The Lyrics

Inspired by Chris Bodily's "William Shatner Sings..." series (mostly Britney Spears songs), this is the third in a series that also includes Perry, in character as Chandler Bing of "Friends," singing "Piano Man" and "Born to Run." Like the Shatner series, Chandler's phrasing wreaks havoc... WITH the pacing, but I'm hoping enough of you liked "Friends" to get the jokes.
(guitar and handclap opening)

Somebody's gonna hurt someone
before the night IS through!
Somebody's gonna come undone.
There's nothing WE can do!
Everybody's looking strange at Phoebe.
What did she say THIS time?
Everybody wants Joey TO get this part
in TV drama, crime.

There's gonna be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!
There's gonna be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!
Yes, I know!

Ross and I used to stay up late.
These days, can't hold out THAT long.
But now, I've got a reason TO go home.
Monica's got nothing on!

This night is gonna last forever.
Last all, all episode long.
Before sex, Mon has to clean the place up
so she can have her "Chanandler Bong"!

There's gonna be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!
There's gonna be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!
Yes, I know!

There's gonna be a heartache tonight!
I'm witty and bright!
But out goes the light
I can't get IT right!

There'll be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!

(over guitar break)
Oh, God! Can open! Worms everywhere!

(handclaps)

Somebody's gonna hurt someone
(Rachel: "Somebody!")
before the night IS through!
Somebody's gonna come undone.
There's nothing WE can do!
Everybody's looking strange at Rachel.
Her hair's mussed tonight.
(Phoebe: "Ooh, wooh!")
Everybody thinks she took a little Ross
and now it's come out right!

There's gonna be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!
There's gonna be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!
So let's go!

Now, we can help out Joey's spinoff
we can write new "Studio"
we can go back to the Broadway stage
but either way, you know
there'll be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!
There's gonna be a heartache tonight!
A heartache tonight, I know!
And now, you... ALSO know!

(over guitar break)
Or, maybe it's so NOT true!

(drum solo close)
