All American Girl

Album: Carnival Ride (2007)
Charted: 27
  • Since the day they got married
    He'd been praying for a little baby boy
    Someone he could take fishing
    Throw the football and be his pride and joy
    He could already see him holding that trophy
    Taking his team to state
    But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket
    All those big dreams changed

    And now, he's wrapped around her finger
    She's the center of his whole world
    And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
    All American girl

    Sixteen short years later
    She was falling for the senior football star
    Before you knew it he was dropping passes
    Skipping practice just to spend more time with her
    The coach said, hey son what's your problem
    Tell me have you lost your mind
    Daddy said you'll lose your free ride to college
    Boy, you better tell her goodbye

    But now, he's wrapped around her finger
    She's the center of his whole world
    And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
    All American

    And when they got married and decided to have one of their own
    She said, be honest, tell me what you want
    And he said, honey you outta know

    A sweet, little, beautiful one just like you
    I want a beautiful, wonderful, perfect All American

    Now, he's wrapped around her finger
    She's the center of his whole world
    And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
    All American girl

  • John from Newton Aycliffe, United Kingdomcould this song not be the story of Carrie's live of when she was young and maybe it was told to her by her dad.
  • Amanda from Fort Wayne, Inhi
  • Sadie from Orange County, CaThis song is about a young married couple. The father really wants a guy, but "the nurse came in with a little pink blanket" and he ended up being wrapped around her finger, and she was his "All American Girl."
