Chorus Progression:


Verse Riff:

I can't claim credit for figuring this song out.  My friend, who makes me
sick, just sat down while this was playing at my house, grabbed my guitar
and figured it out.

uhhhhh forget that top line up there/
                                    | i kinda messed up the tab..oh well

Subject: LYR (want TAB): Self Esteem by The Offspring

           "Self Esteem" by The Offspring (from the album _Smash_)

(intro: a cappella)
La la, la-la-la, laa la la, la-la-la laa

(Verse 1:)
I wrote her off for the tenth time today
Practiced all of the things I would say
(When) she came over, I lost my nerve:
I took her back and made her desert

I-I know, I'm being used
That's OK, man, 'cause I like the abuse
I-I know, she's playing with me
That's OK 'cause I got no self esteem

(Pre-chorus  -- if you can call it that!)
Oh-h wa-ay, yeah, oh-ho-ho...(etc)...yeah!

(Verse 2:)
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
She keeps it up I just might tell her so


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

Well I guess, I should speak up for myself
But I really think it's better this way:
The more you suffer, the more it shows you really care--

(Verse 3:)
While I 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 lookin' to score

I-I know, I should say no, but
It's kinda hard when she's ready to go
I may be dumb; I'm not a dweeb
I'm just a sucker with no self esteem

(Pre-chorus, 2X)


                                            -- Mike

About the artist behind Self-esteem Tab:

The Offspring (sometimes referred to simply as Offspring) are a popular and influential[8] American punk rock band from Garden Grove, California formed in 1984. Since its inception, the band's line-up has included Dexter Holland (lead vocals, guitar), Noodles (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Greg K. (bass, backing vocals). Their current drummer is Pete Parada, formerly of Face to Face and Saves the Day, who has been with the band since 2007.

Since the release of their 1994 album Smash, which is the best-selling independent label album of all time,[9] The Offspring have achieved commercial success over five albums, with singles such as "Come Out and Play", and "Self Esteem". The band's next three albums, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana and Conspiracy of One, were also successful, reaching platinum certification and gold status respectively.[10][11] Longtime drummer Ron Welty left The Offspring in early 2003, and was replaced by Atom Willard. Later that year, the band released their next album, Splinter, to moderate sales and fairly warm reviews. In 2005, The Offspring released a greatest hits album and toured in support of the compilation. Their next album, titled Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, will be released on June 16, 2008 in Europe and a day later in the United States [12]; it can be streamed for free online, as well.[13]

To date, The Offspring have released eight studio albums, one compilation, four EPs and three DVD's[14], selling over 38 million albums worldwide[9], making them one of the best-selling punk acts of all time.[15] The band is credited, along with fellow California punk bands Green Day and Rancid, with reviving popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s.[16]
