The Lyrics

This one was inspired by the recent furore surrounding News International and their phone-hacking, police-bribing etc. shenanigans. It's still rumbling on at the moment, and the allegations and list of victims shows no sign of running out. You can hear the OS here.

Nobody thought we did it
’Til we were under arrest
Bribing, corrupting, hacking cellphones too
Bet you never guessed

We were just shameless, and so if you’re famous
Don’t need to ask you for your views
‘Cause we know what you’re up to
Our spies have bugged you
See your secrets making front page news!

And nobody told the boss-man
Though everyone said someone did
Nobody’s knowing anything at all
We all ran away and hid

Is Murdoch just oafish
And dumb as a goldfish
Or does he just lie for his own cause?
How did he appease them?
Just bribed the policemen
That’s the way to really use the force!

Now nobody trusts the papers
Not that they did anyway
Loathed by the public, hell, that’s what we do
Snooping on you, making gossip pay!
Why’d you preach and taunt?
Gave you what you want
Cur…i…os…ity…
Ver…sus… privacy
Rant, rave and accuse
You’ll still buy the news
