The Lyrics

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 them hackers that's the way you do it
They download music as an mp3
That ain't buyin' that's the way you do it
Music for nothin' and vids for free
Now that ain't buyin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya the leet ain't dumb
Maybe go to Napster for your copied music
Maybe go to Ka-zaa for your pron

We gotta install faster processors
Custom hard drive deliveries
We gotta get the latest music
We gotta get those mp3s

See that little hacker, sitting in his mommas basement
The RIAA won't find him down there
That little hacker's got a dozen hard drives full
That little hacker he's never washed his har

We gotta install faster processors
Custom hard drive deliveries
We gotta get the latest music
We gotta get those mp3s

I shoulda learned to write those programs
I shoulda learned to rip those songs
Look at that hacker, he got it all on his computer
Man we could have some fun
And he's uploading what? Hawaiian noises?
Bangin' on the bongoes like a chimpanzee
That ain't buyin' that's the way you do it
Get your music for nothin' get your vids for free

We gotta install faster processors
Custom hard drive deliveries
We gotta get the latest music
We gotta get those mp3s, Lord

Now that ain't payin' that's the way you do it
You download music as an mp3
That ain't payin' that's the way you do it
Music for nothin' and your vids for free
Music for nothin' and vids for free
Napster and Kazaa are copyright names, but then, when have they ever worried about copyright.

I wrote a parody of Money For Nothing nearly twenty years ago about cable TV piracy, pretty much in the same spirit as this song ("We wanna install Home Box Office/Cinemax and Disney/We want the Playboy Channel and Sportsvision/We wanna steal the Cable TV". Your song was much better. 555
