The Lyrics

(Sung by Sting In background)
*I want my, I want my MP3s*
*I want my, I want my MP3s*
*I want my, I want my MP3s*
*I want my, I want my MP3s*

Now look at those techies that's the way you do it
You get the music as an MP3
That ain't buyin' that's the way you do it
Music for nothin' through your ISP
Now that ain't buyin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your index finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We gotta' install the latest WinAmp
Custom AmpSkins for us to see
We gotta' get a copy of Napster
We gotta' make those custom CD's

See that fed'ral agent with the warrant and the handgun
Yeah you know that he's out there
That fed'ral agent can't touch that darn Napster
That fed'ral agent hasn't got a prayer

We gotta' install the latest WinAmp
Custom AmpSkins for us to see
We gotta' get a copy of Napster
We gotta' make those custom CD's

(Sung by Sting)
Gotta' install the latest WinAmp
Custom AmpSkins for us to see
(Sung by Sting & lead)
We gotta' get a copy of Napster
(Sung by Sting)
We gotta' make those custom CD's

I shoulda' learned to write out programs
I shoulda' learned to work at SUN
Look at those servers, it's got the files off the servers
Man we could have some fun
And it's on there, what's that? Too many choices?
You're bangin' on the keyboard like it's all so free
That ain't buyin' that's the way you do it
Get your music for nothin' through your ISP

We gotta' install the latest WinAmp
Custom AmpSkins for us to see
We gotta' get a copy of Napster
We gotta' rip those awesome CD's

Now that ain't buyin' that's the way you do it
You get the music as an MP3
That ain't buyin' that's the way you do it
Music for nothin' through your ISP

(Sung by Sting & Lead 10+ times)
Music for nothin', fine with me

That ain't buyin'...
