She is my drama queen
She is so wild and reckless
She is my drama queen

She dangles from her necklace
Daddy's little bundle of joy
Out of a magazine
Everyone’s drama queen
Is old enough to bleed now

She is my drama queen
Her life is now unfolding
There goes my drama queen
What do you think she's holding?

Aye little drama queen
How did you find your savior?
Oh little drama queen
You better call a lawyer

Daddy's little bundle of joy
Out of a magazine
Everyone’s drama queen
Is old enough to bleed now

Aye little drama queen
From here to San Francisco
Everyone’s drama queen
I think she’s going psycho

Daddy's little bundle of joy
Out of a magazine
Everyone’s drama queen
Is old enough to bleed now

She's old enough to bleed now
She's old enough to bleed now

    General Comment:Yeah actually i think it could have been written by mike or tre, coz i think it makes more sense with it being about a daughter than adrienne, or one of billie's sons lol. Especially because Estelle, Mike's daughter is 13, and Ramona, Tre's daughter, is 16, so the "life unfolding" plus the "drama queen" thing of being a teenager, also possibly the "old enough to bleed" (wtf btw) indicates this. cute song though XD

    Song Meaning:To me this simply just means that your daughter is growing up. The "Old enough to bleed now" just means she'll be getting hurt instead of being little, where everything was perfect in your mind. She's old enough to understand the world. To understand the cruel and ugly things, but also the beautiful things.

    I love this song, it would be perfect for me and my father's dance at my wedding

    General Comment:I'm suprised no one's commented about this one yet. It's beautiful song, pretty much about gorwing up. I have a feeling the song is about Adrienne,or possibly maybe Joey, unless Billie didn't write it. If Mike or Tre wrote it, it might make a little more sense since they both have daughters. But overall it's a pretty song. You can find it on Green Dayauthority under downloads

    General Comment:The lyrics remind of Olsen twins (or ex-child-actresses in general). I know they are not of recent topics but they have been playing this song for some years now(or been keeping it up their sleeves). "Daddy's little bundle of joy" that were the Full House sisters maybe?

    General Comment:The part about being "old enough to bleed" kind of grossed me out.

    General Comment:the lyrics are definitely ambiguous on purpose. i think its about a girl who grows up and she goes crazy and she decides to shoot up people. "You better call a lawyer. Out of a magazine" Emphasis: "she's old enough to bleed now," she's not afraid to die cause she's old enough that she doesn't care. "wild and reckless. what do you think she's holding?"

    My Interpretation:I feel like this song is about a teenager growing up. The first time they are experiencing the pressures of the real world. I thought at first that "She dangles from her necklace" was about committing suicide, and that "Daddy's little bundle of joy out of a magazine" was saying that this once "happy little girl" is now a living product of the media, that she is just like what she sees in the magazines. "Everyone’s drama queen Is old enough to bleed now." This could be saying that she is old enough to self harm now. I feel like the ending wear it repeated "She is old enough to bleed now." was saying that she is old enough to be hurt, sad, depressed and angry. That she is old enough to stop living a care free childhood that she is now a adolescent in a media ridden world. That she is old enough to feel insecure and suicidal. That "daddies bundle of joy" is now gone.

    My Interpretation:I think it's about a girl (daughter of the narator) that is growing up, becoming a teenager. The song sort of sounds like a lullaby because while the father accepts she's growing up, he wants her to know that whatever happens, she'll still be his little girl.

    She's a drama queen both for the classic baby tantrums as much as the classic "I hate my parents!" teenage tantrums. He's letting her grow up and experience things that everyone must learn at some point; for example, "You better call a lawyer" and "She is so wild and reckless" since a usual symptom of becoming a teenager is acting rebellious and sometimes getting in trouble with the law. Throughout the song you can see she experiences darker turns in life that turn her from a drama queen into a young woman "I think she's going phsyco", "From here to San Fransico" and "Her life is now unfolding" because she is experiencing the memories that will shape her into who she is.

    A line that's repeated a few times is "She's old to bleed now" which I first I only thought of as "she's old enough to get her heart broken and get hurt now" but if you let it sink in a bit, you realize it may also be speaking about her period, which starts during puberty. I like to think it means both she is a teenager and gets her period and she's old enough to get emotionally hurt now.

    Thanks for reading my looong interpretation!

    General Comment:If you're looking to make some extra money on the side, or something to do in the meantime, you could try freelance writing. Freelance writing is especially popular in the age of the internet, as a competent writer, if they find the right websites, can write articles and make some decent green from the enterprise. You DO have to know what you're doing – as most article sites taking submissions won't pay you, or at least much, if you can't read or write well. If the condition is such that the verisimilitude of a persons vocabulary is comprised, whether through ignorance or through incompetence, the likelihood of getting extra cash from personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/10/20/freelance-writing-extra-cash/ ">freelance writing is slim.
