The Lyrics

I saw you working on the docks from 6 to 2.
I was in a van totally spying in on you.
Your insurance company paid me lots for that to do.
(oh-oh no!)
You told your doctor that you had a hurting knee.
But you stood and walked ok if anyone asks me.
Lucky I had a camera made by Sony.
(oh-oh no)
And for your lawyers......(o-oh no)
What will they tell them?
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
Pictures came and exposed your scam.
(ohhhh oh oh nooo)

And now we meet in a civil court room
I'll play my tapes and the judge will lower the boom.
And your own greed, will be the cause of your doom
(oh-oh no)
You were the worst one (oh-oh no)
You were the best one
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
In my van and in my car.
I got tape while you danced in a bar.
(oh-oh-oh-oh-no. Oh-oh-oh-oh-no)

VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!

In my van and in my car.
I'll follow you wherever you are.
Pictures came and exposed your lie....
I nailed you, I'm a private eye.......!

You are......a video starrrrrrrrr!
You are......A video starrrrrrrrr!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
You are......a video starrrrrrrrr!
You are......A video starrrrrrrrr!
You are......a video starrrrrrrrr!
You are......A video starrrrrrrrr!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
VIDEO KILLED YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM!
You are......a video starrrrrrrrr!
You are......A video starrrrrrrrr!

A very clever idea and quite funny!

I LOVE it! I work for an insurance company. I know the usual opinion--"they're a bunch of crooks!" That's due to sometimes crummy coverage with extremely high premiums. But WHY is that?? Because of the people this parody is about! I personally know several people like that, and to me, they're all bums. It's because of them that we have such high insurance rates!

Excellent! I was hooked by the title before I got to the contents, and they were great also.

I read this yesterday. The theme and song combination are great. Good choices man.

Very clever idea - not always perfectly paced, but pretty damn close. Certainly your best here - keep 'em coming.

Sounds like you know a little something about this stuff. This is really slick. I like it.
