|Everything Will Be Alright in the End track listing|
"Lonely Girl" is the fourth track on Everything Will Be Alright in the End and the third that was officially released prior to the album's release.
The liner notes for Everything Will Be Alright in the End groups songs by one of three themes. "Lonely Girl" is grouped under the category "Belladonna" (songs about Cuomo's relationships with women). Fans often speculate that "Lonely Girl" originated during the Green Album sessions (wherein Weezer last worked with producer Ric Ocasek), due to sharing a similar structure to songs from that period. A song titled "Homely" (not to be confused with "Homely Girl") appears in the Catalog O' Riffs as #231, dated October 27, 2000. Shortly after the released of the album, an instrumental-only version was leaked online. In December 2017, an early version of the song was leaked, along with the rest of the album.

My lonely girl
So baby come on
I know how to dance
And I am the only one who ever takes a chance
Give it a try
You're not gonna die
Unless you refuse to live and hide away tonight
Can't you relate?
Open your arms
And let me come in
I'd never hurt you girl 'cause that would be a sin
Can't you relate?
I know you're scared
I know you're sad
I'm here to help you realize it's not so bad
