Don't Copy That

"Don't Copy That Floppy"

Performed by MC Hart

Lyrics by MC Hart and Ilene Rosenthal

Did I hear you right, did I hear you sayin'

That you're gonna make a copy of a game without payin'?

Come on, guys, I thought you knew better don't copy that floppy!

[Don't don't don't don't...]

(Wait a minute. Who are you, anyway?

Yeah. And what are you doing on my computer?)

I'm your MC Double Def DP

That's the Disk Protector for you and the posse

That's your artists, writers, designers and pro-grammers

They pump up the images for games and gramma's that lets you learn, but also play

The games you came here for today

Now I know you love the game and that's alright to do

Because the posse who make them, they love them too

But if you start stealing, there's no more they can do

(But I just wanted to make one copy!)

You say 'I'll just make a copy, for me and a friend'

Then he'll make one and she'll make one and where will it end?

One leads to another then ten, then more,

And no one buys anything from the store

So no one gets paid and they can't make more

The posse breaks up and they close the door

Don't copy! Don't copy that floppy!

So let me break this down for you


No Carmen Sandiego, no more Oregon Trail

Tetris and the others, they're all gonna fail

Not because we want it but because you're just takin' it

Dis-res-pec-tin' all the folks who are ma-kin' it

The more you take, the less there will be

The disks become fewer, the games fall away

The screen starts to tweak, and then it will fade

Programs fall through a black hole in space

The computer world becomes bleak and stark

Loses its life and the screen goes dark

[Welcome to the end of the computer age... mwahahahaha..]

But I'm much too strong and you're much too smart

To let that happen to your chances to explore

Parts of the new age just behind the door of your minds

You're the posse of the future and you hold in your brains what's never thought before

And in time, you'll see just so much more

That's why I'm here and that's what I'm fighting for

Don't copy! Don't copy that floppy!

Now let me introduce you, to some of the teams

That will explain a little more about what I mean!

[D-D-Do-Do-Don't...Don't copy that floppy!]

You see, on these disks we have frozen in time

The creativity of someone's mind

Do you think, that because, with a flick of a key

You can copy that game, that the work is free

This creativity, we protect it by law

We value so highly, what the mind's eye saw

Don't copy! Don't copy that floppy!

[D-D-Do-Do-Don't...Don't copy.. Don't copy that floppy!]

To do the right thing, it's really simple for you

The copyright law, it will tell you what to do

Buy one, for every computer you use

Anything else is like going to the store

Taking the disk, and walking out the door

It's called thiefin', stealin', taking what's not yours

Is that really where you want your life to go?

Think about it, I don't think so.

Don't copy! Don't copy that floppy!

Now you see a game you like and you really want to try it

Don't copy that floppy, just go to the store and buy it

Think of it this way, okay?

When you're buy a disk, you're sayin' to the team

You respect what you do and what you're workin' for

We'll keep up our support so you can make up some more

We'll do the right thing and the future will be clear

There will be new programs here at the end

Don't copy! Don't copy that floppy!

Now you know how the games and the programs are made

And what you do to make sure that they're not gonna fade

The bottom line is it's all up to you

There's nothing more that I can do

The goals in your court, dribble, shoot, or pass

I'm sure you'll make your decision with class

[Don't copy that floppy]

See ya, I'm outta here.

Well Its a good thing we aren't sharing any software.........pfft pfft HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. That is great. Very rarely do people sell the games. If your going to buy a bootlegged game most likely you know that there is free versions out there, via TBP, or Demon.
