The Lyrics

This parody is dedicated to Rupert Murdoch which is why it is enttled "Your Song". In England the "News Of The World" newsaper was withdrawn from circulation resulting in the staff losing their jobs. The scandal centres around bribery and corruption (so what's new!)
He’s been making his money
Now he’s had to decide
That it’s time...that he closed the paper…no where to hide
It’s not very funny
Now it’s gone down the grid
By bribing policemen to…make a few quid

And then Milly Dowler…whose phone had been hacked
So the staff…called together to be
Told they’d been sacked
On Sunday it’s closure… to the dole join the queues
And now an inquiry to…find out the truth

He had to tell everybody that
What happened was wrong
Corruption and mobile hacking has
Gone on too long
It made the headlines, made the headlines
As the facts are unfurled
How wonderful life is
With no News Of The World

The Coulson’s arrested…then let out on bail
And released…’till October so they
Can measure the scale
The country suggests that
Miss Brooks should go too
Condoning his actions or
Just had no clue?

So Murdoch’s big empire
Has lost it’s big crown
And The Times…are a-changing now that
The Sun has gone down
He’s ducking the shell fire
Like the troops had to do
There’ll be Sun On Sunday
To start off anew?

So Cameron’s getting nervous when
Grilled by the press
Demanding a judge appointed to
Sort out the mess
It made the headlines, made the headlines
As the facts are unfurled
How wonderful life is
With no News Of The World

It made the headlines, made the headlines
As the facts are unfurled
How wonderful life is
With no News Of The World

Very nicely paced, liked the reference to "Times a-changing". Feel sorry for the good people who lost their jobs. It's sad to see such a long-lived institution brought down. Your parody makes the story a lot clearer to me. Liberals in this country are hoping for the end to FOX News.

is it illegal to have a popular news show? just because many conservative people like it doesnt mean you have to control it. wanna control something you liberals said you'd control - try getting the troops home by aug 2010 or lowering unemployment from your porkulus debt you created. you freedom hating socialists

Good riddance to a crappy paper.

@ Patrick:
It's not so sad when the institution persistantly employs dodgy crooks, and scumbags without morals!
