  • Lacey from Chicago, Ilgreat song, i love the old green day..and the new one as well..and it seems like they lost quite a few fans since american idiot. not true fans!
  • Eva from Stockholm, Swedenpretty cute song. but green day are weird.
  • Walker from Waukee, IaIs there a mistake towards the end of the song? I'm talking about a point where the instruments all seem to off-time and clashing, or was that intentional?
  • Tom from Mead County, KyThis song is about billie joe and his wife tryiing to work out the problems they had, by going to church
  • Tiffany from Oakland, Cawoah, i like this song, but i didn't know that, oh well now i do!
  • Katie from Berkly, CaThis song is about the tough times at the beginning of Adie and Billie's marriage and how Billie would change anything about himself so Adie would stay with him.
  • Joe from Chicago, Aryes this is on warning i have every green day cd except for "shenanigans" and i want that one alot
  • Tanya from London, United StatesLook up Hannah its says under the song title. Its on Warning, track 3 if I remember correctly
  • Hannah from Melbourne, Australiais this on one of greendays cds? which one?
  • Jess from Gladstone, AustraliaThis is my fave greenday song. I really love it. I am a huge fan of their older stuff like "poprocks and coke". This song is 'apparently' when Billie Joe was on drugs and his wife was telling him that if he dosen't clean up and become a better person she was leaving him. This was his plea for her to stay and that he would get clean!
  • Erik from Willow Hill, Pathat song means so much more to me now. i just thought it was a catchy little tune about a date.
  • Smope from None Ya, MdWow, I didnt know that about this song.
