Song 18: "Don't Download This Song" - 'Weird Al' Yankovic

Once in a while
Maybe you will feel the urge
To break international copyright law
By downloading mp3s
From file sharing sites
Like Morpheus, or Grokster, or LimeWire, or Kazaa.
But deep in your heart
You know the guilt would drive you mad
And the shame would leave a permanent scar
Cause you start out stealing songs
Then you're robbing liquor stores
And selling crack
And running over school kids with your car

So Don't Download This Song
The record store is where you belong
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should
Oh Don't Download This Song

Oh you don't want to mess
With the R I Double A
They'll sue you if you burn that CD-R.
It doesn't matter if you're a grandma
Or a seven year old girl
They'll treat you like the evil Hard-bitten criminal scum you are

So Don't Download This Song
Don't go pirating music all day long
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should
Oh Don't Download This Song

Don't take away money
From artists just like me
How else can I afford another solid gold Hum V
And diamond studded swimming pools
These things don't grow on trees
So all I ask is everybody Please

Don't Download This Song (Don't do it No No)
Even Lars Urlich knows it's wrong (You could just ask him)
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should
Oh Don't Download This Song

Don't Download This Song
Oh please don't you do it or you might wind up in jail like Tommy Chong (Remember Tommy)
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should
Oh Don't Download This Song.

Don't Download This Song (No no no no no no)
Or you'll burn in hell before too long (And you deserve it)
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should (You cheap bastard)
Oh don't download this song!
