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 dessert 

Now I know I'm being used
That's okay because I like the abuse 
I know she's playing with me
That's okay 'cause I've got no self-esteem

Oh yeah 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 yeah yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah

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

Now I'll relate this a 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 yeah yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah 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 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, yeah, yeah
