Nicole Scherzinger – American Girl

Nicole Scherzinger – American Girl

[Verse 1]
Uuh uuuh uh
I was born upon the island
A Puakenikeni [?]
My mother was eighteen years old
When she had me on her own
I didn’t know who my father was
The young lovers fell apart
That’s why my mama taught me
Never let nobody break your heart
We never had much at all
But one thing I do recall
Everywhere there was music
There was music
There was music in my ears
Never felt that I belonged
But I found that every song
Could teach me, could reach me
See, I always sang from the start

[Chorus]
Always sang from my heart
Just an American Girl
Tryna sing something new
Tryna be something, too
But singing something true

[Verse 2]
And one day my mom found a new love
He raised me since I was young
A gentleman from Kentucky
So Louisville became my home
And I was a brown-eyed girl
Livin’ in the Southern town
But my momma told me
To never let nobody put my down
Soul music in my veins
Country music in my brain
I could feel it
I could taste it
I could hold it in my hand
Made friends, and showed the way
Nor in here, the lady day
And they taught me I can me, free
I always sang from the start

[Chorus]
Always sang from my heart
Just an American Girl
Tryna sing something new
Tryna be something, too
But singing something true

[Extended Bridge]
Singing something true
Singing something true
Singing something true
I’m tryina sing something new
Singing something true
Singing something true
Singing something true
I’m tryina be something, too
Singing something true
Singing something true
Singing something true
I’m tryina sing something new
Singing something true
Singing something true
Singing something true
I’m tryina be something

[Chorus]
I always sang from the start
Always sang from my heart
Just an American Girl
Tryna sing something new
Tryna be something, too
By singing something true

[Outro]
Tryna sing something
Tryna sing something
