The Most Beautiful Girl (in the Room) (also known as Part-Time Model) begins after Jemaine sees Sally from across the room at Dave's party. Jemaine details his seduction of Sally, describing her as being so beautiful she could be a "part-time model". The musical style of this song is intended to mimic the music of Prince. The song also appears on The Distant Future and their 2008 self titled album.
In addition to Bret and Jemaine, the video features Sally in a fairly heavy role, and includes brief appearances from Dave, who Jemaine converses with, as well as Eugene who can be spotted on the dance floor.
Sung by Bret and Jemaine, the song chronicles Jemaine's attraction to Sally at Dave's party. During the song, Jemaine confronts Dave about whether or not he is going to make a move, to which Dave replies he wasn't, though Jemaine has his doubts. The compliments Jemaine provides Sally with are comically unflattering, such as "a waitress", an "air hostess in the 60's", being beautiful like a "tree", and resembling a high class prostitute. It does, however, prove to have some effect, as Sally agrees to share a kebab with Jemaine, and then accompanies him back to the apartment, where they share a kiss, which is ultimately interrupted by Bret.
Lyrics for The Most Beautiful Girl (in the Room) from Sally
And when you're on the street / Depending on the street / I bet you are definitely in the top three / Good looking girls on the street / Depending on the street / And when I saw you at my mate's place / I thought what...is...she...doing...
At my mate's place / How did Dave get a hottie like that to a party like this? / Good one Dave!!! / Ooohhhh you're a legend, Dave!
I asked Dave if he's going to make a move on you / He's not sure / I said "Dave do you mind if I do?" / He says he doesn't mind / but I can tell he kinda minds / but I'm gonna do it anyway
I see you standing all alone by the stereo / I dim the lights down very low, here we go / You're so beautiful (beautiful) / You could be a waitress / You're so beautiful (beautiful) / You could be an air hostess in the 60s / You're so beautiful... / Well, you could be a part...time...model
And then I seal the deal / I do my moves / I do my dance moves
It's twelve-oh-two / Just me and you / And seven other dudes / Around you on the dance floor / I draw you near / Let's get outta here / Let's get in a cab / I'll buy you a kebab!
Now I can't believe / That I'm sharing a kebab with the most beautiful girl I have ever seen / With a kebab / Ooooooohhh.
Why don't we leave? / Let's go to my house and we can feel each other up on the couch / Oh no. I don't mind taking it slow-oh-oh no-oh-oh, yeah.
Cause you're so beautiful / Like a...tree! / Or a high-class prostitute / You're so beautifu-ul... / Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job / A part-time model! / Spending part of your time, modeling, / and part of your tiiiime, next to meeee-e-e-e-e-ee! / My place is usually tidier than this...
