The Lyrics

Beautiful Woman...Great Voice...Bad Choices
I loved Whitney, but somebody had to write this...
I Wanna Crank With Somebody

[cue Yamaha dx7]

Clive calls…he’s telling me
That we’ve just hit number one
Now the pressure is building-up
And my blues have just begun

I've played it straight…but I know
That it’s time to lighten up…and so…
I’m out on the town…with Bobby Brown

Oh, I wanna crank with somebody
I wanna pop some pills with somebody
Yeah I wanna snort with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Oh, I wanna booze with somebody
I wanna shoot a beer with somebody
Yeah I wanna drink with somebody
With somebody who loves me

I've lost some weight and lost some hair and…
Lost some teeth as well…
I’ve lost some cash and I’ve lost some friends
And…my life’s a living hell…

I need a man who knows a guy
Who’ll supply the stuff that will get me high
And…when the night falls
I’ll cop 3 8-balls…

Oh, I wanna tweak with somebody
I wanna do some crack with somebody
Yeah I wanna smoke with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Oh, I wanna fly with somebody
I wanna do a line with somebody
Yeah, I wanna nod with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Somebody oh, somebody oh
Somebody who loves me, yeah
Somebody oh, somebody oh
Enabling each day oh

I need a man who needs a chick
Who’s esteem is low but her wallet’s thick…
A sweet handsome beau…who’ll score me some blow…

Oh, I wanna shoot with somebody
I wanna roll a joint with somebody
Yeah I wanna binge with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Oh, I wanna drug with somebody
I wanna hit the pipe with somebody
Yeah I wanna dose with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Whoo, hoo, CRANK…c’mon Bobby…wee…hee…hee
Oh yeah…wee…hee…hee

Don’tcha wanna play…with me Bobby?
Don’tcha wanna help…my career?
Hey…Are you looking out for me Bobby?
You’re somebody who loves me?

Didn’t Michael use ?
Didn’t Elvis use ?
Didn’t Jimmy use ?

Didn’t Ledger use ?
Didn’t Janis use ?
Didn’t Amy use ?

Didn’t Anna use ?
Didn’t River use ?
Didn’t Farley use ?

Where’s somebody who loves me? …

IT"S ABOUT TIME you wrote something!!! Geeze! Invisible Boy, What do you have a life or something?! Too bad it takes the life of a fantastic R&B singer to get you back writing parodies but I'm glad to see you back here!

I guess that bodyguard thing didn't really work out...

Incredibly poor taste- the Piers Morgan of parody writing here.
Glen S - February 16, 2012 - Report this comment
I think you lose some points for taste, but it is very well written. I think given how much attention has been paid to her positive contributions to music and her great voice, it is fair to not forget her flaws too. Also, good to see you back around IB. I still gotta get up Northeast and check out your neck of the woods

This parody is the perfect example of the fine line between poor taste and acknowledging the elephant in the room. Whitney, by abusing alcahol and drugs, chose to dance with the devil. That's a tango few people survive. Great job IB. 555

I don't know about poor taste. Yes, addiction is tragic, but it's a parody website, yo. This humorous treatment is in far better taste than all of the self-righteous judgmentalism flying around about her addiction.

A fitting parody that was gonna be done eventually.....Got it off your chest,so you can breathe more easily now ..Some people can be a little touchy at times.....I see you still got the groove............nice
