Lyrics Edit

La la la la la
La la la la la

I wrote her off for the tenth time today
Practiced all the things I could say
When she came over, I lost my nerve
I took her back and I made her desert

Well I know I'm being used
But that's okay man 'cus I like the abuse
I may be dumb, but I'm not a dweeb
I'm just a sucker with no self-esteem

Oh ay oh, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah

We make plans, go out at night
I wait 'til 2 then I turn out the light
This rejections got me so low
If she keeps it up, I just might tell her so

Oh ay oh, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah

When she's saying, oh that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she's saying, oh that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I should 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

I'll relate, this little bit
It happens more than I like to admit
Late at night, she knocks on my door
She's drunk again and looking to score

Well I know I should say no
But it'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

Oh ay oh, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah

When she's saying, oh that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she's saying, oh that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I should 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
