Americano

Album: Born This Way (2011)
  • I met a girl in east L.A.
    In floral shorts as sweet as May
    She sang in eights in two-barrio chords
    We fell in love, but not in court (La-la-la-la-la-la-la)

    I don't sp', I don't sp'
    Ah ah ah ah ah America Americano, ah ah ah ah ah America Americano

    Mis canciones son de la re-revolución
    Mi corazón me duele por mi generación
    If you love me we can marry on the west coast
    On a Wednesday en el verano en agosto

    I don't speak your, I don't speak your language, oh no (la-la-la-la-la-la-la))
    I don't speak your, I won't speak your, won't speak
    Your Jesús Cristo (la-la-la-la-la-la-la)

    Ah ah ah ah ah America Americano, ah ah ah ah ah America Americano

    I will fight for, I have fought for how I love you (la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    I have cried for, I will die for how I care (la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    In the mountains, las campanas están sonando (la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    Todos los chicos (chicas) y los chicos (chicas) están besando (La-la-la-la-la-la-la)

    I don't speak your, I don't speak your language, oh no (la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    I don't speak your, I won't speak your Jesús Cristo (la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    I don't speak your, I don't speak your Americano (la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
    I don't speak your, I won't speak your Jesús Cristo (la-la-la-la-la-la-la)

    Ah ah ah ah ah America Americano, ah ah ah ah ah America Americano
    Ah ah ah ah ah America Americano, ah ah ah ah ah America Americano

    Don't you try to catch me, don't you try to catch me
    No, no, no, no I'm living on the edge of
    Living on the edge of the law, law, law, law

    Don't you try to catch me, don't you try to catch me
    No, no, no, no don't you try to catch me
    Living on the edge of the law, law, law, law Writer/s: Stefani Germanotta, Fernando Garibay, Paul Edward Blair, Brian Dong Ho Lee
