Track Name: Whoa!
1991
I was sitting watching “Point Break”
Cinema was dark
Then I felt a strange kind of ache
It was all your fault
Something in me was about to wake
Then I saw your face
Made me wanna do a double take

Curtain bangs left me juicy
Keanu, not Gary Busey
Wonder if my parents could see
Puberty was gettin’ messy
Had to keep a secret
It was only in my fantasy
I was just a girl
But you brought the woman out in me

Get it hot
Get it done
Hit da spot
He da one
I feel an explosion coming
Fired like I am a gun
I’m no Sandra Bullock, but I got a good Bang
And I’m thinking of Keanu while I’m doing my thang

CHORUS:
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
Whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
Whoa
(Go Keanu!)

Found you so spectacular
In Bram Stoker’s Dracula
Wanted to be one of da
Naked brides to suck on ya
So your accent wasn’t there
Not like anybody cared
You ain’t winnin’ Oscars
But you’re winnin’ hearts everywhere

“Feeling Minnesota”?
Yeah, I’m feelin’ somethin’ in me rise
You’re “The Devil’s Advocate”
I got the devil in my eyes
So, it was to my surprise
You were Jesus in disguise
Neo from “The Matrix” was my new obsession
Made me cry

Help me, lawd
Help me, please
On my hands
On my knees
Sunglasses and trenches
Oh, Keanu, you are such a tease!
I’m no Trinity
But I swear I’m just as hole-y
I can move a little faster
We don’t have to take this slowly

CHORUS:
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
Whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
Whoa
(Go Keanu!)

BRIDGE:
And you’ll always be my baby even if
Randall Park punches you in the face
Your beauty can’t be erased, no
And I’ll take those sloppy seconds from Ali Wong
In my eyes, you can do no wrong
Come to mama
I can help you move on

CHORUS:
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
Whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
You make go whoa
Whoa
(Go Keanu!)
(Whoa!)

Oh my god!
Track Name: John Wick is My Boyfriend
I can say that I made mistakes
That I wasn’t too smart
That I picked the wrong date
Then
Trouble seemed to come my way
But it wasn’t my plan
It wasn’t my day
When
You decided to give up on us
To abandon us
Betraying my trust
How could this girl ever believe
She was a woman deserving of love?

Time slowed
I was feeling too low
Get back on the horse again
Put on a show
Just when I thought it was over, it wasn’t
Keanu happened to darken my door
He lost a puppy
But then he found me
Who knew I could be
So freaking happy?
So unexpectedly
He could take care of me
Believe in destiny
‘Cause it was meant to be

Good god!
Where the hell have you been all my life, baby?
Good god!
Don’t you know you drive me crazy?

CHORUS:
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend
And I know that this is true love
He’s a cold killer with a big heart
And he’s everything that I dreamed of
‘Cause John Wick is boyfriend
And I probably don’t need to tell you
That if you ever try to mess with me
Well, my boyfriend’s gonna kill you
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend

I love a man
Dressed all in black
Driving a Mustang
No Cadillac
He got dat pretty hair
He got dem tatts
Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat

And when he kisses me
I kiss him back
So hard it hurts
A heart attack
I rip his shirt off
It’s worth the payoff
He got dat body
He got dat six pack

Makes me wet
And I must confess
He’s a sacrament
When he gets undressed
And I feel so blessed
And there’s no more stress
When he gets me hot
With every caress
He’s a born lover
Discover
My weakness
Uncover
He is a miracle
He thinks I’m beautiful
Gives me a fever
And now I’m incurable

Good god!
Where the hell have you been all my life, baby?
Good god!
Don’t you know you drive me crazy?

CHORUS:
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend
And I know that this is true love
He’s a cold killer with a big heart
And he’s everything that I dreamed of
‘Cause John Wick is boyfriend
And I probably don’t need to tell you
That if you ever try to mess with me
Well, my boyfriend’s gonna kill you
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend

BRIDGE:
I’m so glad you left me all alone
Life is better now
Who could have known
That it would be Keanu
To replace you?
Upgraded
Dreams come true
You left me all alone
Life is better now
Who could have known?
Hope you die with your hand on your sad dick
While I’m making love to John Wick

CHORUS:
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend
And I know that this is true love
He’s a cold killer with a big heart
And he’s everything that I dreamed of
‘Cause John Wick is boyfriend
And I probably don’t need to tell you
That if you ever try to mess with me
Well, my boyfriend’s gonna kill you
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend
‘Cause John Wick is my boyfriend
Good god!
Good god!
Good god!
Track Name: Future Face
You caught me off guard
Never expected this
Saw you in Saint Laurent
Started to reminisce
Thinking of past lives
And of what could have been
And now I find myself
Afraid of what I’m letting in

It isn’t like me
To think of you this way
But you’re Keanu
And you will always stay
In my heart, in my mind,
In my thoughts, you will find
Something old awakened in me
That I thought I’d left behind

Then I close my eyes
And you appear to me
Just like a daydream

CHORUS x 2:
I see your face
See your future
Future face
So ambiguous in race
Kissing me in Cyberspace
You got me in your Matrix
Caught me and I’m helpless
Metaphysical bliss
I’m not ready for this

I can’t forget you
Forget the physical
Johnny Mnemonic
You are still beautiful
You got that boyish charm
A smile that I adore
Are you my next adventure?
The one I’m waiting for?

