American In Paris
Unreleased track recorded late 1989. Written by Prince.

 
Yeah

She said she's from New York by way of L.A.
She brought with her a smile and some good weather
She didn't speak the language but she understood the rest
How did I know that we'd end up 2gether?

American n Paris (Oh)
An American n Paris (Oh)
She didn't speak the language but she understood the rest (Ooh)
An American n Paris (Oh)

She said she wanted 2 dance with me so I did oblige
We did it till we were both good and sweaty
Then we went outside and put the top down on my ride
We turned the radio up, we groovin' steady

An American n Paris (Oh)
American n Paris (Oh)
She didn't speak the language but she understood the rest (Ooh)
An American n Paris (Oh)

I know U'll soon go home 2 ur other life
I know deep n inside U don't think it's right
But 4 now, my love, let's just pretend it's alright
Oh
American n Paris

Took 2 days of fallin', now she wants 2 marry me
She says I'm like no 1 she's ever known
But U belong 2 another and 3's not company
So I can't have U 4 my own

American n Paris (Oh)
Well (Oh)
Doopy doopy doopy
Oh

So I took her 2 the Eiffel Tower and tell her 2 close her eyes
Much 2 her surprise I am all the way gone (Gone)
Regrets come with the dawn but the queen has took the pawn
Besides I always love when we have good weather (Whoo)

American n Paris (Oh)
American n Paris (Oh)
She didn't speak the language but she understood the rest (Ooh)
Hmm? American n Paris (Oh...)
American n Paris (Oh)
She didn't speak the language but she understood the rest
American n Paris (Oh) {repeat}
Smile

American n Paris (Oh) {repeat}
Oh {repeat}
