American High Submit Correct Lyrics

Oh, my God
I fuckin' love it
Come on
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 fryin' on mescaline

Well, I was that kid drinkin' 40's on the bleachers
Getting drunk after school
And gettin' home too late, fallin' on my face
Way too drunk to skate, actin' a fool
[Incomprehensible] actin' a fool

I was that kid never doing good at
Nothing except for maybe at P.E.
And I was that kid getting bullied by the Filipinos
Rollin' with ABT

Me and 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 was my American high

Check it out
I was that kid that was tryin' to fuck your girlfriend
Couldn't get a goddamn date
And I was that kid that was getting hella busted
For pissin' on the subway

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 us to

Act a fool, don't need to be cool
Pissed off too and fucking the rules
Mama told me, stay in school
Don't rock 'n' roll but this was your American

Asteroids beat out homework
But [Incomprehensible] 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 getting by from my songs
I love it when you're 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 was my American

Act a fool, don't need to be cool
Break the rules 'cause this is your American high

Your American high
