Lyrics

American Girl

Written By: Tom Petty

American Girl.........Tom Petty

She was an American Girl Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinkin' that There was a little more to life Somewhere else
After all it was a great big world With lots of places to run to

And if she had to die trying she Had one little promise She was gonna keep

Oh yeah, all right take it easy baby Make it last (make it last all night)
She was an American Girl

Well it was kind of cold that night She stood alone on her balcony
Yeah she could here the cars roll by At old four forty one
Like a waves crashin' on the beach

And for one desperate moment there He crept back to her memory

God it's so painful For something to be so close
And still so far out of reach

Oh yeah, all right take it easy baby Make it last (make it last all night)
She was an American Girl

Build Me Up Buttercup

Written By: ?

Build Me Up Buttercup....

Why do you build me up Buttercup baby just to
Let me down and mess me around and then
Worst of all You never call baby when you
Say you will But I love you still I need
You more than anyone darlin' you
Know that I have from the start so
Build me up buttercup Don't break my heart

I'll be over at ten you told me
Time and again but your late I wait around and then
I run to the door I can't take any more it's not you
You let me down again

Hey, hey, hey Baby baby try to find
A little time and I'll make you mine
I'll be home, I'll be be side the phone
Waitin' for you Ohh Ohh

Chorus

You were my toy but I Could be the boy you adore
If you'd just let me know
Although your untrue I'm Attracted to you all the more
Why do I need ya so

King Of The Road

Written By: Roger Miller

King Of The Road.........Roger Miller

Trailer for sale or rent, Homes to let for fifty cent
No phone no pool no pets, I aint got no cigarettes
But two hours of pushin broom
Buys an eight buy twelve four bit room
I'm a man of means by no means, King of The Road

Third box car midnight train, Destination Bangor Maine
Old worn out suit and shoes, I don't pay no union dues
I smoke old stogies that I've found, Short but not too big around
I'm a man of means by no means, King of the Road

(Solo over Verse)

I know every engineer on every train, All the children all there names
And every hand out in every town, And every lock that aint locked
when no ones around

I sing Trailer for sale or rent, Homes to let for fifty cent
No phone no pool no pets, I aint got no cigarettes
But two hours of pushin broom
Buys an eight buy twelve four bit room
I'm a man of means by no means, King of The Road

I Want You Back

Written By: Michael Jackson

I Want You Back......Michael Jackson

When I had you to myself I didn't want you around
Pretty faces always made you Stand out in a crowd

Someone picked you from the bunch One glance was all it took
Now it's just to late for me To take a second look

Ohh baby give me one more chance To show you that I love you
Wont you please let me back in your heart
Ohh baby I was blind to let you go Let you go baby
Now since I see you in his arms

I Want You Back Yes I do now
I Want You Back
I Want You Back
I Want You Back

Tryin' to live without your love
Is like one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl I Know wrong from right
Every street I walk down
Has got tear stains on the ground
Followin' the girl I didn't want around
