|: Am F | C G :| 4x
Am                  F         C                     G
I wrote her off for the tenth time today
Am                  F         C                     G
And practised all the things I would say.
Am                  F         C                G
But she came over, I lost my nerve,
Am                  F         C                     G
I took her back and made her dessert.
 
Now I know I’m being used,
That’s okay man ’cause I like the abuse.
Well, I know she’s playing with me,
That’s okay ’cause I’ve got no self esteem.

Припев:
   Am          F         C
Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
     G
Oh yeah, yeah
  Am          F         C
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
   G
Oh yeah, yeah.

We make plans to go out at night,
I wait till 2 then I turn out the light.
This rejection’s got me so low,
If she keeps it up I just might tell her so.
 
Припев.

Dm             B          F               C               Dm

When she’s saying, ah that she wants only me,
           B                       F                        C       
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends.
Dm             B          F            C          Dm
When she saying, all men are like a disease,
           B                          F              C          Dm
Then I wonder how much more I can spend.
          B        F                    C           Dm
Well I guess, I should stick up for myself,
        B                     F                    C 
But I really think it’s better this way.
Dm                     B 
The more you suffer,
C                        G           F                       G   
The more it shows you really care, right? Yeah!
 
Now I’ll relate, this little bit,
That happens more than I’d like to admit.
Late at night, she knocks on my door
She’s drunk again and looking to score.

Now I know I should say no,
But that’s kind of hard when she’s ready to go.
I may be dumb, but I’m not a dweeb –
I’m just a sucker with no self esteem

Припев.

When she’s saying, all that she wants only me,
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends.
When she’s saying, all that I’m like a disease,
Then I wonder how much more I can spend.
 
Well I guess, I should stick up for myself,
But I really think it’s better this way.
The more you suffer,
The more it shows you really care, right? Yeah!
