The Lyrics

Stephen Stills has written a rather sizeable number of quality songs over his many years in music. One day while watching a Football game on TV I noticed that the music from Stills classic "For What It's Worth" had been morphed into a Miller Beer ad.
There's nothing happening here
Wouldn't you like an ice-cold beer
Miller Beer tastes so fine
I drink it all of the time

You better stop, hey,
Drink that beer
Nobody cares what's happening here

Once my words had some weight
Now I say "Miller Tastes Great"
All my new songs are just crap
Maybe I'll try doing rap

You better stop, hey
Drink that beer
Nobody cares what's happening here

Drank beer to cool off from the heat
Got lots of snack chips to eat
Watchin' sports and the betting line
Hope the spread goes right for our side

I just can't stop, hey
gotta drink that beer
don't give a damn what's happening here

Corporate ad dollars do speak
Free cash that I can now reap
It helps when you have no more hits
All my new stuff is the pits.

You better stop, hey
Drink that beer
Nobody cares what's happening here
Stop, hey drink that beer
Nobody cares what's happening
You better stop, hey
Drink that beer
Can't write a song you'd want to hear.

I LOVED this parody. I loved the song when it came out, and the sentiment which it expressed; the use of "For What It's Worth" OFFENDED me when used to sell beer!!! This parody expresses my outrage (and it's funny, to boot). Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
