American Man

Joy Hermalyn, Helen Sjöholm, Jessica Vosk, Louise Pitre, Walter Charles

Kristina, Ulrika, Elin & Fina-Kajsa
Who’d have thought such men existed?
Does the housework unassisted
Sweeps the floor and does the dishes
And his coffee is delicious
How he’s worked, how he’s persisted
Who’d have thought such men existed?
In this vast amazing land
(To Jackson)
You give hope and comfort and shelter
You give all you can
American man

Jackson
There was never a woman who gave me a glance

Kristina, Ulrika, Elin & Fina-Kajsa
(not understanding a word he’s saying)
He has clean sheets, y’know, on his bed

Jackson
No, I never dreamed of getting this attention

Kristina, Ulrika, Elin & Fina-Kajsa
Bet you he bakes his bread

Jackson
Unbelievable! I think they’re flirting with me

Kristina, Ulrika, Elin & Fina-Kajsa
Does he iron his shirts, can it be?

Jackson
I don’t have a clue
So should I just pretend that I don’t see it?
I don’t know what to do

Please, tell me that I’m not mistaken
Have to say I’m shaken!
( Looking at Ulrika )
She’s so attractive
Oh, I hardly dare to look

Kristina, Ulrika, Elin & Fina-Kajsa
He can certainly cook!

Jackson
To be wanting a wife

Ulrika
Lives alone here, I’d say

Jackson
To be sharing your life

Ulrika
Guess he likes it that way

Kristina, Ulrika, Elin & Fina-Kajsa
Who’d have thought such men existed?
Such a man can’t be resisted
Not a moment does he squander
Was there ever such a wonder
Makes my eyes come up all misted
Who’d have thought such men existed?
In this vast amazing land
( To Jackson )
You give hope and comfort and shelter
You give all you can
American man

Jackson
To be wanting a wife

Ulrika
Not a sign of a spouse

Jackson
To be sharing your life

Ulrika
It’s a bachelor’s house

Kristina, Ulrika, Elin & Fina-Kajsa
Who’d have thought such men existed?
Does the housework unassisted
Sweeps the floor and does the dishes
And his coffee is delicious
How he’s worked, how he’s persisted
Who’d have thought such men existed?
Doesn’t fret or make a fuss
He’s one of us
For men and women here now
So it would appear now
They are equals in this land
You give hope and comfort and shelter
You give all you can
American man!

Jackson
Thank you God!
