 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

In the year of our Lord
Call it 1994
A fine vintage of mimicry

There are those that take their sound
From someone else's toil
Liking to parrots you see

I've seen the likes of Kate Bush
And Van Morrison

And make lots of money

You want some of that cheese
Just take a big ol' bite
Careful not to choke on it please

Now here we go
It's called plagiarism
