about

This is a sequel to "Wannabe" by The Spice Girls.
www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100#/charts/hot-100?chartDate=1997-02-22

The idea is kind of like someone who dates a spice girl
and she cheats on him and can't get over her Spice Girl life. So he kind of goes to extremes. One reading is he kills her and puts her in the trunk. I referenced a lot fo the original song lyrics for the references like her thinking she's 'hot' is from 'Spice' kind of dumb but you get the idea. It's about the wannabe idea of being wild with your friends not being conducive to settling down later.

lyrics

Tell me what you want
What you really really want
And I'll tell you want I want what I really really want
I want you
I want you
Oh here is a story from zee to A
You wanna break up with me, then just walk away
But first let me say what I wanted us to be before you go

Wannabe like a family
But the love in your heart I never got to see
And I know you thought that you were so hot
But you wanna know the truth
Now, nothings all you got

If you wanna stay with me leave all those false friends
Your big city life is over
And its time to make amends
Let those bright lights roll behind you
And leave those other men
Just let me be your lover
Let forever live again

I wannabe like a family
But the love in your heart I never got to see
And I know you thought you thought were so hot
But you wanna know the truth
Now, nothings all you got

You wanna know how I feel, Well I think that you’re a fake
I only stayed with you for our babies sake
Then I done gone found out
That it's someone elses child
And it was too late to calm you down coz you're running wild

I wannabe like a family
But the love in your heart I never got to see
Even though you thought you were so darn hot
You wanna know the truth
Now, nothings all you got

One day I'm comin' round your house
And I'll slam your body down
I'll put you in the trunk
And drive you all around
You‘ll never ever be
Nothing without me
If only you had been
What I wanted you to be!

Still I wannabe like a family
But the love in your heart I never got to see
Even though you thought you were so hot
You wanna know the truth
Now, nothings all you got

I wanna be…3…with my baby, with you and me
