Original Song Title:

"American Idiot"

Original Performer:

Green Day

Parody Song Title:

"American Citizen"

Parody Written by:

Cam Peckham

The Lyrics

Really, the original title says it all
Don't wanna be an American Citizen
Avoid the nation and all of it's denizens
And can you hear the sound of Hysteria?
Not unusual for one America

CHORUS
Welcome to a messed up environment
There's a reason their heads are out of alignment
Too bad stupidity's hereditary

Will they end up seeing tomorrow?
if all their heads remain so damn hollow
in one ear and out the other

So George Bush leaves many people distraught
'Cause what he says proves he has no forethought
The explanation just became clearer
Canadians are saving America

Welcome to a messed up environment
There's a reason their heads are out of alignment
Too bad stupidity's hereditary

Will they end up seeing tomorrow?
if all their heads remain so damn hollow
in one ear and out the other

Don't wanna be an American Citizen
Embarrassing over and over again
So tell me how they keep the status quo
But don't ask them they obviously wouldn't know

Welcome to a messed up environment
There's a reason their heads are out of alignment
Too bad stupidity's hereditary

Will they end up seeing tomorrow?
if all their heads remain so damn hollow
in one ear and out the other

'American Citizen', aka 'God, Not Another Green Day American Idiot Attack On George Bush Parody' or 'Green Day American Idiot Bush Attack Parody Number 475,786,543'. I'm getting a bit bored of reading them. This parody was quite good. 534
