The Lyrics

What if Rod Stewart wasn't supposed to be "the new boy" behind the same great classics (not including his own, though) of his time? Hold on a minute! This one makes fun of Rod's cover-song business, isn't it?
Once in a while, maybe you should feel the urge
To break some sort of copyright law
By re-recording songs of other artists
Like Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, as well as Madonna

But deep in your heart, you know the guilt might drive you mad
All the blame could leave some serious scars
Since you start out stealing songs without letting artists know
And you were trying to own them, now I thought you've gone too far

So Rod, don't steal their songs
The right musicians are who they belong
Don't matter if those songs are your favorites
Oh Rod, don't steal their songs

Oh, you don't wanna mess with the greatest songs we know
They'll sue you if you try to cover them
Without any responsibility toward original musicians
They'll treat you like evil idiots that'll easily lose freedom

So Rod, don't steal their songs
Don't go pirating music for too long
Don't care if any of these songs are your favorites
Oh Rod, don't steal their songs

Don't wanna be one of these bad artists just like you
If you re-record "Vincent", what'll Don McLean must do?
He might bust your head with a German suplex too
Just ask permission from artists first, it's true

Rod, don't steal their songs (don't do it, no, no)
Even Bon Jovi knows it's wrong (why don't you ask him)
Those songs aren't really yours, they think you'd just stole 'em (you really did)
Oh Rod, don't steal their songs

Rod, don't steal their songs (Oh please, don't you do it)
People think you're much as stubborn as Donkey Kong (remember Donkey)
Better ask those guys first (right now) because you cover them
But Rod, don't steal their songs

Rod, don't steal their songs (No, no, no, no, no, no)
The FBI have gone too strong (you won't deserve it)
Don't care if other people's songs are your favorites (you mean rip-off)
Rod, just don't steal their songs

Good idea, poorly executed. In fact, I'd like to have YOU pooly executed! [LOL :) ] I can't B-E-L-I-E-V-E how poor your grammar is! 'What'll Don McLean must do?" "The right musicians who they belong?" McLean could have started by giving TSB a whack in side of head.

Just for your information Jon S., TSB is autistic, as mentioned to me by Dylan Baranski.
JP - July 08, 2007 - Report this comment
Is that a fact that TSB is autistic? Well, if that's true, then he does pretty good considering his disability.

One of your better ones, TSB (even if, legally speaking, cover songs are not punishable by law...if only crummy performances were!)
