P2P Lyrics--courtesy of Joey deVillaemail@example.com
Director of Developer Relations and Accordion Guy
(Sing aloud to the tune of "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing"):
I'd like to teach the world to crunch
Data with P2P
Trade MP3s and cure disease
And go search for E.T.s
(To the tune of "Fight for Your Right to Party"):
You went out and bought a CD by GWAR
You want to make a copy for your car
Look out, here comes the RIAA
You want an MP3, but they say "no way!"
You gotta fight
For your right
To faaaaair use!
