Overall Meaning

The lyrics in the American Baby Intro by Dave Matthews Band are simple yet profound. The repeated line "She said a hundred times, she said a thousand times" could hold many different interpretations. One possible interpretation is that the singer is remembering a conversation he had with a loved one who made a statement repeatedly, perhaps emphasizing its importance or trying to convince him of something. The repetition of the line could also represent the persistence and resilience of memory, as if the singer couldn't forget what was said no matter how hard he tried.

Another possible interpretation is that the repetition of the line represents the cyclical nature of life, where events and conversations happen over and over again but in slightly different ways. The line could also represent the concept of time, where the past keeps repeating itself and we keep coming back to the same memories and experiences. Overall, the American Baby Intro lyrics are open to interpretation and might mean something different to each individual listener.

This is why I love DMB they do not play the same songs every night and you never know what will happen at a show and they sound amazing :)


Everyone talking about Boyd on here and Dave’s voice but carter was on fire during this set, the breakdown halfway with the syncopated bass/snare/hi-hat just pulls the whole band any point I can picture Carter smiling, staring at Boyd
