The Lyrics

This is about the caring journalists from News of the World who had your privacy at heart.
DKTOS? The Right Thing to Do- Carly Simon.
There’s software you can use on cell phones today
Tappin’ anyone’s cachet
I read your fouls, and the words a buffet
Buggin’ you’s the right thing to do
Buggin’ you’s the right thing

I’ll show you lad, this rad trick from Rudy’s News Corps
I’ll show you and you’ll hack like crazy
Tap those important chats, you’ll find their lives are not secure
Buggin’ them’s the right thing to do
Buggin’ them’s the right thing

And the news for me, sends a smile
Rights of people, blown right out the door
Cellular serves a treasure to me
I’m all a quiver, brings me reams of headlines,
Stories pour

Hacking all your plans, prints a page of howlers
For I’m readin’ all your secret wrongs
How I love this technique, you care to respond?
Buggin’ you’s the right thing to do
Buggin’ you’s the right thing

Something we can always do, we’ll take you away from you
Yes, we’ll hack your phone and we’ll hack your mail
Stories grown from ten thousand texts displayed
We’ll print you tomorrow, cos’ we bugged you today
It’s the thug way
It's your life we'll display.

Minor rewrite. Last lines should read:

We’ll print you tomorrow, cos’ we bugged you today
It's the news game
It’s your life on a page.
