The Lyrics

A free audio sample of the original song "Listen To The Music" can be found on the page located at the following URL:
Doobie Brother's sellin'
Day by day
Gettin' old and kinda used
Some are sappy
Some are bad
Oh, we gotta make the people pay

What our records need
Is a way to sell that's sly
It ain't so hard to do if you know how
Stick it in the lyrics
Ram it on through
All for dollars, only reason why!

Listen to the music
Pay us for the music
Buy more o'the music
All the time

Well I know
You know better
Everything we say
In our music seems to only say:
"Make us happy - send us cash - oh, we're gonna cash our blues away"

And if we're soundin' good to you
And you're feelin' like a dweeb
There ain't nothin' stoppin' you today
Buyin' more
Of our slime
Oh, sucker, send your bucks our way

Listen to the music
Pay us for the music
Buy more o'the music
All the time

Like ol' David Crosby's liver
Cirrhosis hassled that poor guy
Now our greed is getting bigger
List'nin' for the ka-ching sound
Of our records as you buy

Listen to the music
Pay us for the music
Buy more o'the music
On your dime
New song Rick D and I wrote together because of this site.

Yeah, Johnnie, I saw all of them this morning and voted on your others, but the site has been messed up today. (And now, I can't post or vote )I took this one to be more of a groups' plea not to illegaly download. My original comment was griping about people that beg for anything as in "Hey listen! Ya gotta buy this!" Or more recently, "I deserve fives because I say so!" But thanks. Often the source of an inspiration turns into something else.
