惠妮官網經典MV倒數-"It's Not Right But It's Okay"


惠媽官網新一波經典MV倒數-"It's Not Right But It's Okay"

The sixth video in the countdown is the smash hit "It's Not Right But It's Okay", off Whitney's fourth studio album My Love Is Your Love. The video features her in a sleek leather gown, black collar and sexy maroon lipstick confidently throwing off a cheating lover. Whitney not only looks great, she feels great: her spirit and resilience draws us in to her every move. "It's Not Right But It's Okay" was 1 of 3 singles off My Love Is Your Love to top Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart and earned Whitney her sixth Grammy award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 2000. A song about strength and survival, "It's Not Right But It's Okay" is truly a Whitney Houston classic.

And the best thing about "It' Not Right But It's Okay" is that it's a twofer...the remix is just as amazing! Featured off Whitney's 2000 Greatest Hits Collection, this remix really knows how to get a party started. Check out the video here!

Lyrics:

Friday night you and your boys went out to eat
Then they hung out,but you came home around three
If six of ya'll went out then four of you were really cheap
'Cause only two of you had dinner
I found your credit card receipt

Chorus:

It's not right but it's okay
I'm gonna make it anyway
Pack your bags up and leave
Don't you dare come running back to me
It's not right but it's okay
I'm gonna make it anyway
Close the door behind you
Leave your key
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

I'm packing bags so you can leave town for a week
The phone rings then you look at me (why'd you turn and look at me)
Said it was one of your friends
Down on 54th street boy
So why did 213 show up on your caller ID
I've been through all this before
So how could you think
That I would stand around and take some more
Things are gonna change
Cause I won't be a fool anymore
That's why you have to leave
So don't turn around to see my face
There's no more tears left here for you to see

Was it really worth you going out like that - tell me
See I'm moving on and I refuse to turn back
See all of this time I thought I had somebody down for Whitney
It turns out you were making a fool of me

Chorus

It's not right but it's okay - [It's not right - so okay baby]
I'm gonna make it anyway [I can pay my own rent]
Pack your bags up and leave [pay my light bill - take care of my babies]
Don't you dare come running back to me
It's not right but it's okay
I'm gonna make it anyway [get up and leave]
Close the door behind you
Leave your key
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

It's not right but it's okay [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
I'm gonna make it anyway [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
Pack your bags up and leave [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
Don't you dare come running back to me
It's not right but it's okay [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
I'm gonna make it anyway [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
Close the door behind you [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
Leave your key
I'd rather be alone than unhappy [there's no more tears left here for you to see]

It's Not Right But It's Okay此曲收錄於惠媽的第四張錄音室大碟My Love Is Your Love (1998)之中,當年在單曲榜最高名次是第四名,在舞曲榜則是拿下冠軍寶座。

1998年之後的巡迴演唱會或是頒獎典禮演出,惠媽幾乎都會演唱此單曲。2007-2008年的4場海外演出,這單曲也常被拿來做開場序幕曲(但那時仍在修生養息的惠媽,4場演出中的表現,常叫惠妮迷們搖頭歎息...)。今年二月在Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy Party 2009的表演節目裡,惠媽的表演著實讓人大吃一驚!
