* "Girl Next Door" by Brandy Clark:
-->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
