The Lyrics

This parody was inspired by the famous Huey Lewis vs. Ray Parker Jr. lawsuit over the song, "Ghostbusters," ripping off "I Want a New Drug." Other than that, this is utter nonsense. Enjoy!
I want a new ghost
One whose first name is Rick
One that will have a ghostly tail
Friendlier than that Casper ghost kid

I want a new ghost
One that isn't too dead
One that won't wail loudly and cry
When I watch Ghostbusters

One that won't make me nervous
One that won't shout out "Boo!"
One that will come up to me, one that will say,
"Yeah, I'm the ghost for you"

I want a new ghost
One that won't spill
Ectoplasmic res'due
Who ya gonna call?!

I want a new ghost
One that is white, not grey
One that won't keep me up all night
One that won't give me nightmares, yeah

One that won't make me nervous
One that won't shout out "Boo!"
One that will come up to me, one that will say,
"Yeah, I'm the ghost for you
I'm the ghost for you baby"

I want a new ghost
One that hovers the room
One whose breath will not stink bad
One that won't eat up all the food

I want a new ghost
One that won't put
One that won't scare me way too much
Or make my friends freak out

One that won't make me nervous
One that won't shout out "Boo!"
One that will come up to me, one that will say,
"Yeah, I'm the ghost for you"
