The Lyrics

did you know if olivia newton john married wayne newton, divorced him and remarried elton john she'd be.....wait for it.... Olivia Newton-John Newton John?
Olivia:

I need heels,
the fashion's dyin
and my shoes look so old
and the boots that you're supplyin'
you're just not tryin!

you better stepup
'cause I need a man
and my heart is set on shoes
better step up
be a sugar dad
pair of boots, no maybe two
nothing left
no more cash is left for you

they're the ones that I want
the ones that I want
ooh ooh honey
the ones that I want
ooh ooh honey
the ones that I want
oo oo ooh
the ones I need
oh yes indeed

if you feel they're out of fashion,
listen boy, what I say,
use the card, rate protection
pay today....

John:

I better shape up
or you'll leave your man
who can't keep you satisfied
I better pay up
gotta buy new shoes
proven love from what I buy
and I'm sure down deep inside



they're the ones that I want
the ones that I want
ooh ooh honey
the ones that I want
ooh ooh honey
the ones that I want
oo oo ooh
the ones I need
oh yes indeed

Sorry dude, but there are issues here. John does the frst lines of the song. Olivia starts off the "You Better Shape up line... And you have a lot of places where the lyics are the same as the original.

I must agree. The first part does start with John. And.. the chorus... mostly ALL stolen.
