The Lyrics

I don't want to spoil the riot so I'll flee
I would hate the establishment to see
The TV in my hands
And five new wedding bands
If they turn up while I'm here they’ll arrest me

I've broke a lock or two back in my day
When they fought for civil rights and equal pay
Free stereos were nice
That’s until found by Vice
Asked if I'll plead guilty, I answered “nay”.

It’s tempting to find a bass
I still want one
To play Rock Band at my place
God that game’s fun

I don't want to spoil the riot so I'll go
I don’t want the police district to show
Their presence at my door
So I will steal no more
Well maybe some more golf clubs, they’ll never know

Seems tonight it’s fire hose
I won’t get wet
A new Wave System from Bose?
I’ll swipe that yet

A curfew’s set for 2:00 and I don't care
Still hauling a DeskJet back into my lair
I wonder what it’s for
More gay rights? Or the poor?
Got free stuff regardless that’s only fair

(Amiright Idol) I don't think anyone has ever done "riot looting" as a parody topic before...lord knows it could have been any number of times here in America...This was funny, and made a pointed bit of commentary.

(AmIRight Idol) I don't know how on an artist that is arguably the most popular group in the history of music, so many entrants managed to pick songs I can't get backing tracks to easily. . .still good job. . .It was funny, and paced well.

"I wonder what it’s for/More gay rights? Or the poor?" was an interesting couplet. Fun stuff, Wolvie, though the third "verse" seemed a bit out of place compared to the rest of your lyrics. 5s
