The Lyrics

If you need some music, don't be lame
If you want some songs, it don't matter the name
If you want to hear something reckless
You got to burn it onto a blank CD
Then the song is your possession
When you download it for free

If you'd like some music
If you'd like some songs
If you'd like some music
If you'd like...some songs

MP3

If it's an artist you want, you don't have to buy
You just go online, you won't believe your eyes
Ludakris and Linkin Park
Alice in Chains to old Britney
Songs for people at any age
It's all right there for you to see

If you'd like some music
If you'd like some songs
If you'd like some music
If you'd like...some songs

MP3

You won't believe this crazy internet
Or all the free stuff you can get
Forever conditioned to believe that we must buy
We must buy CDs and pay them with cash
So many singers, so many songs
It don't cost a thing, so they're out on their @$$

If you need some music, don't be lame
If you want some songs, it don't matter the name
If you want to hear something reckless
You got to burn it onto a blank CD
Then the song is your possession
When you download it for free

If you'd like some music
If you'd like some songs
If you'd like some music
If you'd like...some songs
