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-----------
   D    A    B    G 
This is played 4x.  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             A              D            A 
Why can't you stay here, you know it's so 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                 A            D             A
She said it's all right, we're gonna be good 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.
Luke
