Parody Song Title:

"The Song Is Mine"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

When this song was recorded, Paul McCartney casually discussed his investments with Michael Jackson, telling him how much he thought songs were good things to purchase. (Paul owns thousands of them) Michael took his advice and bought the entire Beatles catalogue out from under Paul, who was in negotiations to “get them back”. This sort of wrecked their friendship, and Paul is still upset about how Michael makes money off them by leasing them to advertisers. (I mocked this practice years ago with “Sellin' a Product”, a parody of “ Eleanor Rigby”) This parody has lain dormant in my brain for years, but all the MJ news lately has made me dredge it up.
Michael: Every day I sell rights to one more
Those commercials pay quite well
Got an accident attorney here
In'trested in “If I Fell”

The song is mine
The Beatle song is mine
I know it's mine
Because I bought each note and line

Paul: I don't understand why you do this
“Yesterday” is not for sale
I wrote a lot of hits I don't own
It's a final coffin nail

It once was mine
That great hit song was mine
Now I just whine
They're on my telly all the time

At least you don't own “Wings”
(Money I won't share)

Michael: “And I Love Her” sells those rings
(Here, There, Everywhere)

Michael and Paul: So kiss my ass you bitch, won this round

Michael: But we both cannot have them
So “I'm Down” sells Viagra
“Honey Pie” hawking pastries
“Drive My Car” will be selling Integra

Paul: Give you losts of rope, you're goin' down
And I hope you go to jail

Michael: I know this is hard for you to accept
But I you still are going to find
The songs are mine
The Fab Four songs are mine
Each friggin' line
Sir Paul, the Northern songs are mine

Michael and Paul: They're mine, They're mine
No, go blow, they're mine
The songs are mine , the songs are mine
The songs are mine , the songs are mine

Paul: That “Girl” is mine, maybe John's
That “Help” is mine, maybe John's

Michael: It's not a crime
To say the little boy is mine
I mean, the GIRL is mine
I mean the SONG is mine.

Paul: Michael, we'll go to court over this, okay?

Michael: Paul, I think I told you, I'm a glover, getting' whiter

Paul: I've heard other rumors, Michael
She told me that you don't even like girls, don't you remember?

Michael: Well after hearing a few of my BEATLE songs, she said she'd “Let It Be!”

Paul: Those were “Things She Said Today?”

Michael: “She Said, She Said”

Paul: Oh, Darling, please believe me

Michael: That's gonna cost you.

Michael and Paul: The damn songs are mine!!!!

(sounds of the most pitiful catfight you ever heard..)

Bravo! Where MJ might be going, the ownership of these songs will be the least of his worries.

Something tells me some convict is gonna sing a John Lennon song to Michael Jackson soon: "You'd better run for your life while you can, little girl..."

This is great, Rick. I feel like, upon being reminded with this read, that I'd heard the story before...but didn't really remember. Thanks for giving me another thing to hate about Michael Jackson...; ) 5s...

It looks likely that Jacko will sell the songs. By the way, Sean Locke said of him on '29 Minutes Of Fame' that 'he's got a fairground in his back yard! It wouldn't be more obvious if he had a house made of sweets!'
