She's a rebel
She's a saint
She's the salt to the earth
and she's dangerous

She's a rebel
vigilante
Missing link on the brink
of destruction

From Chicago to Toronto
She's the one that they
call ol' what'sername

She's a symbol
of resistance
And she's holding on my
heart like a hand grenade

Is she dreaming
what I'm thinking
Is she the mother of all bombs
gonna detonate

Is she trouble?
Like I'm trouble
Make it a double
Twist of fate
or a melody that

She sings the revolution
the dawning of our lives
She brings this liberation
that I just can't define
when nothing comes to mind
hey!

She sings the revolution
the dawning of our lives
She brings this liberation
that I just can't define
when nothing comes to mind

She's a rebel
She's a saint
She's the salt to the earth
and she's dangerous

She's a rebel
vigilante
Missing link on the brink
of destruction

She's a rebel
She's a saint
She's the salt to the earth
and she's dangerous

She's a rebel
vigilante
Missing link on the brink
of destruction

She's a rebel, she's a rebel, she's a rebel, and she's dangerous
She's a rebel, she's a rebel, she's a rebel, and she's dangerous

    Ok, as HazelDountLovesBullet, I didn't post meanings for this song for some reason... I'm explaining the American Idiot Musical song by song, though, and the meaning is pretty much the same.
    In the musical, She's a A Rebel is combined with Last of the American Girls, right after Give Me Novacaine. This is my personal favorite on the soundtrack because it is sung by both Johnny and Jimmy - which is odd because its like listening to him argue with himself, because Jimmy is a really just a part of Johnny.
    Johnny is in love with Whatsername and sings Last of the American Girls as praise, but Jimmy cuts in with She's a Rebel, giving the song a negative connotation as he constantly repeats "She's a rebel and she's dangerous!". Whatsername is everything Johnny ever wanted, but Jimmy for whatever reason, doesn't seem to want them together.
    The next song is Last Night On Earth.

    he's talking about some chick that's different than other girls, and she's obviously a rebel. it sounds like this might be one of the main songs for American Idiot because of the verse. "and she's holding onto my heart like a hand grenade" which is the picture on the front of american idiot
