The Office Webisodes: The Girl Next Door

Subtle Sexuality The Girl Next Door Lyrics

Subtle Sexuality The Girl Next Door lyrics

VERSE ONE
(Kelly)
I’m just the girl next door, but that’s how it goes
You only see me as one of your bros
(Erin)
I’m rich and I’m skinny and I have high self-esteem
People say that I could be a pageant queen
(Kelly)
We could be just like Juliet and Romeo
Cleopatra and Marc Antony
Or Marc Anthony and J.Lo
CHORUS
(Kelly)
I’m just the girl next door (She’s just the girl next door)
(Erin)
And she’s totally poor (She’s just the girl next door)
(Kelly)
I wish I could be more (She’s just the girl next door)
I’m/She’s just the girl next door
VERSE TWO
(Kelly)
I’m on a customer service call
I see you two holding hands across the hall
(Erin)
I’ve got 2,000 friends on Facebook
(Kelly)
I eat a ham sandwich alone in my office nook
(Erin)
My blessed family won the lottery
(Kelly)
And my lame one lives in poverty
CHORUS
(Kelly)
I’m just the girl next door (She’s just the girl next door)
(Erin)
And she’s totally poor (She’s just the girl next door)
(Kelly)
I wish I could be more (She’s just the girl next door)
I’m/She’s just the girl next door
HOOK
(Ryan)
Now looking back 40 years later
My one regret is choosing not to date her
The hot girl wasn’t that great
She was a bad mother, she was always late
Shoulda gone for the girl next door from the very start
But it’s too late cuz she died of a broken heart
CHORUS
(Kelly)
I’m just the girl next door (She’s just the girl next door)
(Erin)
And she’s totally poor (She’s just the girl next door)
(Kelly)
I wish I could be more (She’s just the girl next door)
I’m/She’s just the girl next door
CHORUS (repeat)

  1. Kelly Hannon as in Erin’s real name? Haha! Great call-out to the writers on the show!

  2. Over a year between songs is way too long of a wait, tomorrow can’t come soon enough.

  3. I can’t wait, this is going to be awesome!

    @Max: Ellie Kemper is Erin’s real name, it’s just a coincidence that one of the writers has the name Kelly Hannon and the character is Erin Hannon. :) I thought that at first, too! Maybe Erin’s named after her, as her real name is Kelly, but she’s going by her middle name?

  4. This is a downright catchy tune, and I always enjoy bonus Office stuff like the webisodes. But the timing seems odd. Why didn’t they wait a week or two ’til after the season finale, when our “Office withdrawal” pangs are the worst? Now, with a new episode tonight, it will get somewhat lost in the shuffle.

  5. Does anyone else get the feeling this is very Taylor Swift-esque? and especially since she is actually from reading makes it even better. but anyway, they should consider releasing a full-length cd!

  6. OMG! I love Subtle Sexuality and I’m so glad that they’ve made a comeback! Another awesome song :) SO happy.

  7. Anybody else notice that the tombstone was dated for last year? 1980-2010. When was this made?

  8. I keep thinking I couldn’t love Mindy Kaling any more. Then she does something like this!
