Appearances

Overview

This song was premiered live by Weezer in Korea during the Summer of 2009. Rivers has stated that the song is about a girl at his High School Reunion that was not "hot" in High School, but in the intervening years between High School and the Reunion she had gotten "hot".


Band Commentary

Rivers: "The Girl Got Hot" I wrote after I've been to my high school reunion and there was a woman there that was just stunningly beautiful and I was scratching my head trying to figure out "Wait. I don't remember her. Who is this?". And then I remembered her as this girl that no one even noticed back in high school. And just over the years she had totally blossomed. So I wrote the song "The Girl Got Hot". [1]

Lyrics

I went to a show last Saturday night
The band was doing their thing
A moshpit started and then the crowd parted
And there was Kiki Dee
I knew this girl back in junior high school
When nobody gave her a look
But look at what we got, the girl got hot
Switched up and re-wrote the book

With satin tights, boots so white
Leopard handbag, out-of-sight!
What used to mean a little now means a lot
O my goodness me, the girl got hot

The first thing I did when I got up the nerve
Was say "hey baby, what's up?"
She kept on dancing, refused my romancin'
And that's when I fell in love
I stepped to the floor with her best friend Jill
And tried to thicken the plot
The thing I finally found with these other girls in town
She got hot and they did not

With satin tights, boots so white
Leopard handbag, out-of-sight!
What used to mean a little now means a lot
Oh my goodness me, the girl got hot

With satin tights, boots so white
Leopard handbag, out-of-sight!
Eagle feather in her feathered hair
Dash of rouge, buyer beware
What used to mean a little now means a lot
O my goodness me, the girl got hot
