"Scumbag" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
You come around every now and then
Your clothes are different but you're still the same
Why else would you come here?
Scumbag on a mission
You're telling me that it's been awhile
Shit eating grin and a brand new lie
Somebody let you come here
Scumbag with permission

Never thought I'd see
The likes of you around this place
What's the special occasion?
Did you run out of friends?

Here you are, comin' 'round again
And things are different but you still pretend
You've got a reason to come here
Scumbag with ambition
And now you're telling me that things have changed
And you'll be leavin' in a couple of days
You're gonna change the world someday
Scumbag with a vision

It must be nice to know
You've got it all figured out
But from where I'm sittin'
It's the same thing again and again

You never stop to think
Before you open up your mouth
Cause every time you do
It's the same thing again and again

    General CommentThis song is actually about someone who "Comes around every now and then" and he mooches off of all his family members and friends. He comes around every now and then with some bullshit speech, and he convinces them that he just needs a tiny favor, and he'll pay them back, and, i don't know, every family has one relative like that.
