When they talk of foreign beauty that's on the other side,
We have no fear for our girls here, all fill our hearts with pride.
There's no long title to their name, as you can plainly see,
But the American girl, with a twist and twirl, is good enough for me.
Just a plain American girl is good enough for me:
I don't like the foreign styles they have across the sea;
I want no English title, so contented I will he,
For just a plain American girl is good enough for me.
Now just watch them when out strolling, they're stately and so grand;
There is a style about them all that makes you understand.
If they're sincere, they're all that's dear-they're happy, gay and free,
So the American girl, with a twist And twirl, is good enough for me.- Cho.
