"Kathleen" is the 7th song on American Music Club's fourth album, 1989’s United Kingdom. A studio version of the song has yet to be released.

In 1994 Eitzel told Melody Maker, "Kathleen was pretty pissed off about 'Kathleen' but Jenny loved 'Jenny'. But, after 'Kathleen', I learnt not to make it so obvious, like, uh, not naming the song after them or anything. That was a bit of a pointer."[1]

Lyrics

When no one cares for you
You're made of straw
No appointments to keep
No human law

When no one cares for you
You're made of straw
You're living on borrowed time
You can't do nothing right
You can't commit a crime

When no one cares for you
Well honey you're made of straw

Your love Kathleen is for someone
That I swear I could have been

When no one cares for you
You're made of straw
You can't do nothing right
You can't uphold a law

When no one cares for you
