Get Rid Of The Advertisements

All American
 
I am an all-American girl
I give it my all, I do my best
Smile even though my heart is breaking
I always remember to buckle my seatbelt

And I always wear clean underwear
I am just the nice girl from next door
I cross my heart and hope to die
I'm American as the 4th of July

Apple pie, red, white, and blue
Scout's honor, cross my heart and hope to die
On Sundays. Just good fun is what I want to have
Booster Club Member, and even attend church

I may have blue eyes and white teeth
And most of the time I have hybred vigor
You won't catch me marrying my cousin
I am so All-American, it makes me sick

Even on a daily basis I always
Look my best, give it 100 per cent
And maybe get six hours of sleep
Honesty is always the best policy

Might never makes it truly right
But, it's the all American way
Sink or swim, count my blessings
Yes Sir, I'm so glad I am an American

I wrote this poem back in 1962 my senior year of high school.
