Laura Nyro American Dreamer Lyrics
Last updated: 09/04/2008 12:00:00 PM
Autumn's child is catchin' hell , for having been to naive to tell ,
property rights from chapel bells
"there's nothing we can do , we could not get there in time
it's too late - she signed on the dotted line"
oh shoot em' up cops and robbers - oh America
The manager smiled , he said -"we're gonna straighten this mess"
he had a picture of Spot and Jane on his desk
so I signed his strange contract with the transparent lines...
"there's nothing we can do , we couldn't get there in time
it's too late , she signed on the dotted line"
oh shoot em' up cops and robbers - oh America America
The lawyers cried thru the telephone rings , the doctors sighed-
"she's imagining things"
when he came thru the window with those crazy eyes -
Dick Tracy in disguise, he said " You need a guiding hand
you're soft and you're fine - sign here on the dotted line"
oh big deals cops and robbers , oh America
I am your rose , American dreamer , flyin' high down thru America
Didn't you know , American dreamer , flyin high down thru America
