Charles… there have been a few hits posted to this site in the last few weeks and yours is one of them in my opinion. And before I go further, the song is releasable in this form as the production and singer were just first rate!

I love the catch phrase “I’m the sister of the girl next door”... my word, it got me laughing! And what an evil spin on the sister of in just a fun sexy way… and of life as it really is at times. This must be done with a girl with an attitude when on stage. THIS HAS TO BE TAKEN BY A MAJOR FEMALE ARTIST. It is a hit. Heck, even I like it! LOL

Robert, man, you made my day with your positive reaction! I wrote this a few years ago for my band and we performed it regularly. I decided to have a pro demo made and I am pleased with it, as I always am with Panda. They are also creating a version for me that eliminates the old school rhythm guitar riff for something more contemporary. Thanks again! Chuck

Guys, maybe it’s just me, but I don’t get the “sister” connection.  Don’t get me wrong, “sister of the girl next door” rolls off the tongue easily and sounds good, but from a lyric perspective, I don’t get it.  Their not related, not sorority sisters, and not enough info to infer they grew up like sisters.

Maybe I’m over analyzing and it’s just words in a song, but if I’m missing something, please let me know what it is.

Chuck… now I am amazed that they will try a different rhythm guitar. Holy heck, I am sold on it in this version. But if you will, please re-post it with the new track added as I would love to compare if it is better or what they are thinking. I really look forward to it.

Hey, Charles!  Thanks for sharing your song.  I get the “sister” thing.  She’s the good girl’s bad sister.  Not a problem there.

However, the thing that I think is a commercial killer is when her sister’s date sneaks back by to pick up the singer.  Uh-oh.  This really makes the sister a back-stabber.  You can’t go hooking up with your sister’s date- especially on the same night!

It’s one thing to make the singer the “bad girl.”  That’s fine for certain artists.  But you’ve gone too far into “bad person” in my opinion.  The singer is just TOO… uh… friendly with all the fellas… to be very likable.  Just too sexual.

I’d give her some other qualities.  Yeah, she’s wild.  Yeah, she drinks.  She’ll dance all night.  She’s a heck of a good time.  But I’d soft sell the sex.  I think it’ll get more commercial if you do.

Hope that helps.  Please pay it forward by leaving a comment on another writer’s song.  Thanks!

Brent,
I had an industry pro that was intrigued by this song but it was rejected by the artist he had in mind for the reason you mentioned. I was happy that the publisher liked it so for me the cup is half full. I wrote it in 2013 and at the time I wasn’t thinking in terms of being commercial or not. I do not intend to change this song but I do take artist’s image into consideration when I write now. Thanks, Chuck

Sister of the Girl Next...

Written by Charles Cater

I’ve been playin’ second fiddle ever since the day she was born
She’s always had it easy, teasing hearts all tattered and torn
She’s got that killer body, the kind you just can’t ignore
She’s so sweet and pretty, the one that all the boys adore

But when it’s love that they’re cravin’, feel like misbehavin’,
I’m the one they’re looking for…..
I’m the SISTER OF THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

I’m watching from the window as he pulls up in a limousine
She steps out looking flawless like the cover of a magazine
While I’m layin’ round drinking whiskey in my old blue jeans
She’s out conversatin’ over fancy wine and fine cuisine

He brings her home from the date, then doubles back through the gate
You know who he’s looking for…..
I’m the SISTER OF THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

(instumental)

When it comes down to pleasin’, anything within reason
Keeps ‘em coming back for more…..
I’m the SISTER OF THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

I won’t say I’m jealous, we all live the life we choose
I’d rather have some fun than be sittin’ ‘round singing the blues
One day she’ll run off and marry some wealthy guy
Well I hope little sister learns the tricks to satisfy

Cause all the straight laced beauty is just a waste of booty
Gotta give ‘em what they’re lookin’ for…..
Like the SISTER OF THE GIRL NEXT DOOR
