Do "most people" judge her age by:
her ancestry?
her looks?
her accomplishments?
her occupation / profession?
her current family?
her official documents?
what is related about her by friends or family? by media?

Is it relevant that she is a "she"?
Is she a child? a teenager?

if you 'think' she is from the US, that means you are not absolutely sure?
Although a real person, can there be more than one of 'her?'

Is the girl's name the title of the song? Or is the name at least mentioned in the song?
Could someone mistakenly think it's a romantic song? Would you call it a pop song? Rock? Country? More than twenty years old? Thirty?

I'm determined not to Google on this one. I can get it.

No idea - I always assumed she was a teenager or college student. Which I guess is the whole point of this puzzle. =)

You said already that she was younger than 10. Was she a baby? a toddler? a pre-school aged child? elementary school aged?
