The Lyrics

A hate song, but this time not a cheap shot at a band/artist I don't like. But yeah, the Spice Girls do suck. The pacing may be a little off (especially the pseudo-rap bit), but I had no intention to learn the song off by heart. I'm also hoping to create a sketch comedy show, where this video and song will be parodied.
Yo, I'll tell what I want, what I really, really, want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I'll tell you want I want, what I really, really want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave)
I wanna really really really wanna you to go away

One time I liked you, but it didn’t last
If you wanna sleep with me, you can kiss my ass
Don’t beg forgiveness, you’re wasting time
If you’re thinking otherwise, you’re out your mind

I'll tell you want I want, what I really, really want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave)
I wanna really really really wanna you to go away

You might wanna be my lover, but I want you to go away (want you to go away)
Looked at some stuff online, think I might be gay
I don’t wanna be your lover, find somebody else (find someone else)
Didn’t care the first time, I’d rather shoot myself

I try to tell you all that, but I’m not left alone
You left a million texts on my cell phone (on my cell phone)
I’ve asked you nicely, I’ve threatened death
Next time you say “love you” will be your last breath

Yo, I'll tell what I want, what I really, really, want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave), I wanna (leave)
I wanna really really really wanna you to go away

You might wanna be my lover, I wish the tables were turned (wish the tables were turned)
Good thing times are modern or you could be burned
I don’t wanna be your lover, you are short in brains (you’re short in brains)
Please get over this breakup, it’s driving me insane

So it’s obvious you won’t leave me be
So here’s advice from me, you’d better listen carefully
I want you to go away, have no desire for you to stay
I think, “Gee, you like me, I hope you’re simply teasing me,”
But it’s plain to see you are way crazy
Advice from me? You see…

Get out of my life, and look for someone else
Get out of my life, and look for someone else

You might wanna be my lover, the feeling’s not mutual (feeling’s not mutual)
If you weren’t a woman, I’d kick you in the balls
I don’t wanna be your lover, you should just move on (come on, move on)
Can’t believe I kept up with this retarded song

You might wanna be my lover
You gotta, you gotta, you gotta, you gotta, you gotta
(Go, go, go, go) Please get out of my life
Get out of my life, and look for someone else
Get out of my life, and look for someone else

Get out of my life, and look for someone else
Get out of my life, please go away

I don’t wanna be your lover

Very good. Pacing might be a touch off, the 'singing''s too fast-paced for me to tell. Funny stuff anyway, good work bruvva

I like this one! Harsh, but funny. I was also able to pace your song. I also hope to see this sketch comedy show you mentioned, if you decide to work on it. I give you props, Ned! (shows 2 thumbs up). 5's all the way!!

Thanks Christie! I probably wouldn't be in that particular sketch, though. I'd volunteer to parody Nirvana or Metallica, though.

Also, I'd parody Wannabe, but I think I could use different lyrics - commenting more on the band, song and video - kind of like some of the Fast Forward sketches.

I just thought of a really good chorus! You might wanna be my lover, but maybe we should just be friends
No point trying to fix it, our love is at an end
I don't wanna be your lover, I think that you should go
Asked a million times and the answer's always no
Oops!
