(4) Said that i'd meet you
At the Berkley Marina
3am when no one will be found
All i got in mind
Is a Boone's Farm jug of wine
Smash the bottle in the parking lot
But considering our luck
We'll get busted by the cops
Instead of sex we'll go to jail
Another lesson learned and failed

    General Commentlol .. right on fabe! .. it took me about 4 times to finally understand the words in this song, the one phrase that stuck out was "instead of sex we'll go to jail, another lesson learned and failed"

    General Commentthis is the most beautiful song ever writen.

    It's on a CD called Short music for Short people

    General CommentWho is Wilhelm Fink? "Wilhelm" is a German name (pronounced Vil-helm", I know that. Mike Dirt, of Green Day is also in The Frustrators, and in the "thank you's" in the cd "Achtung Jackass" they thank a guy named "Wilhelm Fink"
    Also Greendayauthority.com is a great site for updates and news and averything

    General Commenti just think this a perfect 30 second song about a perfect evening. it's not my favourite green day song (there are so many great ones) but everything about is is perfect.
    i would love to hear a longer version but i think works the way it is
