Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

You want a new song
One that's easy to own
One that's free cause you got no dough
Or well, that's what you let known

You want a new song
But you don't want to pay
Would rather search, then wait online
Than spend 2-1-9-8

But you sit there so nervous
Wondering what to say
Because you were just caught by the RIAA
We're the RIAA

You want a new song
Cause you ain't rich
One that don't cost too much
Or you will complain

You want a new song
One you don't wanna pay
Gonna download them all tonight
Gonna cheat the RIAA

But you sit there so nervous
Wondering what to say
Because you were just caught by the RIAA
We're the RIAA
Want your cash today baby

You want a new song
One that sounds really good
One that will make us really mad
One that will make us look like fools

You want a new song
One by No Doubt
One by Dave Matthews or Pearl Jam
The Beatles' Twist And Shout

But you sit there so nervous
Wondering what to do
Now the RIAA is coming out to sue
We will fine and sue you.
