Parody Written by:
Ode to Billie Joe (Armstrong)
It was the second of September, just another California day
We were hanging at the studio, just practicing with Mike and Tre,
And then at dinner time we packed up our guitars without a single word
There with the two guys from the band, but still we couldn't seem to find the third
And then Mike told us as he went to get a Coca-Cola from the fridge
"Well, Billie Joe wrote all the lyrics, but he's still in working on the bridge."
And then Tre told us as he started on a double cheeseburger and fries,
"Well, if the album isn't out till May, it shouldn't be a big surprise
I guess I may as well relax because I think it's gonna be a while"
So he kicked back and put his feet up and turned on the TV with a smile
But I was sure that somewhere Billie Joe's forehead was clenched into a ridge
And he was working through the night to figure out something for the bridge.
And then my buddy shrugged his shoulders and he headed off towards the door
He said "I guess that they can call me if they need me here any more
So can I pick you guys up anything, some ice cream or an apple pie?"
But Mike and Tre both shook their heads and said "No thanks, we'll see you and goodbye"
So I suppose that they already had all that they needed in the fridge
So they could sit and wait while Billie Joe was still working on the bridge.
But I just hung out and recalled the night the phone rang and a guy named Vig,
He said "We need some session talent and we think you're perfect for the gig"
And now the sweetest job I ever had was looking like it's gone all wrong
Because they don't need no guitarists if they never even have a song
I guess it isn't quite as tragic as that couple up on Choctaw Ridge,
But I can't wait to hear that Billie Joe is finally finished with the bridge.
It was a couple months ago so I'm no longer waiting by the phone
My buddy's working waiting tables so for now I practice all alone
And Mike and Tre went on vacation somewhere in the Caribbean Sea,
So now it seems like no one's visiting the studio except for me
I just stop by to bring him flowers and make sure there's something in the fridge,
'Cause Billie Joe has found the chorus, but he just can't seem to find the bridge.
