Green Day - Walking Contradiction (Including Lyrics)





After the huge success of 'American Idiot' Green Day have come back with a storming new album '21st Century Breakdown'. This is the 'Walking Contradiction' video from their 1995 album 'Insomniac'. It's an oldie but goodie - check out how young they all look! I put this up in celebration of their ongoing tour, and as this is a comedy website, I picked what I think is the funniest of their videos. It kind of reminds me of the Blues Brothers, leaving chaos in their wake. I particularly like Billy Joe Armstrong's ill advised beard. For details of their tour and other Green Day related matters go to the band's website at Greenday.com

Sing along below!

Do as I say not as I do because
The shit so deep you can't run away
I beg to differ on the contrary
I agree with every word that you say
Talk is cheap and lies are expensive
My wallet's fat and so is my head
Hit and run and then I'll hit you again
I'm a smartass but I'm playing dumb

Standards set and broken all the time
Control the chaos behind a gun
Call it as I see it even if
I was born deaf, blind and dumb
Losers winning big on the lottery
Rehab rejects still sniffing glue
Constant refutation with myself
I'm victim of a catch 22

I have no belief
But I believe I'm a walking contradiction
And I ain't got no right

Do as I say not as I do because
The shit so deep you can't run away
I beg to differ on the contrary
I agree with every word that you say
Talk is cheap and lies are expensive
My wallet's fat and so is my head
Hit and run and then I'll hit you again
I'm a smartass but I'm playing dumb

I have no belief
But I believe I'm a walking contradiction
And I ain't got no right

I have no belief
But I believe I'm a walking contradiction
And I ain't got no right
