Green Day – Favorite Son lyrics

He hit the ground running,
At the speed of light.
The star was brightly shining,
Like a neon light.
It's your favorite son.
It's your favorite son.
A fixture on the talkshows,
To the silver screen.
From here to Colorado,
He's a sex machine.
It's your favorite son.
It's your favorite son.
But isn't it a drag?
Isn't it a drag?
Isn't it a drag?
its pretty bloody sad,
but isn't it a drag?
A clean-cut All-American,
Really ain't so clean.
His royal auditorium,
Is a murder scene.
It's your favorite son.
It's your favorite son.
Oh, isn't it a drag?
Isn't it a drag?
Isn't it a drag?
It's pretty but it's sad,
but isn't it a drag?
[Bridge]
Well no one says it's fair.
Turn a teenage lush,
To a millionaire.
Now where's your ####### champion?
On a panty raid
He's not the All-American,
That you thought you paid.
It's your favorite son.
It's your favorite son.
But isn't it a drag?
The first artificial earth satelite, in the world, has now been created.

    This is Hazeldountlovesbullet under my new name, explaining the American Idiot Musical to anyone following me. The last song was Boulevard of Broken Dreams. This song is actually sung by Johnny's friend Tunny. He can't adjust to life in the city, and begins to resent American 'values'. 'Favorite son' refers mostly to the generic all-American, and how corrupt he believes that person to be. Out of his frustration, Tunny enlists in the military.
