"Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori" is the seventh track from the White Album.

Rivers has stated that "Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori" is his favorite song from The White Album. He expanded on the song's development, both lyrically and sonically, on the SongExploder podcast. In the podcast, Rivers explains that he compiles a Spotify playlist of songs with "cool chord-progressions" and that he lifted the chord progression from the song Walk Away Renée by The Left Banke. Rivers titled an early version of the demo "Awaken Early" (a partial anagram of "Walk Away Renée). The final song's title came from an overheard conversation at a party at Rivers' daughter's school. One mother said that their husband called her "School-Year Elaine" during the year and "Summer Elaine" after the school year had ended, and another mother commented that her husband had two names for her as well, one of them being "Drunk Dori". Both mothers were thanked in the liner notes for The White Album. Cuomo went on to explain that he uses a spreadsheet to compile stream-of-consciousness lyrics by syllable.
