Look what they done to my song ma 
Look what they done to my song 
Well it's the only thing 
That I could do half right 
And it's turning out all wrong ma 
Look what they done to my song 
 
Look what they done to my brain ma 
Look what they done to my brain 
Well they picked it like a chicken bone 
And I think I'm half insane ma 
Look what they done to my song 
 
I wish I could find a good book to live in 
Wish I could find a good book 
Well if I could find a real good book 
I'd never have to come out and look at 
What they done to my song 
 
La la la la la la la la la 
La la la la la la la la la 
La la la la la la la la la 
Look what they done to my song 
 
But maybe it'll all be alright ma 
Maybe it'll all be okay 
Well if the people are buying tears 
I'll be rich someday ma 
Look what they done to my song 
 
Ils ont change ma chanson, ma 
Ils ont change ma chanson 
See'est la seule chose que je peux faire 
Et ce n'est pas bon, ma
Ils ont change ma chanson
 
Look what they done to my song, ma 
Look what they done to my song 
Well they tied it up in a plastic bag 
And turned it upside down ma 
Look what they done to my song 
 
Look what they done to my song ma 
Look what they done to my song 
It's the only thing that I could do alright 
And they turned it upside down 
Oh ma 
Look what they done to my song
