The Lyrics

The R.I.A.A. goes after on-line music downloaders by snooping around the Internet underground and sueing them
(Sung by MP3 downloaders:)
Here's the story... sad, but true...
It's about the world that we once knew:
Music we loved, shared underground.
MP3's freely passed around.

(Refrain by RIAA lawyers:)
Pay! Pay! Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay... mo-o-o-re...

Pay! Pay! Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay... mo-o-o-re...

(MP3 downloaders:)
R.I.A.A. thought they were really smart.
The world of music's changed; they want no part.
Who listens to them, with their attitude?
To get their way, they want the underground sued.

We once shared tips and files in cyberspace;
So much, without care, 'round the world with no trace.
The music companies tried to intrude.
To get their way, they'd want the underground sued.

(RIAA lawyers:)
Pay! Pay! Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay... mo-o-o-re...

(MP3 downloaders:)
Our files used to travel around.
We loved to collect what we'd found.
The music companies got wise.
We're found out by music spies.

Hide tomorrow, 'cause the story is they'll fry their foes.
Money they love, with their law imposed..
Defending rules are their thuggish crew for pay.
Want their way, they'd want the underground sued.

(RIAA lawyers:)
Pay! Pay! Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay... mo-o-o-re...

(MP3 downloaders:)
Our files used to travel around.
We loved to collect what we'd found.
The music companies got wise.
We're found out by music spies.

Hide tomorrow, 'cause the story is they'll fry their foes.
Money they love, and they love to pose.
Defending rules are their thuggish crew for pay.
Want their way, they'd want the underground sued.

(RIAA lawyers:)
Pay! Pay! Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay, pay!
Damned bootleggers gotta pay... mo-o-o-re...
