The Lyrics

I heard it on the PC back in '99
Clicking away, downloading right to my hard drive
In my own home, there was nothing they could do (oh-a oh)

They filed lawsuits at your university
Systems Administrative blocked port 63
Because I utilized the bandwidth on the T (oh-a oh)
I bet your parents (oh-a oh) never used Winamp

Mp3 killed the media star
Mp3 killed the media star

Napster came and spread you far (oh-a-a-a oh)

Now we hang out at a forclosed record store
We see the shelves that used to hold CDs and more
And you remember the industry would go, (oh-a oh)
"You can't hear music (oh-a oh) unless you pay us"

Mp3 killed the media star
Mp3 killed the media star

In my rio and on Drive C:
On free websites and FTPs
(Oh-a-aho oh, oh-a-aho oh)

(Break)

Mp3 killed the media star
Mp3 killed the media star

In my rio and on Drive C:
On free websites and FTPs
Napster came and spread you far
Put the blame on CD-R
(You are a media star)
(You are a media star)

Mp3 killed the media star (to fade)
(You are a media star)
