Girl Next Door

Album: Big Day in a Small Town (2016)
  • When you took me home
    You knew who you were taking
    Not some Debbie debutante standing in an apron
    Frying up your bacon

    My house and my mouth and my mind get kinda trashy
    I've never been to jail, but Hell, I wouldn't put it past me, so

    If you want the girl next door
    Some Virgin Mary metaphor
    Your cardboard cutout on the wall
    Your paper or your Barbie doll
    With perfect hair and a perfect dress
    I'm really just the perfect mess
    And I ain't nothing less or nothing more
    So, baby, if you want the girl next door

    Then go next door and go right now
    And don't look back, don't turn around
    And don't call me when you get bored
    Yeah, if you want the girl next door
    Then go next door

    Sorry I ain't sorry
    That I ain't your Marsha Brady, uh-uh
    If I ever met her, bet she'd probably hate me
    'Cause you'd wanna date me

    My heart and my head and my bed can get real twisted
    And you wouldn't be the first to think you could go and fix it

    If you want the girl next door
    Some Virgin Mary metaphor
    Your cardboard cutout on the wall
    Your paper or your Barbie doll
    With perfect hair and a perfect dress
    I'm really just the perfect mess
    And I ain't nothing less or nothing more
    So, baby, if you want the girl next door

    Then go next door and go right now
    And don't look back, don't turn around
    And don't call me when you get bored
    Yeah, if you want the girl next door
    Then go next door

    The thing that turns you on is what you wanna change
    But you have a better chance of slowing down a train

    If you want the girl next door
    Some Virgin Mary metaphor
    Your cardboard cutout on the wall
    Your paper or your Barbie doll
    With perfect hair and a perfect dress
    I'm really just the perfect mess
    And I ain't nothing less or nothing more
    So, baby, if you want the girl next door

    Then go next door and go right now
    And don't look back, don't turn around
    And don't call me when you get bored
    Yeah, if you want the girl next door
    Then go next door Writer/s: BRANDY LYNN CLARK, JESSIE JO DILLON, SHANE L. MCANALLY
