Green Day - Homecoming Lyrics

[Part 1: The Death Of St. Jimmy]

My heart is beating from me
I am standing all alone
Please call me only if you are coming home
Waste another year flies by
Waste a night or two
You taught me how to live

In the streets of shame
Where you've lost your dreams in the rain
There's no signs of hope
The stems and seeds of the last of the dope

There's a glow of light
The St. Jimmy is the spark in the night
Bearing gifts and trust
The fixture in the city of lust

What the hell's your name?
What's your pleasure and what is your pain?
Do you dream too much?
Do you think what you need is a crutch?

In the crowd of pain
St. Jimmy comes without any shame
He says, "We're fucked up," but we're not the same
And mom and dad are the ones you can blame

Jimmy died today
He blew his brains out into the bay
In the state of mind
It's my own private suicide

[Part 2: East 12th St.]

Well, nobody cares
Well, nobody cares
Does anyone care if nobody cares?

Jesus filling out paperwork now
At the facility on East 12th St
He's not listening to a word now
He's in his own world and he's daydreaming

He'd rather be doing something else now
Like cigarettes and coffee with the underbelly
His life's on the line with anxiety now
And she had enough, and he had plenty

Somebody get me out of here
Anybody get me out of here
Somebody get me out of here
Get me the fuck right out of here

So far away
I don't want to stay
Get me out of here right now
I just wanna be free
Is there a possibility?
Get me out of here right now

This life like dream ain't for me

[Part 3: Nobody Likes You!]

[Written and sung by Mike Dirnt]

I fell asleep while watching spike TV
After 10 cups of coffee and you're still not here

Dreaming of a song
But something went wrong
And I can't tell anyone
'Cause no one's here

Left me here alone
And I should have stayed home
After 10 cups of coffee I'm thinking

(Where'd you go?)
Nobody likes you, everyone left you
(Where'd you go?)
They're all out without you havin' fun
(Where'd you go?)
Everyone left you, nobody likes you
(Where'd you go?)
They're all out without you havin' fun

(Where'd you go..go..go..go..)

[Part 4: Rock And Roll Girlfriend]

[Written and sung by Tre Cool]

Geez! [*sigh*]

I got a rock and roll band
I got a rock and roll life
I got a rock and roll girlfriend
And another ex-wife

I got a rock and roll house
I got a rock and roll car
I play the shit out the drums
And I can play the guitar

I got a kid in New York
I got a kid in The Bay
I haven't drank or smoked nothin'
In over 22 days
(Don't wanna be an American idiot)
So get off my case
Off of my case
Off of my case

[Part 5: We're Coming Home Again]

Here they come marching down the street
Like a desperation murmur of a heart beat
Coming back from the edge of town
Underneath their feet

The time has come and it's going nowhere
Nobody ever said that life was fair now
Go-carts and guns are treasures they will bear
In the summer heat

The world is spinning 'round
And 'round out of control again
From the 7-11 to the fear of breaking down
So send my love a letterbomb
And visit me in hell
We're the ones going

We're coming home again
We're coming home again

I started fuckin' running
As soon as my feet touched ground
We're back in the Barrio
But to you and me, that's Jingle Town that's

We're coming home again
We're coming home again
We're coming home again
We're coming home again
We're coming home again
We're coming home again
We're coming home again
We're coming home again

Nobody likes you
Everyone left you
They're all out without you havin' fun

Green Day Homecoming Comments
  1. noe gaspar

    2:48 my favorite part(the bassline and "wohoo" make me eargasm..)

  2. Mitchell Marquez

    That end part. It just hits you. Go home. Every one of you reading this . Don't make your home where you are, find it where you've been and left.

  3. Forzival

    Honestly, I would’ve preferred if this was the very last track. The nobody likes you at the end gave me chills and Whatsername kinda just dissipated all of that.

  4. Sophie 'Snap' Athena

    Easily the most underrated Green Day song.

  5. M A B S

    I Dun care
    well, I care and my name is Tyler Joseph
    only me??

  6. Miss

    I used to love this music growing up and it still holds a special place in my heart; but gosh I can’t half appreciate how melodramatic and self pitying it all is listening to it now. I still love these bands but the majority of it is just a bunch of white privileged men like literally whining over nothing 😂 just listening to it from an adult perspective looking back on it

    Todd Reyes

    You are an idiot

  7. コルサント

    My theme song !
    This song always encourages me

  8. Aidan King

    0:19 Hi, Only.

  9. Bungee

    That's fucked Up Jimmy ._.

  11. Rio Ferdinand

    DORA 5

  12. Luan F

    "Nobody likes you
    Everyone left you
    Theyre all out without you
    Having fun"

    I think they're speaking with YOU.

  13. Sarah Lund

    "Somebody get me out of here. Get me the fuck right out of here!!"-exactly what I'm thinking right now xD

  14. Francisco de Asís Fernández

    Underrated song.

  15. C.S. Ecton

    Very depressing and true but still a good song

  16. Mr. Yeeteson Peterson

    Everyone talks about every song on American Idiot, but fuck, this song kicks ass

  17. Bine Scher


  18. Silly SillyPutty

    OMFG I REMEMBER THIS SONG I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Jason Shaneyfelt

    For all the love Jesus of Suburbia gets as Green Day's Magnum Opus song, I never hear anyone talk about Homecoming and it's damn near pretty close to Jesus of Suburbia in my opinion.

