The Lyrics

New York Subways in 2005 and Studio 54 in 1985 -- the parallels are interesting: The hottest, hippest craze comes in a white package small enough to fit into a pocket or purse, but loaded with power. Take one hit, and in seconds, you're able to completely tune out while having the illusion that you're really tuning in. The best stuff is pricey, but getting more affordable all the time, and pretty soon it's everywhere. And little Georgie Bush is a huge fan...
For the whine of Britney, I've got a jones,
(iPod cocaine, iPod cocaine)
Gotta hear some Whitney in croakin' tones,
(iPod cocaine, iPod cocaine)
Always carry it with me like P.Diddy does,
Cause when I do... I get that buzz

I need my music my way:
The 'endless-tune-supply' way,
Tune in to crap while life just passes by...

I got Eminem in my kilobytes
(That's not a song, that's not a song)
I got 50 Cent, and he raps all night
(That's not a song, that's not a song)
And I crank up the volume and I play it loud
Es-pec-ial-ly... when I'm in crowds

Groovin to music my way:
The 'music is my high' way;
Tune in to crap while life just passes by...

Get my tunes online for free...

I got Jewel, Avril and Alicia Keys
(iPod's are neat, iPods are neat)
And I got those children of Destiny
(iPod's are sweet, iPods are sweet)
And of course I will blare it, as I like to do --
Tuning in to those guys,
(and not to you)

My tunes are bland and blase,
Boring, in that bourgeois way;
Tune in to crap while life just passes by...

I need my music my way:
The 'music is my high' way;
Tune in to crap while life just...
passes by...
