American High (Album Version) Lyrics - Machine Head

Review The Song (0)



Oh my God!
Yeah! Whoo, Whoo!
Check it out!

I was that kid sittin' over in the corner
Smiling with a shit eating grin
And I was that kid smilin' in the back of class
'Cause I'm flyin' on mescaline
I was that kid drinkin' 40's on the bleachers
Gettin' drunk after school
Gettin' home too late, fallin' on my face
Way too drunk to skate & actin' a fool
To I've been actin' a fool!

I was that kid never doing good at nothing
Except for maybe at P.E.
And I was that kid gettin' bullied by the Filipinos
Rollin' with ABT
sponsored links
Me & my friends reading The Satanic Bible
Thinking we should start a band
Cutting class to jam, cutting class to jam
In my dad's garage we learned to

Act a fool!
Don't need to be cool.
Pissed off too!
And breaking the rules.
Mama told me stay in school.
Don't rock 'n' roll.
But this is my American High.

Check it out!

I was that kid that was prank callin' your girlfriend
Couldn't get a goddamn date
And I was that kid that was gettin' hella busted
For pissin' on the bart train!

I fuckin' hated school except for hanging out with my friends
The outcast that was startin' up a band
Fremont was the town, California bound
Bay area sound, taught me to

Act a fool!
Don't need to be cool.
Pissed off too!
And breaking the rules.
Mama told me stay in school.
Don't rock 'n' roll.
But this is my American High.

I'm that kid you tried to punk in English class
Now I'm in a band & your kissin' my...

Asteroids beat out homework
Slayer beat out Zeppelin
Not the sharpest Noggin
That's why I'm in this band!

And what you got against me?
I don't need a new job!
What you got against me?
I'll get by on my own!
Tellin' me I'm never gettin' by from my songs!
I love it when your proven wrong!

Act a fool!
Don't need to be cool.
Pissed off too!
And breaking the rules.
Mama told me stay in school.
Don't rock 'n' roll.
But this is my American...

Act a fool!
Don't need to be cool.
Break the rules!
'Cause this is the American High!
The American High!