Do you remember
We were Cyberpunks together?
It was you and me against the system
We thought we would live forever
Partly Asian
We don’t raisin
Look the same
‘Cause we’re not agin’
At E3, you were amazin’
Cyberpunk 2077
Breathtakin’!

Then I close my eyes
And you appear to me
Just like a daydream

CHORUS x 2:
I see your face
See your future
Future face
So ambiguous in race
Kissing me in Cyberspace
You got me in your Matrix
Caught me and I’m helpless
Metaphysical bliss
I’m not ready for this

BRIDGE:
I know that I’ll miss you
When you’re gone from here
You’re more than what you seem
I close my eyes
And you appear to me
Just like a daydream


CHORUS x 4:
I see your face
See your future
Future face
So ambiguous in race
Kissing me in Cyberspace
You got me in your Matrix
Caught me and I’m helpless
Metaphysical bliss
I’m not ready for this
Track Name: Crush, Crush
I remember 1991
Cassette tapes of Paula Abdul were so much fun
Dancing to her music videos
Blasting “Straight Up” on my sister’s radio

Then I saw you
You were there on MTV
“Rush, Rush” came over me
You made me so thirsty
And then I prayed to thee

CHORUS:
Crush, crush
Hurry up, Keanu
Come to me
Crush, crush
Won’t you come?
Won’t you come to set me free?
Crush, crush
I could swear
I could swear you’re holding me
Crush, crush
Ooh, won’t you hear my plea?

Taped the video and hit the pause
You were like James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause”
A red jacket and some mid-length hair
Felt so close to you
Felt like you were really there

Inside my room
A sweet face and puppy eyes
Gave me and Paula butterflies
Who cares if her boyfriend dies?
It’s you I fantasize

CHORUS:
Crush, crush
Hurry up, Keanu
Come to me
Crush, crush
Won’t you come?
Won’t you come to set me free?
Crush, crush
I could swear
I could swear you’re holding me
Crush, crush
Ooh, won’t you hear my plea?

BRIDGE:
I could feel my heartbeat slow
Every time I watched you go
Keanu, Keanu
Turning off my MTV
Wanted you so desperately
I know you know it’s meant to be

(dialogue)
Can I ask you something?
-Sure, Keanu, go ahead
Have you ever been in love?
-Meh, not really! Though, looking at you, I’m starting to change my mind.
Let’s make out in an abandoned mansion!
-Yeah, I wonder if I should be sad about that car crash. I mean, he totally died.
That just reminds me that we’re all alone. That’s all.
-Okay, cool. We’re still gonna make out, right?
You bet! Keanu’s gonna make it all better baby!

You’re gonna be
My brand new boyfriend
Though your acting was wooden
In that “Rush, Rush” video
Still wished it would never end

CHORUS x 2:
Crush, crush
Hurry up, Keanu
Come to me
Crush, crush
Won’t you come?
Won’t you come to set me free?
Crush, crush
I could swear
I could swear you’re holding me
Crush, crush
Ooh, won’t you hear my plea?

Crush, crush
Crush, crush
Crush, crush
Crush, crush
Crush, crush
Track Name: Dancing with Keanu
I didn’t know that
You were so serious
When you had told me
You’re in love with someone new
You were a liar
And I was blindsided
How could you burn me
And just break my heart in two?

So lonely
If I only
Could say one thing to you

CHORUS:
It would be goodbye
Goodbye to the best person that you ever knew
Now I am dancing with Keanu
I’m so much stronger
And I won’t waste my time with losers just like you
Now I am dancing with Keanu

How could I not see
You were so selfish?
And you felt insecure
When standing next to me?
So you betrayed me
Do you feel like a man now?
I know I’m twice the woman she could ever be

So lonely
If I only
Could say one thing to you

CHORUS:
It would be goodbye
Goodbye to the best person that you ever knew
Now I am dancing with Keanu
I’m so much stronger
And I won’t waste my time with losers just like you
Now I am dancing with Keanu

BRIDGE:
You cut deep
Now I can’t sleep
How will I make it through?
So lonely
If I only
Could say one last thing to you

(You know what? You can f*** off, ass****!)

CHORUS:
It would be goodbye
Goodbye to the best person that you ever knew
Now I am dancing with Keanu
I’m so much stronger
And I won’t waste my time with losers just like you
Now I am dancing with Keanu
Now I am dancing with Keanu
Now I am dancing with Keanu
Now I am dancing with Keanu

Pull up a chair
He’s listening
Tears for Keanu
