American Kids - Kenny Chesney



The Experience: Growing up is all about trying new things, messing up, learning, and hopefully having some fun along the way as you build your future.


Music video: In the teaser video Kenny Chesney and some friends are painting and packing their bus for what looks like a long road trip, but we will have to wait a little longer to see what they have in store for us here.


The Meaning of American Kids: As we grow up we need to try new things, succeed, fail, make mistakes, and have fun. However, Kenny Chesney makes mistakes like... Makin' out on living room couches... Makin' it to second base... sound like a normal part of life without any lasting consequences.


Ask yourself: Do I have the courage to take the chances that growing up implies? Do I know how to say "no" when the situation calls for it?

LYRICS:

Doublewide Quick Stop midnight T-top
Jack in her Cherry Coke town
Momma and daddy put their roots right here
'Cause this is where the car broke down
Yellow dog school bus kickin' up red dust
Pickin' us up by a barbed wire fence
MTV on the RCA, no A/C in the vents

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA
We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
Baby, come give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone
Uptown down home American kids
Growin' up in little pink houses
Makin' out on living room couches
Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night
A little messed up, but we're all alright

Baptist church parkin' lot, tryin' not to get caught
Take her home and give her your jacket
Makin' it to second base, but sayin' you went all the way
Monday afternoon at practice
Sister's got a boyfriend daddy doesn't like
Now he's sittin' out back, 3030 in his lap
In the blue bug zapper light

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA
We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
Baby, come give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone
Uptown down home American kids
Growin' up in little pink houses
Makin' out on living room couches
Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night
A little messed up, but we're all alright
