"Ayleen" is a Weezer demo, written by Rivers Cuomo at his apartment on Sepulveda Boulevard in Los Angeles in 1999. The song was featured on a 2000 demo tape submitted by the band to Interscope/Geffen in hopes of receiving approval for a third album[1]. The song was in contention for The Green Album, but at some point after the arrival of Ric Ocasek, the song was cut. The song was among hundreds of Cuomo's demos leaked online in November of 2020.

Lyrics

Ayleen
Why don't you come on home, girl?
You're shining like a bulb
And you can't wait to be alone
Yeah, yeah

Mamie(?)
Just whacha' think you're doin'?
I love her like the wind
And I can't wait to be alone
Yeah, yeah

Sundays
Are such a special week day
Might go insane, cray cray
And I can't wait to take you home
Yeah, yeah

???
Just whacha' think you're doin'?
I love her like the wind
And I can't wait to take you home
Yeah, yeah
