Preliminary Merpire: Wannabe

Yep. It's time for another Preliminary Merpire single. And it's to be sung to the tune of THIS:



I've got the giggles already. Hopefully you're laughing too and not searching for a toothbrush to scrub your eyeballs with.

Anyway, here are the lyrics, merpire-style:

Yo, I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I really really
really wanna supernatural boy.

If you want my lovin, better be a stud,
Better beat up villains and smash them into mud,
Now don't go wasting my precious time,
If you are a cyborg we could be just fine

I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I really really
really wanna supernatural boy.

If you wanna be my boyfriend, you gotta have an ochre fin,
Pointy teeth that I can see every time you grin,
If you wanna be my boyfriend, you need super skills,
Normal is too boring; I want some major thrills.
What you think about that? Now you know how I feel,
Say you’re a werewolf? Are you for real?
I won't be hasty; I'll give you a try
If you try to eat me then I'll say goodbye.

Yo I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I really really
really wanna supernatural boy.

If you wanna be my boyfriend, you gotta have an ochre fin,
Pointy teeth that I can see every time you grin,
If you wanna be my boyfriend, you need super skills,
Normal is too boring; I want some major thrills.
So here's a story from A to Z, you wanna get with me
you gotta listen carefully,
You got big scary claws or fangs in your jaws,
you got super speed, you are the guy I need
hope you won’t make me plead, you are just my breed,
and as for me I’ll bleed,
That’s the way it is, this whole human biz.
That’s the way it is, this whole human biz.

If you wanna be my boyfriend, you gotta have an ochre fin,
Pointy teeth that I can see every time you grin,
If you wanna be my boyfriend, you need super skills,
Normal is too boring; I want some major thrills.
If you wanna be my boyfriend, you gotta, you gotta, you gotta,
you gotta, you gotta, fly, fly, fly, fly
Fly up in the air and show me all your flair.
Fly up in the air and show me all your flair.
Fly up in the air my supernatural boy.
If you wanna be my boyfriend.

It's kind of embarrassing how many times I've gone through and performed this in my office.

Don't forget the Zom-Com contest. We've got some freaking hilarious entries so far.

Fortunately I kinda like the original version of that song, so now I can sing the merpire version (which is better anyway). Also fortunately, I'm off work today so I won't frighten my coworkers.

That was freakin' funny. Unfortunately I need to take a blowtorch to the parts of my brain that it is ingrained in.

I'm going to be singing this to myself all day :) And I think it'd be hilarious to get the guys to do this video. I already know 3 that would totally do it. :D

Mariah Irvin said...

The sad thing is I didn't have to even listen to the music video.

I'm totally memorizing this song and singing it everywhere!

Angela said...

I think we need a vid of you singing this baby!

Big Plain V said...

That video was hysterical. Too bad they made it before the world learned the improved lyrics.

i see a book in the making - The Merpires - they'll drown you or bit you - which ever you prefer.

I saw a copy of "Selfish Mr. Mermaid" at the book store. I'm tempted to peak inside ; )

Natalie said...

Teehee, I need a supernatural boy. They're way better. And apparently they're all brooders. Mmm, brooders...

Kelly said...

Those silly teenage boys!
Great parody, Carrie. You need to write more, record them and be the female Weird Al Yankovich!
