"On the Wagon" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
Sometimes it gets real hard,
And I need some kind of output.
For input twice the size of my one inch mind.
So slap me on the hand.
Put it right back down my pants.
Turn me right around.
Kick me in the ass.

Well today I say sweet things,
But tomorrow,
I'll be making up excuses,
For my actions â??cuz it's been so long,
Since I've been in love.
That special kind of feeling.
Guess my best excuse.
I'm on the wagon again.

Well today I say sweet things,
But tomorrow,
I'll be making up excuses,
For my actions â??cuz it's been so long,
Since I've been in love.
That special kind of feeling.
Guess my best excuse.
I'm on the wagon again.

Well I got no real excuse.
I'm on the wagon again.
Oh yeah!

    General CommentI know that the term "On the Wagon" means to be drinking. Green Day has done several other drinking/substance abuse related songs, so it wouldn't surprise me if this song had something to do with alcohol.

    General CommentHmmm, well here's what I thought: It's a love song, and he means when he's back "on the wagon" he's with this person and he's sort of a mess the rest of the time. Or something like that...

    General Commentactually, \'on the wagon\' means he\'s in love again, and he\'s saying he\'s sorry he says stuff to screw it all up, but it\'s been so long since he was in love.

    official meaning. lol
