The Girl Next Door (Demo)

Music & Lyrics by Pat Flanakin

I've been living on this street
For such a long time
I'm suburbian born

Nothing ever happens here
Nothing happens here
I'm suburbian bored

Oh but pretty Linda Dunaway
Lives next door to me
She used to be my friend

But now she thinks I'm a dork
Won't even look my way
She treats me like a kid

The girl next door
She doesn't talk to me at all no more
The girl next door
Much too busy with life, her love, her hair, her toys

Yesterday the Dunaways threw a party
I watched it from my yard
Her papa got her a Miata for her birthday
Let me tell you, life's too hard


I'm sittin' on my front porch wishing I could drive her stupid car
Is everybody happy, well I'm feelin' crappy, so I guess I'll just play my guitar

BREAK (like a kid would play a guitar)

Here comes Linda Dunaway pulling up her driveway
She's got the ragtop down
I'm gonna tell her, hey I'm your feller
She's gonna run me down
