The Lyrics

to the RIAA... you bastids.. just wait till the first lawyer finds you've been snooping and searching in someone's computer without a warrant, and they sure your
arrogant collective asses off

when I boot up, well I know I'm gonna be,
I'm gonna be the man who boots it up for you,
when I log on, yeah I know I'm gonna be,
I'm gonna see and view Kazaa for you
when I download, yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who downloads Mp3's
and if I burn them well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who makes cd's for you

and I will swap 500 files, and I will swap 500 more
just to be the man who swapped a thousand files,
and then I'll swap some more

when I"m listenin, yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's listenin for you
as I pirate, well I know I'm gonna be,
I'm gonna be the man who pirates songs for you
if they find me, well I know I'm gonna plea,
I'm gonna plea that I have no cash and it's true..


and I will swap 500 files, and I will swap 500 more
just to be the man who swapped a thousand files,
and then I'll swap some more
