The Girl Next Door

Katy Perry - 2011 Pre-GRAMMY Gala & Salute To Industry Icons Honoring David Geffen

 

 

 

Got a call from my friend

She saw my picture again

In a magazine

We laughed out loud

‘Cuz she said “remeber when…

This was all a silly dream?

Now I wake up every day

In a different city

A smile on my face

Somebody pinch me

She said “all the world’s a satge”

But girl you know

Those cameras and lights

Won’t ever change me

 

I don’t drink champagne

When I’m back home with my friends

We sip on tea on the porch

‘Cuz I’m still the girl next door

No fancy things when I come off tour

I slip back into my jeans

‘Cuz I’m still the girl next door

 

It’s amazin’ to hear people singin’ along

Hear the radio playin’ my song

I still get butterflies

Still get nervous inside

In the spotlight

 

Now every now n then

On a friday night

Cruisin’ down to the dive bar

We waste the night away

Spend saturday sleepin’ in late

Those were the good days

 

I don’t drink champagne

When I’m back home with my friends

We sip on tea on the porch

‘Cuz I’m still the girl next door

No fancy things when I come off tour

I slip back into my jeans

‘Cuz I’m still the girl next door

 

And even when I’m miles away

I’ll always have the roots from where I came

Cuz when it all fades away

My home will still be the same

 

Yeah eh

Yeah…

 

I don’t drink champagne

When I’m back home with my friends

We sip on tea on the porch

‘Cuz I’m still the girl next door

No fancy things when I come off tour

I slip back into my jeans

‘Cuz I’m still the girl next door
