THIS IS NOT MY PARODY

Well, not entirely. I covered the chorus and first two verses of LaughPong ( http://www.youtube.com/LaughPong ) and added my own third verse to it.
Watch his original video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1p-TV4...

Instrumental: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPqS_O...

Original "American Pie" by Don McLean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAsV5-...

There are a lot of words in the video and I'm really too lazy to rewrite them all here.

LYRICS
A long, long time ago
On the world's largest network of interconnected computers
Those LOLcats used to make me laugh
And I knew I could make a joke
And not be sued by nasty folk
On the RIAA's behalf

Then along came SOPA/PIPA
The internet's very own grim reaper
Users could not edit
Ars Technica and Reddit
Tumblr, Gawker, Hacker News, and
Something Awful sang the blues
And every login was refused,
The day the LOLcats died

Why, why are laws a thing you can buy?
They got paid off, should be laid off, re-election denied
Our web means more than lawyers, lobbies, and lies
So speak up before the internet dies
Speak up 'fore the internet dies

Can you write a decent law?
Do you care about copyright at all?
Or just winning back your seat?
Content will begin to ebb
You'll watch the slow death of the web
And you'll be left with nothing more to tweet

Well, I know it's looking pretty grim
'Cause they'll tear our culture limb from limb
There's too much damn support
Oh this law we must abort~
Oh we can't let lobbies run amok
With our series of tubes and that big dump truck
And I know some folks who ought give a [MESSAGE REDACTED]
Or let the LOLcats die

So tell me!
Why, why are laws a thing you can buy?
They got paid off, should be laid off, re-election denied
Our web means more than lawyers, lobbies, and lies
So speak up before the internet dies
Speak up 'fore the internet dies

If you're a fan of AMVs
Machinima or parodies
You would help to make these bills fail
Because creators won't get a say
If those 1 percenters have their way
You might see us again in jail
Say goodbye to mashups and chipmunks
And covers sung by thousands of drunks
You want to know what was spoken?
But the URLs are broken
And the companies I admire most-
Where quotes and vids and users post
Took just 1 pic then they were toast
The day the LOLcats died

And I was singing
Why, why are laws a thing you can buy?
They got paid off, should be laid off, re-election denied
Our web means more than lawyers, lobbies, and lies
So speak up before the internet dies
Speak up 'fore the internet dies
We were singing
Why, why are laws a thing you can buy?
They got paid off, should be laid off, re-election denied
Our web means more than lawyers, lobbies, and lies
So speak up before the internet dies
