"Let Yourself Go" as written by and Billie Joe/pritchard Armstrong....
Shut your mouth 'cause you're talking too much

And I don't give a damn anyway
You always seem to be stepping in shit

And all you really do is complain


Hitch a ride, tell 'em all you like

Small minds tend to think a like


Shut your mouth 'cause you're talking too much

And I don't give a fuck anyway



Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go

Cut the crap 'cause you're screaming in my ear

And you're taking up all of the space

You're really testing my patience again
And I'd rather get punched in the face


You're getting on my every last nerve


Everything you've said I've already heard


I'm sick to death of your every last breath

And I don't give a fuck anyway

Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go

Always fuck fuckin' with my head now
Always fuck fuckin' with my head now
Always fuck fuckin' with my head now
Always fucking with my head and I gotta let it go!

Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go

    General CommentThis very Ramones-esque song is simply about being annoyed by someone and wanting them to shut up. "Let yourself go" means that he wants this person to get over themselves and stop trying so hard to impress people, because it isn't working.

    General CommentThe entire album is obvious. The loss of a "nuclear family" (wiki that), which is a father, a mother and 2 kids... The American dream. Every song is about the character (or author - love ya Billie) being attracted to others and either trying to reconcile with his ex, blow it all to hell, look for some good times with a new mate, etc. I mean come on, "The kids are alright" is an OBVIOUS punk lyric and this time he means it. The whole album is actually really sad. Making a killing, lights camera action (was changed obviously) - I can't get enough, etc etc etc. You are still my sweet 16. Just listen. He's a very vocal dude and he tells what's on his mind. Billie I wish you the best. I hope this is one of your characters, but if not bro, we love you man.
