Just so you're clear; I have never written anything like this in tab before so hopefully you can understand 
it! I know it's not perfect - it's not really very similar to the original but I think with the right rhythm
it sounds good to sing along with! I've only put beginning of sentences to show which word should be
spoken where, full lyrics are underneath the tab. If my rhythm is 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and: I play the notes
on 1, 2, (2)and, 4. For example:
                                E: ----------2 (Played on 4)
                                B: ----2------ (Played on 2)
                                G: -----------
                                D: -------4--- (Played on 2(and))
                                A: -----------

FULL LYRICS:
(VERSE 1)
I'm that girl you think that's got it figured out.
But I walk around, with a head full of doubt.
The cruelest words about me, come from my own mouth - la da de, la de da.
Yeah, I'm that girl, who wants what I ain't got who looks in the mirror, and sees all that I'm not.
Wish I could jump off this reckless train of thought - la da de, la de da.
Well it's a cruel, cruel world.

(CHORUS)
For Collie and her golden, home-coming crown.
For Penny's dirty secret getting spread all over town.
For Hanna and her skinny jeans, so damn scared to eat.
Well the DJ haunts the halls,
And the boys they never call,
And I guess we're all the same after all.
Nervous girls.

(VERSE 2)
Well I'm that girl who gave my heart up,
Got close to picture perfect, or at least close enough to watch the pieces scatter, then pick 'em all up.
La da de, la de da.
Oh but I still believe in love.

(CHORUS)
For Heather waiting tables, trying to pick up from the past.
For Jenny with that diamond ring and a vow that didn't last.
For Alice turning thirty, looking through that looking glass.
Well the DJ haunts the halls,
And the boys they never call,
And I guess we're all the same after all.
Nervous girls.

(BRIDGE)
I'm scared and I'm brave, or somewhere between the two.
I'm beautifully strong, and tragically confused.
Yeah, I'm that girl, that's just like you.

(FINAL (HALF) CHORUS)
Well the DJ haunts the halls,
And when the boys finally call...
We're not sure that we want 'em after all
Nervous Girls.
