《Don’t Download This Song》


Update@30/10/2006:
剛剛找到資料,《Which Backstreet Boy is Gay》並非 Weird Al Yankovic 所唱,正確歌手為 MikeBoySlim,詳細見 experts.about.com

你或許未聽過 Weird Al Yankovic 的名字,但會聽過《Which Backstreet Boy Is Gay》這首搞笑歌。Weird Al Yankovic 近來一首很受注目的歌,是《Don’t Download This Song》,諷刺 RIAA 對音樂下載的窮追猛打:

歌詞 (來自 SongMeanings):

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 and then you’re robbing liquor stores
And sellin’ crack and runnin’ over school kids with your car

So don’t download this song
The record store’s where you belong
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should
Oh, don’t download this song

Oh, you don’t wanna 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-Vee?
And diamond-studded swimming pools
These things don’t grow on trees
So all I ask is, “Everybody, please…”

Don’t donwload this song (Don’t do it, no, no)
Even Lars Ulrich knows it’s wrong (You can just ask him)
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should (You really should)
Oh, don’t download this song

Don’t donwload 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 (Right now) like you know that you should (Go out and buy it)
Oh, don’t download this song

Don’t download this song (No, no, no, no, no, no)
You’ll burn in hell before too long (and you deserve it)
Go and buy the CD (Just buy it) like you know that you should (You cheap bastard)
Oh, don’t download this song
