The Lyrics

It's time they realize the 'net is hear to stay. They killed Napster, then Limewire, Kazaa, Morpheus, and a whole bunch of others caught on. Face it...why pay 18 bucks for a CD to hear the one song you really want when you can download it in five minutes for free? Back in the day, we recorded tapes for each other and no one minded. Now, because we can burn a CD, it's pirating? Well...if it is, then HAR ME MATEYS!!!
well, you know they can't keep the money
all their lives
so they complain about their rights, they say,
but it's too late.

'Cause it don't matter what they say,
We're gonna download anyway,
I guess it doesn't matter,
It really doesn't matter anymore
There's dust on the CDs at the record store
Ain't gonna give 'em no more money
Get it all for free from the peer-to-peer
They say it's cruel but i just don't believe it...

(Chorus)
Pi-rate! with me oh yea,
Pi-rate an MP3
Record company is losin' lots of money
'Cause we can get all the songs (For free!)

Paying eighteen dollars just to hear a song or two?
No I don't want that no more
The big stars say they can't get paid
They got a bad deal anyway
I guess it doesn't matter
It really doesn't matter anymore
There's dust on the CDs at the record store
Ain't gonna give 'em no more money
Get it all for free from the peer-to-peer
They say it's cruel but i just don't believe it...

(Chorus)
Pi-rate! with me oh yea,
Pi-rate an MP3
Record company is losin' lots of money
'Cause we can get all the songs (For free!)

I don't think it'll be so bad
I don't know why they're so mad
'Cause with the internet, that's the way it is
We got the internet. Did you think you were the best we could get? no no no

There's dust on the CDs at the record store
Ain't gonna give 'em no more money
The big sob story's what they want you to hear
They say it's cruel but i just don't believe it...

Pi-rate! with me oh yea,
Pi-rate an MP3
Record company is losin' lots of money
'Cause we can get all the songs (For free!)
