Lyrics:

He hit the ground running
At the speed of light			(Verse 1)
The star was brightly shining
Like a neon light

It's your favorite son			(Chorus)
It's your favorite son

A fixture on the talkshows
To the silver screen			(Verse 2)
From here to Colorado
He's a sex machine

(Chorus)

But isn't it a drag?
Isn't it a drag?			(Bridge)
Isn't it a drag?
It's pretty bloody sad
But isn't it a drag?

A clean-cut all-American
Really ain't so clean			(Verse 3)
His royal auditorium
Is a murder scene

(Chorus)
(Bridge)

Well, no one says it's fair		
Turn a teenage lush			(Interlude)
To a millionaire

Now where's your fuckin' champion?
On a bed you laid			(Verse 4)
He's not the all-American
That you thought you paid

It's your favorite son
It's your favorite son
But isn't it a drag?

Legend:

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
b = bend
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
v = vibrato
