The Lyrics

This is about downloading MP3's illegally
Young man, there's a reason to frown.
I said young man, you better live underground.
I said young man, because they know you now.
They won't let you be happy.
Young man, you used lime wire I know.
I said young man, because you were short on your dough.
But you can't play there, and I'm sure they can find many ways you did hard crime.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
They have everything to see how you enjoyed listening to the Backstreet Boys.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
They see your MP3.
And how it got filled.
And who gave you the bill.

Young man, it is wrong you see.
Yes young man, that you did not pay a fee.
I said young man, though it is your dream.
But you've got to know this one thing.
No man, can steel like yourself.
Young man, put your pride on the shelf.
And go there, to the RIAA, I'm sure it will give you a small jail limit.

They'll find you at the RIAA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
They know everything about who will pay.
They must deal with the NSA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
You won't get yourself clean.
You will get a bad meal.
At prison, they don't care how you feel.

Young man, I was once in your shoes.
I was downloading all of the blues.
I felt like no man could stop my jive.
I felt like the whole world was alive.
That's when a cop walked up to me.
And said “young man, get into the car please.
You got sued by the RIAA.
They will charge you they say.”


They'll find you at the RIAA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
They have everything to find how you got your joy. They know how you downloaded your noise.
RIAA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
Young man young man, your gonna feel down.
Because young man young man, your gonna be found.

RIAA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
Young man young man, are you listening to me.
Young man young man, your gonna see.
RIAA.
They'll find you at the RIAA.
Young man young man, your gonna be by yourself.
Young man young man, in a big prison cell.

Shirley Temple - July 22, 2009 - Report this comment
I think I need a faster broadband connection before i could tap into The Pirate Bay or Limewire. But yeah, there are a lot of issues concerning that. 555 downloads for you, my friend.
