The Only Girl in America (lyrics)

(Adam Lieb)
Adam Lieb/BMI < Click song title for lyrics >
Usually I sing this song in my "regular" voice, but on that day, in that studio,
for some reason I was possessed of another mind set- and one thing about recording studios, they remember what you do - exactly. So this is the recording we ended up with!
Maybe! Just Maybe!
Maybe I would want her
Maybe I would need her
Maybe I would tell her
How we’d be together
Maybe I would hold her
Maybe I would kiss her
Maybe I could love her too…

She could be my lover
Wouldn’t want no other
Find her undercover
Flowers for her mother
I would think she’s major
Wouldn’t try to cage her
I would fly to Asia too…

Maybe- Just Maybe
(if she was the) Only Girl in America
The Only Girl in America
The Only Girl in America

There are pretty girls in London
Pretty girls in Roma
Even Oklahoma has ‘em in the phonebook
Needn’t go to Rio
Singin’ with a trio
I think she’s a Leo too…

Maybe- Just Maybe
(if she was the) Only Girl in America
The Only Girl in America
The Only Girl in America
But she's not. The Only Girl in America for me.
