The Lyrics


This ain’t the way
That news-team feeds oughta be.
The way that this is, whoa!
Is just a travesty.
He’s just a thug who’s trying to own
Every channel for his minions’ drone.

Guy to fear’s Rupert,
Guy to fear’s Rupert,
His clownish idiots, crazy, screaming in my ear.
Guy to fear’s Rupert,
Sleaze creep Rupert.
Whatever he touches—wasted,
Real news on a bier.

Thuggish crew
Is shrieking, gasified,
And they can’t explain, oh no,
They bray high-pitched screaming tides.
I look at them, I’m sickened, then
I recall who’s behind these women, men.

Guy to fear’s Rupert,
Guy to fear’s Rupert,
The sound of his minions crazy screaming in my ear.
Guy to fear’s Rupert,
Sleaze deal[er] Rupert.
Whatever he schmutzes—wasted,
True news on a bier.

You hear his dupe jerks all the time, ye-eck!
You hear his stooge clerks: no-turn-lights-on crazy.
You hear his fools chirp all the time.
Guy to fear’s Rupert,
Guy to fear’s Rupert, matey!


Guy to fear’s Rupert,
Guy to jeer’s Rupert,
A “down under” illness that has steamed like Dis* to here.
Guy who sneers: Rupert,
Sheep-heap Rupert.
Whatever he touches—tasteless
It ain’t news—that’s clear.

*Dis (Divine Comedy), the fictional city in The Divine Comedy that contains the lower circles of hell and alternate name for Lucifer
*Dis, an alternative name for Satan
*Dis Pater, predecessor of Pluto in Roman Mythology and ancestor of the Gauls according to Roman thought

Probably one of the best arguments that money paired with media CAN lead the masses. Sadly, it's money hell lent.

How true to life your parody is. In the Aughts decade TV news didn't cover the corruptionand ignored big problems hardly at all. We got a newsman kissing an older generation's butts, sexploits and releases from DUI jail terms by dumb "divas" who have no musical or acting talents - just T & A, and propaganda (like the elections coming tomorrow). Rupert Murdoch started this disease Down Under and now American media is duping him in order to compete. It's sad sad sad but your parody gets a 5 5 5.
