I wrote her off for the tenth time today
And practiced all the things I would say
But she came over, I lost my nerve
I took her back and made her deserve

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

Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah

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

Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah

When she's saying, all that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she saying, all men are 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

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

Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah

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
