So we could live like
Whitney and Bobby
John is implying that Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown are well paid.
Mind you, this song was dropped back in 2004 when Whitney and Bobby were still together, also this was during the Television reality series, Being Bobby Brown, came out staring both Bobby and Whitney. So during this time, Whitney and Bobby were very well paid.
