The Lyrics

The original lyrics are by Rudyard Kipling. This parody is of 2004.11.18.
It is always a temptation to a wealthy corporation,
To call upon a neighbour and to say:-
"You went wrong with copyright, we are quite prepared to fight,
Unless you pay us fine to go away."

And that is what is done by Bill Gates,
And the big firms who do it explain
That they must be who owns the market
And soon they'll make paid thing of rain!

It is always a temptation to a world-wide corporation,
To make their plans grow wider and to say:-
"Though we know we are at software, we are not fed up with bloatware.
To monopolize everything is the way."

And that is what is done by Bill Gates;
And we prove it again and again,
That if once you believed in the Bill Gates
You soon will pay money for rain.

There's a known corporation that makes its way on temptation
For pictures those look beautiful and all,
Concurrents are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say:-

"We never pay money to Bill Gates,
We'll look for an answer to force,
We will not win the game, but it's better than shame,
Corporation sometimes feels the cost!"
