Don't Steal This Song
Please don't steal this song, don't steal this song Our writer's only income's unemployment compensation Our manager's involved in expensive litigation Our publisher's grandfather, he's got a heart condition Our producer's kid's in college, he's got to pay tuition Our record company exec he's got 3 alimonies Our PR Rep's a gambler, and he's got to play his ponies Our lighting crew director's kid got drunk he's got to make bail Our lawyer's got a wife, 3 kids, a mortgage out in Scarsdale And there's just a couple of scraps for us to help us get along So please don't steal this song, don't steal this song 'Cause if you're burnin' we ain't earnin' And we'll burn out before too long So please don't steal this song Our stage manager's brother's got a friend who has a cousin Whose step-sister was abandoned by her cheatin' lyin' husband Who ran off to Puerto Rico with her best friend's former roommate And absconded with her money now she's livin' out of her suitcase And she needs a small donation, her account is overdrawn And she's such a close relation, we gotta help her get along And we really need the money or our show just can't go on So please don't steal this song don't steal this song 'Cause if you're burnin' we ain't earnin' And we'll burn out before too long So please don't steal this song, don't steal this song I can hear 'em talkin' now, goes something like this D'ya think this song is worth 99, 79 cents I don't know I can get a burger for that Yeah, but you can only eat it once So what makes you think I wanna listen to this song again Well, you never know, maybe it'll grow on you, it might be worth a buck Yeah, and we can help those poor people out
