The Lyrics

The seedy side of journalism...
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see?

You run a paper
No small one but nothin' major
Big enough to get asked favours
To take a story back, it makes me wince
That you're thinkin' maybe
We should do it, don't be crazy
Don't pay me to be so shady
I don't agree that we should pull this bit

It's the truth (truth, oh-oh-oh), can't just be denied (can't be denied)
It's the truth (truth, oh-oh-oh), should stay in the headlines, oh-oh

We should keep that piece, no redaction, trust me
Will come off poorly, we'll look the fool, trust me
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see? Hate redactions, trust me
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see (yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah)?
We should leave it be, no redaction, trust me
Will come off badly, rep will be screwed, trust me
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see? Hate redactions, trust me
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see?

If we'd lied, yeah, sure, pull it (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Take back unintended bullshit (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-eah, yeah)
But this guy was creepy
So we should try and let the world know, right (oh-oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh)
Kind of a basic
Thing to do, must it be stated?
When bribes are created
All the trust we've tried to build will die, oh-ooh-whoa-oh

Print the truth (truth, oh-oh-oh) about this rude guy (such a rude guy)
Print the truth (truth, oh-oh-oh) 'bout how he's made of slime

It's a strong hit-piece, no redaction, trust me
We'll just look shady and a right tool, trust me
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see? Hate redactions, trust me
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see (yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah)?
Don't edit it, please, no redaction, trust me (yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah)
Will look so iffy, like we lick boots, trust me (oh-oh)
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see? Hate redactions, trust me
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see?

If we go and cut it all
We might as well cut our balls
Whoa-ooh-ooh-whoa-ooh-ooh-whoa-oh
Prove we lack the need

Don't want to look weak, no redaction, trust me
Should show how this creep (huge douche) is a huge douche (huge douche), trust me
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see (no-one)? Hate redactions, trust me (no-one)
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see (yeah-eah-eah-ee-yeah-ee)?
Move it from page 3 (double-down on the call-out of creeps), no redaction, trust me
Make a point that we (print the truth) won't bow to tools, trust me (print the truth daily)
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see? Hate redactions, trust me (we're not cowards, are we?)
No-one, no-one, no-one, no-one gets to see (I'm sayin' "No", I say "Hell no")?

This would honestly be the one time I would be okay with a delayed Amiright update, just for the mild irony of a parody about fighting against needless redactions getting held back.
