The Lyrics

I got my college newspapers for the last few weeks sent to me a couple of days ago and there was an article about something called SEVIS which checks up on international students and what courses they take. What's next? This song is an idea that hopefully never comes true - it's also song #100 by me
Cam in the place where you live
Yes it's there
Think about oppression
Wonder why it happens to you
And cam in the place where you work
It's there too
Think about the things that you do
If you don't you might lose your job

If you are afraid, you have a right
They don't trust you if your skin is not white
The feds are going to watch you all day
So you'd better take care what you say

Cam in the place where you live
Yes it's there
Think about big brother
And you know he is watching you
And cam in the place where you work
It's there too
Think about the things that you do
If you don't you might lose your job

Your feet are going to be in a cell
Since you'll say your country is hell
You're angry because you are watched by some spies
To watch for anger
The spy system tries


Cam in the place where you live
Yes it's there
Think about big brother
And you know he is watching you
And cam in the place where you work
It's there too
Think about the things that you do
If you don't you might lose your job

And foreign students, will be watched all the time
While white militants
Can commit a crime
The camera system is kinda confused
The system will surely be abused

A cam
Everywhere
Think about location maybe you should move somewhere else
A cam (cam)
No more rights
Think about fair democracy
Wonder what has happened

Cam in the place where you live
Yes it's there
Think about big brother
And you know he is watching you
And cam in the place where you work
It's there too
Think about the things that you do
If you don't you might lose your job

Cam every place that you are (no more trust)
Cam every place that you are (no more trust)
The feds are going to watch you all day (cam every place that you are)
So you'd better take care what you say. Cause cams

Once again, Tone-Def, you have created a parody that I would rush out to the store and buy if you were a musician.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
