American Boy
Afro Blue Lyrics


Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA
I really want to come kick it with you
You'll be my American boy

Can we get away this weekend
Take me to Broadway
Let's go shopping, maybe then we'll go to a cafe
Let's go on the subway
Take me to your hood
I've never been to Brooklyn and I'd like to see what's good
Dressed in all your fancy clothes
Sneakers looking fresh to death
I'm lovin' those shell toes
Walkin' that walk
Talkin' that slick talk
You'll be my American boy, boy, boy
American boy

Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day (What's your persona, about that Americana Rama)
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA (Am I shallow cause all my clothes designer)
I really want to come kick it with you
You'll be my American boy, American boy

It's in my top 2. It was spectacular then and it's spectacular now. I have to revisit it every now and then.

@Katie Wiseman I say it'll a bit more guaranteed season 1, but 2 and 4 I don't know. 2 would be a bit closer than 4 imo

The arrangement was out of this world! I hate that they didn’t get any sort of deal out of the show :,( this is legendary.

clarradactyl

after all these years, i still think about this group and their performance of this song! they were amazing.

EL Rod

that was the greatest performance in all 4 seasons of this show!!!!! world class!!!!!

Denis Johnson

Certainly an EPIC one!

I believe I still give the edge to Committed’s 1st performance of “This Love”. This was an exceptionally-close 2nd & then Street Corner Symphony & Backbeats May be battling for the 3rd spot.

Amazing either way!
