Lyrics: (Not entirely correct)

Say! Hey!

Hear the sound of the falling rain
Coming down like an Armageddon plague (Hey!)		(Verse 1)
The shame, the ones who die without a name

There's a song sounding out of key
To a hymn called faith and misery (Hey!)		(Verse 2)
A plead, the company lost the war today

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives		(Chorus)
On holiday

There's a drum pounding out of time
Another protestor has crossed the line (Hey!)		(Verse 3)
The line, the money's on the homicide

Can I get another Amen?  (Amen!)
There's a rag wrapped around the score of men (Hey!)	(Verse 4)
A gag, A plastic bag on a monument

(Chorus)
(Bridge)

The representative from California has the floor:
Speak out to the president gasbag
"Bombs away!" is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel Towers
You got a choice so don't repent			(Interlude)
"Bang Bang!" goes the broken glass man 
Kill all the fags that don't agree
Trial by fires, sinners, buyers
I found a way that's meant for me 
Check out... check out our lives on holiday

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives		
I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
This is our lives on holiday

About the artist behind Holiday Tab:

Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7]

The band has sold over 65 million records worldwide,[8] including 22 million in the United States alone.[9] They also have three Grammy Awards, Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
