Green Day – The Grouch lyrics
I was a young boy that had big plans
Now I'm just another shitty old man
I don't have fun and I hate everything
The world owes me, so fuck you.

Glory days don't mean shit to me
I drank a six pack of apathy
Life's a bitch and so am I
The world owes me, so fuck you.

Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals
I had a young and optimisitic point of view.
Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals
I had a young and optimisitic point of view.

I've decomposed, yet my gut's getting fat
Oh my god I'm turning out like my dad
I'm always rude I've got a bad attitude
The world owes me, so fuck you.

The wife's a nag and the kid's fucking up
I don't have s** cause I can't get it up
I'm just a grouch sitting on the couch
The world owes me, so fuck you.

Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals
I had a young and optimisitic point of view.
Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals
I had a young and optimisitic point of view.

I was a young boy that had big plans
Now I'm just another shitty old man
I don't have fun and I hate everything
The world owes me, so fuck you.

Glory days don't mean shit to me
I drank a six pack of apathy
Life's a bitch and so am I
The world owes me, so fuck you
The world owes me, so fuck you
The world owes me, so fuck you.

    This song seems to about and old man who hasn't gotten anything he wanted in his life, so he just drinks and is a dick to everyone. He thinks back to when he was young and had dreams that would get him somewhere in life. They didn't work out. To sum it up, this man is old and is unhappy with everyone and about everything.
