Why Do All Girls Think They're Fat?  Reel Big Fish

Song: Why Do All Girls Think They're Fat?
Band: Reel Big Fish
Album: Keep Your Reciept (1996)
Written by my hero, Aaron Barrett
Transcribed by Luke Knox (lukeknox@iname.com)
This is an awesome song by my favorite band, Reel Big Fish. If you're
confused and bewildered by the song title, that's probably because you
don't have Keep Your Reciept, a 5-song album released before Turn the Radio
Off. I suggest you buy KYR, it has a great version of Unity (by OpIvy!) on it.
Anyway, here it is:
Intro: (quiet)
 
 E--2-2------0---2---3--3--------------
 B--3---3----2---3---3----3------------
 G--2-----2--2---4---4------4----------
 D--0--------2---4---5--------4-4-2---- (Played 3x)
 A----------------------------------4--
 E-------------------------------------

[D] [A] [Bm] [G]  
1 2 3 4 1 2 3 Go!
 
 E-----------------------------
 B-----------------------------
 G--7--------------------------
 D--7----7----9----5--4-4-2-0--
 A--5----7----9----5-----------
 E-------5----7----3-----------

Thi[D]s is [A]playe[B]d 4x.[G] The 4th time, play this riff instead of the one above:
 
 E--3-2---3-2-------
 B------3-----3-3r--
 G------------------
 D------------------
 (Note: This riff: D--4-4-2-0- is played many times during the song, and 

is called simply "riff" in my transcription.)
Verse:(all barre chords, and played fast. Listen to CD for rythym.)
[D] [A] [F#] [G]  
There's a (little girl) on my mind.
(Little girl) all the time.
(Little girl) there's always one.
(Little girl) look what she's done.
G C B (Heavy Palm mute)
She drags a tear from my eye.
G C B (Palm mute)
You know I sure hate to lie.
[G]Why can't you [A]stay here, you [D]know it's so [A]beautiful,
G A D D D (riff)
and how come all girls think they're fat?
Chorus:
D D A B G (riff)
Hey Hey Hey She's so pretty.
D D A B G (riff)
Hey Hey Hey My friend.
D D A B G (riff) D D B A G
Hey Hey Hey I feel stupid. Again.
(Back to: D A F# G)
(She said) it's all right.
(She said) come over tonight.
(She said) my mom's not home.
(She said) I'm all alone.
G C B (palm mute)
She took me back to her house.
G C B (pm)
She pushed me down on the couch.
[G]She said it's all [A]right, we're [D]gonna be good [A]friends,
G A D D D (riff)
cause the kissing only leads to the end.
(Repeat chorus)
Over bass solo:
[D] [A] [F#] [G]  
Guitar Solo: (*the low part is played on a second guitar)
 
 E---------7s5----10-12-10--14-15-14--19-17--
 B-8-7---------10----------------------------
 G-----9-7-----------------------------------
 D-------------------------------------------
 A-------------------------------------------
 E-------------------------------------------
 E----------------------------------------3-2-0---
 B---------------8-7-----------------------------3-
 G-------------------9-7r----------0---0-2---------
 D---------------------------4-2-4---4-------------
 A-*5----------5----------------------------------
 E----5-2-2-3b---5-2-2-3b-------------------------

Then play chorus 2x, and that's it!
I hope this sounds good to you. Let me know of any other ways of playing
this song, especially the solo.
