The Lyrics

I made this song in response to the growing number of irate gamers who hate Florida attorney Jack Thompson. Sorry for those I offended in this song, but I think people should understand more about games before they say anything...
[verse 1]
I'm playing GTA
I didn't grow insane
Pass the Nintendo DS, please
Came from ol' Florida
He says he's sick at us
It seems like he argued everyday

I know kids misbehave
But he links that to games
To the point, he insulted my friends
And though they sometimes hurt
He dissed us and cursed
We were making things work,
But I think he should take it slow

[chorus]
You're a jingoistic idiot
You just want to earn some dough
Thompson, you're a crazy idiot
Maybe you should take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
This time we'll take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
This time we'll take it slow

[verse 2]
Vice City's fictional,
No Shirley Temple musical
I gave you some flowers one sweet day,
Ohh, but you rejected them
Flamed us and slapped again
You're all but a show-off anyway

We tried to be calm
We asked but you yelled
We feel like we're just nuked away
That's too much harassment,
Let's bury the hatchet
Though it's just a fantasy, you do not want those games

[chorus]
You're a jingoistic idiot
You just want to earn some dough
Thompson, you're a crazy idiot
Maybe you should take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
This time we'll take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
This time we'll take it slow

[bridge]
We gamers live and learn
Some hope you'll crash and burn
We're playing games, you went insane,
Don't like you a lot
For just a moment, sir,
Silence is my advice,
Carl Johnson knows,
Vercetti knows,
Will you please shut up...

[repeat chorus 3x]

There's a really good article about this guy at www.pointlesswasteoftime.com/games/censorship.html that's called "Five Reasons Why Jack Thompson Is Right (And Five Why He's Not)" that makes a pretty good read on this subject.

Oh, yeah, Jack's really a nuisance; he makes problems like school shooting incidents even worse. It goes to show that Thompson's just there to show off and make money...morons! Anyway thanks for the comments...
