Dillinger Four Lyrics

Sometimes it's simple things that make it hard
Spoiled baby tee's with credit cards
Overtime always on my mind
Could-have-beens eat away inside now

Praise God and pass the bottle of Beam, 'cause tonight I can't seem to say what I mean
Don't know if I would even if I could, amen
Somehow this seems like borrowed time, pay no mind, everything is fine
But sometimes I'd rather hear laughter while this whole place died

A Johnny Jump-Up is a lovely thing
A pint of cider and some whiskey
I had four dead inside of me
Just to hear this jackass sing

His line about how he used to hang out
Somewhere back in the day
Knowing terms only an asshole would say
So I sat there drinking more, thinking about drinking more

Nelson Algren came to me
He said "Celebrate the ugly things"
The beat-up side of what they call pride
Could be the measure of these days

God save Otis Redding 'cause I know he's never gone
As the cig falls from this mouth, hear me sing it wrong
Is it "Cigarettes and Coffee" now or dreams to be remembered?
I'll leave regrets for dead and sing along

Now I'm reaching for the phone, I don't want to be alone
I've got some friends here tonight
I got a basement full of booze and some blues to lose
I'll ignore the whole world tonight, it'll be alright

It's no secret that Green Day are huge Dillinger Four fans. I saw Green Day in 2001, and in between sets, "This Shit is Genius" is what was playing, it it was no accident

Jamie Reed

Wow that's amazing dude


This song is genius.

People dont realize that green day also released a song called Haushinka,which is on Nimrod. In the song,it has this same riff.Haushinka,by the way, was 1997.

A Johnny jump up really is a lovely thing. Try some Fireball in a hard cider.


Actually, in 1995 Green Day released a song called "Walking Contradiction" that has the exact same chord progression as this song. So Green Day blatantly copied a song that blatantly copied themselves.

At Least it made Green Day's future....They copied it blatantly.

Of What year is this?

I wonder when people will understand.Just because a song has the same chords doesnt mean the songs are the same
