Горловка '97

Когда тебе двадцать, и ты студент иняза и уже довольно бегло шпрехаешь по-английски и прекрасно помнишь текст песни, и вечер воскресенья, и все вернулись "на учебу" из дому с полными сумками, так что водки еще полно, и жареной картошки тоже, и вас набилось в одну комнату в общаге уже двадцать счастливых пьяных человек, и до сессии несколько месяцев, а до диплома - полжизни (года три), и жизнь безоблачна, и душа поёт.
Поёт, что характерно, хором, дурным голосом, и особенно - несложный припев, да так, что на соседнюю улицу слышно.

Это Горловка, девяносто седьмой год.

общ.№4, комната 503(б)


The Offspring - "Self Esteem" 



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, man, 'cause I like the abuse
I know she's playing with me
That's okay 'cause I got no self esteem

We make plans to go out at night
I wait 'til 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

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, 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

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, yeah
