Elle King - America's Sweetheart Lyrics




No, there ain't nothing that I gotta prove
You think your words will make me black and blue, but I
I think I'm pretty with these old boots on
I think it's funny when I drink too much, hey
You tryna change me, you can go to hell
Cause I don't wanna be nobody else
I like the chip I got in my front teeth
And I got bad tattoos you won't believe

So kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me
I'm not America's sweetheart
So beat the drum with me
I'm not America's sweetheart
Well, they say I'm too loud
For this town
So I lit a match
And burned it down
What do you want from me
I'm not America's sweetheart
But you love me anyway

My hands are dirty and my heart is cold
Them boys I've been with say I got no soul, when I
I need another honey at the bar
I'll think it's funny when I break his heart
My kind of medicine is whiskey straight
I got a mouth to put you in your place, and they
They said I'll never be the poster type
But they don't make posters of my kind of life

So kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me
I'm not America's sweetheart
So beat the drum with me
I'm not America's sweetheart
Well, they say I'm too loud
For this town
So I lit a match
And burned it down
What do you want from me
I'm not America's sweetheart
But you love me anyway

You love me anyway
You love me anyway

Kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Holler if you ready, gonna lose control
Kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me
I'm not America's sweetheart
So beat the drum with me
I'm not America's sweetheart
Well, they say I'm too loud
For this town
So I lit a match
And burned it down
What do you want from me
I'm not America's sweetheart
But you love me anyway

You love me anyway
You love me anyway

I'm not America's sweetheart

    Cherie Casey

    I think I'm obsessed with all of her music she is awesome there is no one else like her for sure

  46. Note Bender

    This is supposed to be music? Man the industry needs help. Look for underground talent and don't let the industry dumb you down. She isn't wrong in what she's singing though.

  68. mrsbairx

    just watched her on catfish and she was so nice to the girl and i didnt really know who she was but that made me like her as a person so i had to look her up and saw that she sang that ex and ohs song and i mean its not a horrible song but it was so over played (mostly at my old job lol) that i'm tired of it and dont like it so i decided to listen to other songs and this one isnt bad.
    so long story short... the way she was on catfish made me like her as a person and made me look her music up... i know no one cares but still wanted to share. lol

    Harlie Eva Phillips456

    He dad is also Rob Schneider. I think she looks like him just a little

    mrsbairx

    @Harlie Eva Phillips456 I didnt know that. I don't really see it lol sorry

  69. k0chana

    Does anyone else hear "They say I'm too loud, FUCK this town, so I lit a match and burned it down"..? I know it's wrong, but I don't know why, I still like to sing it like that..

  70. Kathryn Cortese

    my friend use to love this song in till someone ruined it

  71. GloriaFan

    Just saw her live for the first time last night. So sad she didn't sing this song because it's my favorite.

  72. Junie B. Jones

    *I’m pretty sure I heard this song at Walmart or Target*

  73. Mon S

    💓 I don't wanna be nobody else!!

  74. Heart Attack

    Wow, an actual talented musician, talking about REAL problems and REAL feelings? No wonder she's underrated. 😒

  75. Enda McDonagh

    Some tune

  76. Manuel Andrés Espitia Ibañez

    She May not be American sweetheart but she is Americans best voice, that’s for sure

  77. sacredlie123

  85. Andrea Patricia Crowley

    I guess Diana Cardenas The Bitch is your new sweetheart guys

  86. Lucy Cake09

    Oh look it’s markiplier’s moustache 0:12

  87. Jule T

    Seriously...Amazing fun song!

  88. Dana Wyant

    Amazing

  89. Peter Joseph O'Brien

    Muah lady.

  90. Dave Kopp

    She is severely underrated!

  91. Karinna Fairbanks

    I heard this song and thought it was by Grace Vanderwaal

  92. Sorrows City

    Yet they focus mainly on the roller skating models, so sad she should have just owned it....Great song keep up the great work...

  93. zerosashes

    Why is every single shot of only her face? She is a big girl, she is beautiful, celebrate it, don't hide it. I love this song, her message, and her no matter the weight!

    Patrick Prafke

    Probably because they aren't making it an issue when it dont need to be one. Sell music please. Not an agenda.

    zerosashes

    @Patrick Prafke Awkwardly filming this so they don't show a single shot of her full body is not "making it an issue"? It's obviously an issue for someone lol Having a shot of a heavy singer, I don't know, singing, is an agenda? Yeah, ok.

    Patrick Prafke

    Probably because most people dont celebrate being overweight. This whole garbage of making everything negative in life and making it the norm is the agenda.

    P.s.

    Most people just want to watch a good video to a good song and not have an obvious agenda pushed at them with everywhere you look. Can't ya just watch a video and listen to a song without all this "celebrate this". Seriously. It's a good song. Cant we just enjoy it for what it is? Answer. Nope.

  94. Shawna Grewe

    This video, I think this is definitely her singing. She has that country in her so much that I think she should just do country-pop.

  95. Sheldon Hatch
