"Stop Drop and Roll" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
Sixteen and a son of a bitch
Got a gun and a strychnine twist
Little girl on the graveyard shift
Out of control and doesn't give a shit

I don't wanna go down. I don't wanna go down.
I don't wanna go down. I don't wanna go down.

Gonna lose control!
So stop, drop, and roll.

So, baby-doll, don't you lose your touch.
You take it all cause it's never gonna take too much.

Dirty mouth and the look of death.
My tequila coming' from your breath.
Your lips are like a cherry bomb with teeth
Losing control, break my sanity.

I don't wanna go down. I don't wanna go down.
I don't wanna go down. I don't wanna go down.

Gonna lose control!
So stop, drop, and roll.

So, baby-doll, don't you lose your touch.
You take it all cause it's never gonna take too much.

I don't wanna go down. I don't wanna go down.
I don't wanna go down. I don't wanna go down.

Gonna lose control!
So stop, drop, and roll.

Alright!

So, baby-doll, don't you lose your touch.
You take it all cause it's never gonna take too much.

So, baby-doll, don't you lose your touch.
You take it all cause it's never gonna take too much.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a teenage relationship between two "bad kids"

    A boy who's "sixteen and a son of a bitch", the typical bad 50's bad boy with a leather jacket and jeans.

    A girl who's "out of control, doesn't give a shit"

    Both of them get into a relationship (not exactly a romantic one, but more as friends with benefits who simply enjoy have fun fun together) and the two of them go around being troublesome and not having or wanting control above their actions.

    They both start getting closer and closer but never get to something cheesy or dramatic of a relationship, "Dirty mouth and the look of death, my tequila coming from your breath". And her attitude starts getting more and more attractive to him until a point where he's absolutely crazy for her "Your lips are like a cherry bomb with teeth, Losing control, break my sanity!"

    The first verse of the chorus explains the simplicity of their relationship "So Baby-Doll, don't you lose your touch," and the second shows how he's getting more attached to her every second they spend together "You take it all, 'cause it's never gonna take too much".
