Green Day St. Jimmy Lyrics

Last updated: 06/11/2010 11:00:00 AM

St. Jimmy's comin' down across the alleyway
Upon the boulevard like a zip gun on parade
Light of a silhouette
He's insubordinate
Comin' at you on the count of

My name is Jimmy and you better not wear it out
Suicide commando that your momma talked about
King of the 40 thieves, I'm here to represent
The needle in the vein of the establishment

I'm the patron saint of the denial
With an angel face and a taste for suicidal

Cigarettes and ramen and a little bag of dope
I am a son of a bitch, and Edgar Allen Poe
Raised in the city in the halo of lights
Product of war and fear that we've been victimized

I'm the patron saint of the denial
With an angel face and a taste for suicidal

Are you talkin to me?!
I'll give you somethin to cry about!!
St. Jimmy!!

My name is St. Jimmy I'm a son of a gun
I'm the one that's from the way outside, now
A teenage assassin executing some fun
In the cult of the life of crime, now

I'd really hate to say it but I told you so
So shut your mouth before I shoot you down ol' boy
Welcome to the club and give me some blood
I'm the resident leader of the lost and found

It's comedy!
And tragedy!
It's St. Jimmy!
And that's my name...
And don't wear it out!!!

whoever writes these lyrics must be a hater. ive found so many Green Day lyrics that haven't been written right. "AND Edgar Allen Poe," + "... a teenage assassin." there is NO "ninja," OR "of Edgar Allen Poe."


My Jam | Reviewer: Jennifer | 11/22/08

I've been a Greenday fan since Dookie and I was ecstatic when they made their big "comeback" with American Idiot (not they didn't haven't some decent stuff in between but in my opinion none of the albums in between even comes close to American Idiot). Funny how it turned out to be a good thing that the stuff Greenday had orginally recorded for the next album got stolen- because it made them really stop and think about their music and how to make it better- and thus American Idiot was born. :) While I LOVE this whole CD (I know all the words- it's one of my most listened to CDs)- this song is my jam- I rock out to it whenever I hear it. So I agree with the other reviewers- go buy the CD and listen this song (and whole CD while your at it- some of the best songs on it aren't really played on the radio (including this one and Letterbomb, Jesus of Surburbia, Homecoming, etc. (track 12), and Whatshername)

The Lyrics brought back old memories, mooing about in a pasture in Ireland pissed as 3 farts So I spent tne night in mid oct in a pasture, I guess some bastard moved the road while I was sleeping. Finally made it to a road and needed a break 1 mi in 5 hours later, so there i was at 6:00 am perched on a rock and wouldn't you know the owner of of the B$B found me and got me and tok me home for a well deserved rest.

St.Jimmy rocks!!! | Reviewer: Eithan Murray worlds biggest Green Day fan!! | 3/6/06

St.Jimmy is one of the best songs Green Day have brought out and if you liked basketcase or time of your life then you will really like this and to all you non-green day fans out there:YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE MISSING!

Who The Heck is St. Jimmy?! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/18/06

I think St.Jimmy is a confused teenager who doesn't know what he really wants in life. He is suicidal,because he takes cocaine and other drugs.My gosh, don't get me wrong, this is a fabulous song!!!! My cousin said it has great energy and a good melody. If you hate punk rock, this song will change your mind. So go run to Tower Records,(They have Green Day albums)grab American Idiot off the shelves, pay for it, and then put it into your C.D. player. Go to track #6 and enjoy this great song. Ciao!!!!
