Stupid American

from Looking Out the Fishbowl

You've got exactly 60 seconds
to tell me what you meant by that
One short minute to apologize
You've got exactly 60 seconds
to tell me what you meant by that
I hear the murder rate is on the rise
I'm in love, and I do not speak the language
I'm in love, but I don't understand
I'm in love, and I do not speak the language
But I try to speak the language of this foreign land

Here I am, Stupid American
Here I am
Here I am, Stupid American
Here I am

You've got exactly 60 seconds
to think about that stupid question
A baguette doesn't come with a bag
You've got exactly 60 seconds
to take back that stupid question
It's called a baguette, don't you get it- get it
I'm in love, but I do not speak the language
I'm in love, but I don't understand
I'm in love, and I do not speak the language
When I try to speak the language,
it comes out sounding like…

Chorus

His heart is Italy…His kiss is Paris…
His body is Brazilian
My heart is…my heart is… Oklahoma

You've got exactly 60 seconds
to kiss me like a European
One short minute to show me how
You've got exactly 60 seconds to love me like a spy
I've seen those foreign films-do it-do it now
I'm in love, with a man who says "te amo"
I'm in love, he calls me "ma petite chou-chou"
I'm in love, and I try to speak the language
But I can't understand a single word he's saying…

Chorus
