So I heard this song that's apparently gaining popularity and the only good part of it sounded pretty familiar. It would be nice if the super talented girl who wrote and sang the whole chorus (that was originally intended for one of her own songs) could be credited as more than a sample. "Jason DeRulo featuring Imogen Heap" would be nice, especially with the song hanging out on iTunes top two at the moment.

Yes, I know it's legal for him to sample Imogen Heap's brilliant song. I'm not upset from a legal standpoint... I'm upset from an artist's standpoint.

This is a parody of a Jason DeRulo/Imogen Heap song in which I rewrote most of the lyrics in order to express my opinion on the matter.

The teddy bear hat returns.

Capo 4, C-G-Em-D the whole time.
Mmmm whatcha say
Mmm that you only meant well?
well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say
Mmmm that it´s all for the best?
I don't think it is

You were so wrong to take her song
Only thinking 'bout yourself
Couldn't come up with your own hook
So you took one from someone else, oh no
You might be a good singer, however
The original song was so much better
Was it so tough, to give her enough
credit that it would be fair?

So you took "Hide and Seek" from Imogen Heap
Now you're top ten on iTunes
You just took her art, then you ripped it apart
And I'm pretty pissed at you
So tell me now

Chorus
Mmmm whatcha say
Mmm that you only meant well?
well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say
Mmmm that it´s all for the best?
I don't think it is
Mmmm whatcha say
Mmm that you only meant well?
well of course you did
Here's what I say
I don't think it's okay

how can you live with yourself
knowing that you did this to her
I know this happens all the time
And that's why I don't listen to the radio
You know that what you did wasn´t clever
These songs just weren't meant to be together
Was it so tough, to give her enough
credit that it would be fair?
