The Lyrics

Oh how wrong can it be?
Oh to rip the song
Was my very first mistake
How was I to know
It's so quick to make and share an mp3?
Oh piracy look at me now
Piracy you got me somehow
They came without warning
And took my hard drive
Piracy you led me wrong
You couldn't lose, I had to fail
You had some spyware on my tail

How how how all my piracy
I was too cheap a fan to buy CDs online
Now I'm here in jail for my own piracy

Oh how long can it be?
When waiting from the start
Time is far too short
To wait around for years
If only they could see
Just what it does to me
Oh piracy you locked me up
Piracy you shut my fun down
You caused me sorrow, you are to blame
Piracy will I be let go?
Got ahold of my obsessive mind
Turned me into the pirate kind

How how how all my piracy
I was too cheap a fan to buy CDs online
Now I'm here in jail for my own piracy
But now it matters not
If I download or buy
'Cause I'm here in jail for my own piracy

Excellent stuff: it's not a song I'd have chosen to parody (one of those lesser-known Queen songs you only ever listen to on the album), but a great job.

I liked it too. Good closet classic song.
