The Lyrics

When this song comes out
At the record store
And the price is kinda high
It doesn't look that good
At least not good enough to buy
Things just got much better
And we're selling lots more CDs
Cause one song's title
Surely does mislead

Rip-off!
Rip-off!
It's what we do!
Metal--Lica
Will never know!
Rip-off!
Rip-off!
It's what we do!
Metal--Lica
Will never know!

Sad but true,
Is the name of this song
But if this song is the cover then we sure did it wrong
This title's got you thinkin'
And you're gonna be pissed
You think that there's an awesome cover song on the disc
All the punkers will cry,
And the metalheads mourn,
The titles that we think of are Metallica's songs
That doesn't make them better
And it sure as hell ain't right
I'm just too tired to think
And I'm not very bright

Rip-off!
Rip-off!
It's what we do!
Metal--Lica
Will never know!
Rip-off!
Rip-off!
It's what we do!
Metal--Lica
Will never know!

In a song, we take a riff
Add drumming, on a can
Now we're looping all the parts
And singing... like kinda crap
We write one song
We write another
We go to Cali
Down to Epitaph
Now it's time to make
Our new CD
I go down
to Brett Gurewitz
Yeah, and now we're on Hellcat...
What's Harman Street?
Ohh, Harman street, Harman street, Harman street?
Yeah, I'm just repeating
The same damn thing, about a thousand times, yeah
And it's always just as bad as the first time

As time goes on,
I shout louder again
Could have had a chance
Now if Tim sung instead
Seems like yesterday,
Matt Freeman was on bass
But he's nothing that,
Computers can't replace
Or if Brett instead
Wish he'd start drumming again
At least we got a start,
But we're not till the end
If I could make a change
I'd bring Lars back too
So I don't rip off songs
Like Sad but True

Rip-off!
Rip-off!
It's what we do!
Metal--Lica
Will never know!
Rip-off!
Rip-off!
It's what we do!
Metal--Lica
Will never know!
