Land of Snow

BandPopAdult Contemporary

This song is track 8 on the Land of Snow CD and was composed by Eddie Purcell who founded the group. The song was inspired by a trip to Italy where I met a very beautiful Italian girl who expressed her desire to travel but was somewhat frustrated by the wages of her present occupation working in a Pizzeria. I thought of similar situations in other countries and believe there will be a similar American girl with the same frustrations. It would be lovely to revisit one day and perhaps have enough

Lyrics

Great American Girl

Written By: Ed Purcell

Great Italian girl
Working in a pizzeria wants to see the world
But for now she cannot go far
Saving all her euros to follow that star
Great Italian girl
Serving all the people with a beautiful smile
Knowing when she gets on that plane
She forgets everything cos it’s all worthwhile
Great Italian girl
Stay in my world
Stay in my world

Chorus

Up in the morning
Walking past vineyards
Sees the wind in her hair
But she don’t have time
Cos she’s waitin for Romeo
With his roses and crimes
Up in the morning
Facing the same day
Breathes the outside
But she’s got her pride
Until one life
Goes her own way
Great Italian girl
Stay in my world
Stay in my world

Great American girl
Working in a downtown diner
Wants to save the world
But for now she cannot go far
Serving all day breakfast in a downtown bar
Listening to the same old talk
She wants to throw the coffee pots
Onto the sidewalk
Great American girl
Stay in my world
Stay in my world

Chorus
Up in the morning
Drinking her coffee
Hears the noise outside
But she don’t have time
Cos she’s waitin for Romeo
With his Roses and crimes
Up in the morning
Struggling down sidewalks
Hears the sirens on time
But she don’t have time
Cos she’s waitin for Romeo
With his Roses and crimes
Great American girl
Stay in my world
Stay in my world

Great Italian girl
Attending catholic masses but she’s free from sin
Great Italian girl
Waiting for the start of her life to begin
Great American girl
Looking at the sky while the sunset remains
Great American girl saving up her dollars to get on that next plane
Great American girl
Stay in my world
Stay in my world

Chorus

Up in the morning
Walking past vineyards
Feels the wind in her hair
But she don’t have time
Cos she’s waitin for Romeo
With his Roses and crimes
Up in the morning
Drinking their coffee
Hear the noises outside
But they don’t have time
Cos they’re waitin for Romeo
With his roses and crimes
Great Italian/American girl x 8
Stay in my world
Stay in my world.
