The Grouch Lyrics

I was a young boy that had big plans
Now I'm just another shitty old man
I don't have fun and I hate everything
The world owes me, so fuck you

Glory days don't mean shit to me
I drank a six pack of apathy

    This song is about growing older and realizing that all the youthful optimism you had was total BS. You start out with unrealistically high expectations about what you are going to accomplish, who you are going to date or marry, how much money you are going to have, how much respect you are going to have, how much of a difference your going to make, etc. Then you just continue being mediocre and realize one day that life has passed you by and your still nothing special and now realize you never will be.

    This song is about what Billie Joe doesn't want to grow up and be like. It is also said that Billie wrote this song after he had a fight with Adrienne.
    AND/OR....
    The Grouch was generally about feeling older than you really are. After the Insomniac era, and Billie was tired as hell and just felt older then he really was.

    This song is about Billie Joe turning 25 and freaking out and becoming "another shitty old man" It is also rumored to have been written after he got into a fight with his wife Adrienne, but that hasnt been proven...hence the like "The wife's a nag and the kid's fucking up"
