"Last of the American Girls" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
She puts her makeup on
Like graffiti on the walls of the heartland
She's got her little book of conspiracies
Right in her hand
She is paranoid like
Endangered species headed into extinction
She is one of a kind
She's the last of the American girls

She wears her overcoat
For the coming of the nuclear winter
She is riding her bike
Like a fugitive of critical mass
She's on a hunger strike
For the ones who won't make it for dinner
She makes enough to survive
For a holiday of working class

She's a runaway of the establishment incorporated.
She won't cooperate
She's the last of the American girls

She plays her vinyl records
Singing songs on the eve of destruction
She's a sucker for
All the criminals breaking the laws
She will come in first
For the end of western civilization
She's an endless war
She's a hero for a lost cause
Like a hurricane
In the heart of the devastation
She's a natural disaster
She's the last of the American girls

She puts her makeup on
Like graffiti on the walls of the heartland
She's got her little book of conspiracies
Right in her hand
She will come in first
For the end of western civilization
She's a natural disaster
She's the last of the American girls

    General CommentLyrically similiar to "She's a Rebel" but quite a bit better lyrically. I'm starting to see that alot of songs are similiar to AI songs, but lyrically are far more well written, w/ an exception of "Know Your Enemy" [which i still think was meant to be repetitive]. Unlike "SaR" Billy Joe[who i'm guessing is writing in Christian's perspective about Gloria?] seems to be more of a bittersweet song about how Americans need to speak out for what we believe and the breed of Americans that do that is dying; and less of a young rebel love kinda thing.
