During Verse 2 there is a chord that is picked and arpegiated.  This
chord, whilst hard to form makes drop D tuning sound so much fuller,
and is a good chord to know.  This one basically is BbSus2, and it 
should be fingered with the pinky on the B string, the ring finger 
on the G string, and the index finger doing the barre.

Lyrics

She paints her nails and she don't know
He's got her best friend on the phone
She'll wash her hair
His dirty clothes are all he gives to her
And he's got posters on the wall
Of all the girls he wished she was
And he's everything to her 

Chorus:
Her boyfriend, he don't know
Anything about her
He's too stoned, nintendo
I wish that i could make her see
She's just the flavor of the week 

It's friday night and she's all alone
He's a million a miles away
She's dressed to kill
The tv's on
He's connected to the sound
And he's got pictures on the wall
Of all the girls he's loved before
And she knows all his favorite songs 

Chorus:
Her boyfriend, he don't know
Anything about her
He's too stoned, nintendo
I wish that i could make her see
She's just the flavor of the week 

Yeah! 

Her boyfriend, he don't know
Anything about her
He's too stoned, he's too stoned
He's too stoned, he's too stoned 

Chorus:
Her boyfriend, he don't know
Anything about her
He's too stoned, nintendo
I wish that i could make her see
She's just the flavor of the week 

Yeah she's the flavor of the week
She makes me week


Not 100% sure about the solo, but it'll do
Tabbed using Good ol' fashion Notebook!