  20. Peter parkers ass

    Holy shit I just realized that Mike sang the whole "I fell asleep while watching TV" he sounds like Billie and hes really good at singing lol

  21. MrHeartGrenade

    The beginning of We're coming home again is eargasmic

  22. Yorrito Kun

    Whenever he says”Jimmy died today”
    I get chills

  23. TFR Elevate

    6:00 you can hear Billie Joe singing the American Idiot


    Holy shit you can haha

  24. Lily B

  28. Holden Cornfield

    So apparently the limit is 9 cups of coffee

    linette somerton

    Lol 😆

  29. dark vaper

    Since 1993 or 1994 for the most of the world green day has been the most influential band in the world I said it in 94 and I'll say it again Green Day is the band that all other bands will be judged

  30. Dragonex

    It's that time of the year fellas

  31. Allan A. Chornak

    Arguably the most overlooked green day song of all time, which is a fucking crime considering it is one of their greatest songs ever

  32. E Brodsky

    Did they sample Cars?

  33. Aryan Saxena

    Best parts start at 0:00, 2:24 and 6:07.

  34. Nathan Dube

    2:30 what the heck happened to Tre Cools Leg?!?!!!?

  35. Denki Kaminari

    rewatching this video after 4 years and seeing my comment is kinda surreal. i’m doing better now and i still love this song and i still love green day lol

  36. Tsungremchang Aier

    Can any1 make songs like this????

  37. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    I swear to God that voice is fucking magestic.

  38. emo is over

    I watched a recording of the Broadway Idiot and in my opinion this is the song they did best.
    And now every I time I hear the lyrics "Jimmy died today, he blew his brains up into the bay" It makes me remember the scene where Jimmy got a gun pulled on them by the Jesus of Suburbia

  39. Talhe

    5:59 'don't wanna be an american idiot!'

  40. Will

    This kind of represents how fast my mood changes

  41. Elton Lucien

    4:49 I thought Mike said cocksucker for the longest.

  42. Juani Ortelli

    7:16 "born in the 50's " - The police

  43. Mr. Yeeteson Peterson

    That transition between "Nobody Likes You" and "Rock And Roll Girlfriend" though👌

  44. Matthias Cerebri

    The thing that Sticks most to me is the Drum Roll before the Sound mixes up with the exact same Rhythm of the bass. So where Mike sings...

  45. Yobskie Abucejo

    we're back in the barrio
    And to you and me, that's jingle town that's

  46. La Ndolo Bima

    Rocker legand, i always enjoy everry songs from this band

  47. Unhappy Attendant Ughh

    God I love this alum. I’m drunk but remind me to get it tatted

  48. Something about things _795

    My favorite part is mikes part

  49. Isai Huachaca

    Hello 2019

  50. sean Douglas

    The bass is strong with this one

  51. Erebear

    "I started fuckin' runnin' soon as my feet touched ground.."
    Me too..

  52. jerome macaheleg

    I watched an interview that said that Mike, Tre, and Billie made their own little song and then added other parts to make come together. And yes Billie Joe said it.

  53. Raf de los Reyes

    Whenever I feel down and depressed, alone with the fear of missing out, "Nobody Likes You" always plays in my head. But whenever I go to every single Green Day video on YouTube, I truly feel like I am not alone, because somehow, somewhere, someone feels the same.

  54. Andrew Collet

    Memories hitting me like a truck. I'm sobbing.

  55. w4r

    this song is basically a better and underrated version of Jesus of Suburbia

  56. Garrett Hackett

    if you listen closely at 5:58 you can hear do you wanna be an american idiot

  57. Martin Temelkov

    Just wanted to remind all of you that the saxophone solo during Tre's part is fucking amazing.

    The ending of Dirnt's part into Tre's part is my favorite part.

  67. ThunderstruckGaming

    3:20 - Me when I go to school.

  68. logan Schardt

    This is like the the bohemian rhapsody of punk rock 💀

    Who's with me

  69. logan Schardt

    Do you dream too much,
    Do you think what you need is a crutch?

    Green day is the only band that will convince me to stay up until 3 am thinking about the story of St. Jimmy

  70. Banisha Surong

    What's better?
    JOS or Homecoming?

    Unijimmy 27

    Banisha Surong I personally prefer Homecoming, but JOS is great too

  71. James Brendan

    This would be such a good song to end a movie

  72. Sam Miles

    Green Day is so good.

  75. The Echo and Mary Chain

  76. Carter Morris

    Whats the screaming saying at the end

  77. James Brendan

    the first part of this song is so good

  78. Sophie W

    Am I the only one who first heard the broadway version of this song? Yes? Okay.

  79. Danilo Rocha

    I love this band, I'm from Brazil.

  80. BlueFlameBird

    Is it bad when you feel some of these songs in the pit of your soul? I think I need to follow saint jimmys example and get the fuck out and start new

  81. rrtkddigimon0

    I just want to point out : I spent years of my life wondering what the fuck could 7-11 mean, what kind of metaphor is it... Until earlier this year when I found out that there is market in the US called 7-11.

  82. elia .07

    The times when I really listened to Green Day were some of the best days of my life, very young and careless. Coming back to them is definitely bitter sweet.

  83. Yo It's me, Dawg

    Mike has an amazing voice.

  84. SAILER

    The Who

  85. Emma Harlow

    My only complaint is I feel Homecoming would have been better as a last song than Whatsername. It's more of a big finale

  86. eviestampy11 cat

    Am I supposed to love green day I'm 11 lol

    Olive is spooky

    Everyone can like any music, good taste, I'm thirteen and have been listening to this kind of stuff for years. What other bands do you like?

    hey thats my chrome background. the world really is amazing. i also know every word to this song from my Green Day addiction, gotta be my fave song lol

  92. HeresMikey!

    I think I'm sick because I just LOVE that part "Jimmy died today. He blew his brains out into the bay"

    Olive is spooky

    I love that verse too, as well as the 'after ten cups of coffee, I'm thinking' part, because that's too relateable

  93. JosiePie Watson

    Honestly this is such an underrated song. Whenever I ask anyone about it no one know it.
