From the recording A Girl Down In Mexico


I’ve been all around the world, kissed all kinds of girls
Loved them all, still I’ve gotta say
Of all the lips I’ve kissed, the only lips I’ve missed
Are back in the USA

Every kiss is quite unique; some are short and sweet
Some are passionate and lingering, some are red hot
But wherever these roads may wind, have I been trying to find
Something I’ve already got?

And now I know there’s just one kind of kissing for me

What I’ve been missing is American kissing
And, of course, there’s nothing French about that
French kissing is just fine, but when your lips touch mine
I purr like a Siamese cat

Sometimes when you leave home, destinations unknown
Thinking something more is out there to find
Expectations not coming true, I just kept thinking of you
And the American kissing I left behind

Repeat First CHORUS/Second CHORUS
There’s at least a touch of bliss in every kind of kiss
But for me not just any kiss will do
Like a moth to a flame, there’s a fire I just can’t tame
When I’m American kissing, oooh, with you

Just you and me, girl, American kissing
