have cried for  
I will die for 
How I care 
In the mountains 
Las campanas 
Están sonando 
Todos los chicos (chicas) 
Y los chicos (chicas) están besando 
I don’t speak your 
I don’t speak your 
Languagono 
I don’t speak your 
I won’t speak your 
Jesus Christo 

I don’t speak your 
I don’t speak your 
Americano 
 I don’t speak your 
I won’t speak your 
Jesus Christo 

Ahhhhh-americaaaa Americanoooo 
Ahhhhh-americaaaa Americanoooo 
Ahhhhh-americaaaa Americanoooo 

Don’t you try and catch me 
Don’t you try and catch me 
No no no no 
I’m living on the edge of 
Living on the edge of the 
Law law law law 
Don’t you try and catch me 
Don’t you try and get me 
No no no no 
I’m living on the edge of the 
Law law law law
