"Little Sister" is a song written by Rivers Cuomo in 1997 and played at solo shows in Boston that same year. A bootleg of one such performance was recorded onto Cuomo’s own DAT tape and later distributed to fans via the Rivers Correspondence Board. The recording in circulation features Mikey Welsh, Kevin Stevenson of The Shods, and Zeph Courtney of Chevy Heston.

During the mid-90s, websites were formed to catalogue personal anecdotes about Cuomo’s encounters with female groupies, often deriding him as being perverted, and highlighting his affinity for Asian women. As Cuomo explains the basis for "Little Sister" during this live performance: "It’s about girls who follow me around and then write down information on the Internet. Information that I would rather not have my mother read.”



Little girl in the bushes
Little girl in the trees
Want to sin in the darkness
But the girl is watching me

Coming down with diseases
And all the people can see
I’m coming down with diseases
And the people laugh at me

Little sister
Get off my back
Little sister
You got to get off my back

Little girl in the hotel
Little girl on the bus
I want to sin in the darkness
But the sun shines on all of us
