The Lyrics

A long, long time ago,
I can still remember,
How that gore used to make me smile,
And I knew that if I had my chance,
I'd buy tickets for Save the Last Dance,
And sneak into something more vile,

But May 1999 made me quiver,
It was almost summer but I started to shiver,
What's this in the press?
Jack Valenti's speaking to Congress
The MPAA has some horrible pride
To push the happiness of teenagers aside
And I knew no matter how hard I tried
The movies still would've died

So bye bye this American Pie (2)
They'll show'ya on HBO'ya
But HBO is too long for I
And all my friends were asking why oh why
Saying 'How will I see people die?'
'How will I see people die?'

Do you think we're indeserving of
Seeing crap like the Wings of the Dove
With the worst laws since Jim Crow
Do you think that you can control?
The number of kids that reach their goal,
And can you get me out of this crappy movie bout a dog show

Well I know that you're extremely dim
Cause I know a homeless guy named Jim
We just give him a ten,
And we can all see Scream again,

I just was a teenager out of his luck,
Who wanted to hear a celebrity say f***
But I knew I was in the muck
The day the movies died

I started singing

Now for our lives we've tickled our funny bone
With a movie about two people stoned
But that's not how it is right now
When they decided the age limit would be eighteen
When most “R” movies are made for teens
They were practically shooting themselves in the foot

And while the ticket man was looking away
We snuck into the sixth day
The employees were unknown
We we're seeing Schwarzenegger's clone

And as the movie theatre became dark
Some actor made a dirty remark
Only to be eaten by a shark
The day the movies died

We were singing


And there we were all in one place
A generation sick of seeing rat race
With two hours to the next showing
So come on when you're on a date with a chick
Don't take her to see an R-rated flick
Cuz you'll get denied and that's the end

And as I watched the adults all get by
I secretly wished that I
Was over eighteen
So I could see the big screen

And as the surround sound blasted down the street
I decided to get something to eat
I saw had to laugh with defeat
The day the movies died


I met a guy who seemed cool
And I asked him to break a rule
He said 'go see spy kids' you brat
I went down to my big brother's store
He could get me through the door
But my brother didn't say ok

And in the streets it was the worst
The kids all cursed like Fred Durst
But no one got inside
Our little brains we're fried

And the man that was a hero to me
Blew up some bad guys with T.N.T.
I'll just catch it on DVD
The day the movies died

And he was singin'
