Lyrics:

He hit the ground running
At the speed of light			(Verse 1)
The star was brightly shining
Like a neon light

It's your favorite son			(Chorus)
It's your favorite son

A fixture on the talkshows
To the silver screen			(Verse 2)
From here to Colorado
He's a sex machine

(Chorus)

But isn't it a drag?
Isn't it a drag?			(Bridge)
Isn't it a drag?
It's pretty bloody sad
But isn't it a drag?

A clean-cut all-American
Really ain't so clean			(Verse 3)
His royal auditorium
Is a murder scene

(Chorus)
(Bridge)

Well, no one says it's fair		
Turn a teenage lush			(Interlude)
To a millionaire

Now where's your fuckin' champion?
On a bed you laid			(Verse 4)
He's not the all-American
That you thought you paid

It's your favorite son
It's your favorite son
But isn't it a drag?

About the artist behind Favorite Son:

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".
