The Lyrics

A song mocking the Stop Anti-Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act.
Dear God, the Net takes a quick break, Congress snakes, SOPA
Jimbo Wales is quite afraid.
PIPA is so quite insane, sites will go black soon
Bills kill our free speech, freer than the TV
Write a bill in faux speak, give no thanks
The browser's going wowser with fear like lost rights

Fire Congress liars, folks resenting darker days, an Internet police force due to copyright
Left for dead is copyright, a blurry source of fury, breathing down your neck.
Site by site reporting action -- Let's protest crap
Online, pirates playing?
Fine them!
Uh oh, overboard, copyright or copywrong? What will we do?
Save the Net, save free speech. Web should be fair use --"Listen to your heart," see? "When he, when he's calling for you" -- fair use of the rights, right?
You alcoholic, histriotic, Love Bites, Dark Knight, IP law's uptight

It's the end of the Web as we know it.
It's the end of the Web as we know it.
It's the end of the Web as we know it... go black tonight

Six o'clock - Get on Google. What I see's no funny doodle
Slash and burn, tree fern, try to make yourself learn
Laughing stock, non-infringing, site blocking, bed wetting
Every sentence Bowdler-ate. Your worst scandal since Watergate
Orwell, Orwell, like an Orwell. Kill bills, kill bills
Wanna hear Rush? Crushed. Uh-oh, this means YouTube's yesteryear
"Renegade" Styx? Cleared! A government, a government, a government that tries
This should be solution, kil lt he bill and copyright and all is fine

It's the end of the Web as we know it.
It's the end of the Web as we know it. (So why not end all copyright?)
It's the end of the Web as we know it (So why not end all copyright?) go black tonight
(black tonight)

It's the end of the Web as we know it. (It's time to kill a different bill)
It's the end of the Web as we know it. (It's time to kill a different bill)
It's the end of the Web as we know it (It's time to kill a different bill) go black tonight.

And what's the deal with copyright? If abolished would we die?
Don't think so. Am I right?
Harvey Weinstein. Leonard Nimoy. Jimbo Wales and Albert Brooks.
Joe McCarthy, Half Baked, Mr. Bean, boom!
You alcoholic, histrionic, can't take our rights? Right.

It's the end of the Web as we know it. (It's time abolish copyright)
It's the end of the Web as we know it. (It's time abolish copyright)
It's the end of the Web as we know it. (It's time abolish copyright) go black tonight

It's the end of the Web as we know it.
It's the end of the Web as we know it.
It's the end of the Web as we know it (The Congressmen are clearly stoned) go black tonight

It's the end of the Web as we know it. (The Congressmen are clearly stoned)
It's the end of the Web as we know it. (The Congressmen are clearly stoned)
It's the end of the Web as we know it (The Congressmen are clearly stoned) go black tonight

It's the end of the Web as we know it. (It's time abolish copyright)
It's the end of the Web as we know it. (It's time abolish copyright)
It's the end of the Web as we know it. (It's time abolish copyright) go black tonight
