  • Oh, oh I love you
    Oh, oh I do
    I got a sentimental illness for you
    Please don't go away, oh yeah

    I was a high school atom bomb
    Going off on the weekends
    Smoking dope and mowing lawns
    And I hated all the new trends

    Me and my friends sang
    Woh-uh-oh-oh-oh
    It's true, the middle of the road
    At least it's better than here

    Looking for a cause
    Well all I got was Santa Claus
    I'm hanging on a dream that's too dumb to die
    I feel like a cello
    Lost somewhere over the rainbow
    Way up high, too scared to dream
    But too dumb to die

    My daddy always was on strike
    Going off with the teamsters
    He said that everything will be alright
    Not every Sunday can be Easter

    The picket line screamed woh-uh-oh-oh-oh
    Don't cross, don't cross the line
    Because you'll be a scab, not a martyr

    Looking for a cause
    Well all I got was camouflage
    I'm hanging on a dream that's too dumb to die
    I feel like a cello
    Lost somewhere over the rainbow
    Way up high, too scared to dream
    But too dumb to

    Looking for a cause
    Well all I got was camouflage
    I'm hanging on a dream that's too dumb to die
    I feel like a cello
    Lost somewhere over the rainbow
    Way up high, too scared to dream
    But too dumb to die Writer/s: BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, FRANK EDWIN WRIGHT III, MIKE RYAN PRITCHARD
