DRM

DRM, Perhaps you don’t know what it means
But you should. You see,
DRM is the stuff that keeps you from listening
To your music the way you want to.
It’s Apple’s “Fairplay”,
Which is anything but.
It’s the stuff that keeps you from
Watching a DVD from Norway in the US
(Not that you would)

The big labels all sing the same tune:
“PIRACY!”
“Pay the artists, actors, producers!”
But they really scream
“More money!”
And until you, Sony BMG, Apple, Microsoft, stop
You shouldn’t expect me to pay
