The Lyrics

Disclaimer: Downloading music is illegal! (Please don't report me!)
There was a time back in "95
When I was so much dumber
So I would buy, REM's

Lame singles like "Orange Crush":
"Over me, not over me"

I heard,

"Son, why you want to buy that tune??
Swipe a brand new song or a movie that will soon
Be at every theater this June
Cause it's for freeIt's for free."

Then he said,

"Here's some advice for you,
Here's the answer:
There's no reason why that crap
You should buy"

Picked up my brat from school today
"Did you learn anything cause in the world today
You shouldn't play on PC night and day
No MP3s, no MP3s"

He said,

"Dad I'm young but I'm smarter than smart
I've been scheming things, don't take it to heart
For every mother's child is pirating songs
On MP3, on MP3"

"And hey dad
Here's some advice for you,
Here's the answer:
There's no reason why those songs
You must buy"

I said,

"Son do what I've told you,
When and if there ever is a
Reason I should steal
I won't buy"

There are songs that we still have left to pirate
There have been stealings from the beginning of time
There are shortcuts we're not wise enough to see

He said"You looking for a tune? Limewire is free

The hacker hacks and the typer types
As I look into my memory drive
A song plays on in the wonderful form of MP3
And I got it for free

I guess I'm jaded and I guess I'm bad
If you think about it man you know it's kind of sad
Cause I didn't teach my innocent lad
Not to steal MP3s;
He steals them freely

Here's a lesson for you,
It's the answer
There's no reason why those tunes
You should buy
