    "American Eyes" Lyrics

    Here is a story of three young people
    A girl and two boys
    She's got American eyes
    American eyes

    They left school for fame and fortune
    But she was the one
    The girl with the stars in her eyes
    Stars and stripes in her eyes

    I was one of the boys
    Oh how I loved her
    But she wouldn't see me
    She shut her apple pie eyes
    As blue as Jamaica skies

    And oh unrequited love quite often grows
    And never quite goes

    He was one of the boys
    He joined the army
    He sailed from American shores
    To fight the foreigners' wars

    Baby shut your eyes up tight
    I swear the world won't end tonight
    And when we die our spirits fly
    Into the light above the sky
