The Lyrics

This is my parody in support of the writers strike, enjoy
Pay the writers
Pay pay writers
For all the shows and films you stream.

Pay the writers you should pay your writers
2% is not extreme

End, end this strike today.
Must be a better way.
Until then we will scream
Give them a better deal

Pay the writers
Pay pay writers

Scripts by humans not AI

I really hope that they can
Find a compromise man
Just give them a bit more
Thats the way to ensure

Pay the writers
Pay pay writers
For all the shows and films you stream.

Pay the writers you should pay your writers

Scripts by humans not AI

Streams and even network show
Come on Hollywood go
Common ask the top brass,
To go back to the past

Chris you can stop holding your breath for that request to record this song. I've made the same kind of outreach to have some of my parodies be recorded. None have responded with an expressed interest. Unless you know a network of people, you may want to invest in a karaoke machine.
