The Lyrics


Oh, my name is John Fogerty
And I swear this happened to me
I was surfing on the world-wide web
When I should have been asleep in bed
What I saw made me hit the floor
As my life flashed by like never before

Oh,I saw it on the internet
Downloads for free and all you can get
My songs you can get on something called torrent
Cause I saw it on the internet
There goes my money

It wasn’t supposed to be this way
People download and I don’t get paid
Losing my royalties left and right
I have a hard time sleeping at night
Takes me back into the past
When I dealt with a guy named Zaentz

Oh, I saw it on the internet
Downloads for free and all you can get
My songs you can get on something called torrent
Cause I saw it on the internet
There goes my money

People say John, don’t get upset
Everyone is in the same boat I guess
Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill
How I wish I never left vinyl
But with this modern technology
It has taken my money away from me

Oh, I saw it on the internet
Downloads for free and all you can get
My songs you can get on something called torrent
Cause I saw it on the internet
There goes my money

Didn't know they did a cover of this. Funny, although all these major artists complaining about this already have enough money anyway. But well done

Would this parody be a "Creeden's Clearwater Revival"? (Very enjoyable) ;D
Tommy Turtle - March 11, 2010 - Report this comment
The pacing is way, way off (none of the first verse scans to TOS, and the majority of the rest don't, either). Very clever idea; just needs better technical execution. Point is well made. 243, and welcome to AIR!
