LYRICAHOLIC VOL. III / THE OFFSPRING - "Self Steem"


Creo que ha sido la primera letra de canción que me paré a traducir y comprender por completo allá por 1994, cuando salió Smash.


También van unas cuantas fotos de Dexter Holland y su banda en su momento más guaperas. Porque inexplicablemente en un proceso similar al de Axl Rose (y es muy curioso porque es Axl el que lleva ahora las trenzas y la americana...), en la actualidad ha olvidado todo acerca del increible estilo que poseía y parece un punkie gordo dominguero, como un viejo intentando vestirse de quinceañero...Recuerdo que era un icono para mi, hasta el punto de que me hice las mismas trenzas y llevaba las mismas Ray Ban Balorama!!




I think this was the first lyrics I've tried to understand and translate then in 1994, when Smash came out.


I also include some pictures from Dexter Holland and his band in his hottest moment. Because in a unexplicable proccess similar to Axl Rose's, along the years he's forgetting everything about his rad style to become a fat punk, trying to dress like a teenager...I remember he was an icon for me because I also braided myself as him and I used to wear the same Ray Ban Balorama Sunglasses!!

 


THE OFFSPRING - "Self Steem"



La la la la la la la la la la

I wrote her off for the tenth time today
And practiced all the things I would say
When 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 man cause I like the abuse
I know she's playing with me
That's okay cause I've got no self esteem

Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah (Repeat three times)

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

Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah (Repeat three times)

When she's saying, all that she want's only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she saying, that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend
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 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
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah (Repeat three times)

When she's saying, all that she want's 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 speak 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!
