Weird Al med sang om fildeling

Weird Al Yankovic er en komiker som er kjent for å ha laget mange parodier på kjente musikkhits.

Nå har han laget en ny sang som tar for seg fildeling og RIAAs håndtering av musikkindustriens piratkopieringsproblem. I låten Don't download this song

synger han om fildeling og hvordan man går fra det til å rane butikker.

Et lite utdrag fra teksten:

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 selling crack and running 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 RIAA

They'll sue you if you burn that CD-R

It doesn't matter if you're a grandma or a 7-year-old girl

They'll treat you like the evil, hard-bitten criminal scum you are"
