  • Parody of "Give It Away" by The Red Hot Chili Peppers and a tribute to the first anniversary of TheFuMP.com. (peterpuck9)
  • Song Lyrics:
    What I got you gotta give it to your papas!
    What I got you gotta give it to your mamas!
    What I got is the Creative Commons
    Build a little empire, work in my pajamas!

    What I got you gotta put it in your LJs.
    What I got you gotta put it in your MySpace.
    What I got you gotta put it in your iPod.
    Slow adopters, My God, put it in your Tripod!

    Realize, sharin' doesn't destroy ya.
    Take my stuff, share and enjoy, yeah.
    And suddenly, I'm a self-employer
    How come everybody wanna keep it like a lawyer?

    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Great free stuff finds a way to pay, now.

    So what I hear about a “Cult of the Amateur?”
    We're new professionals, sorry if we damage your
    Chokehold racket, got your publisher bleedin'.
    Maybe you'd consider writin' somethin' worth readin'.
    Chief Editor can't touch me now.
    It's in the hands of the bourgeoisie now
    And now we know, 'cause expression is free now,
    Doesn't make it better when they chop a frickin' tree down.

    What I got you gotta put it in your ear hole.
    What I got you gotta put it in your eye hole.
    What I got is a creative revival!
    Quality is viral, shut yer pompous pie hole!

    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Awww... Aw yeah!
    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!
    Hundred million people got somethin to say now!

    Lucky you in the new millenium,
    Mind to the hand to the keys to the Pentium,
    Net to the screen to the eyes to the cranium,
    World Wide game of brain and titanium.

    Old Guard! Take it under advisement:
    It's technological enfranchisement.
    Suin' my mom ain't fightin' the enticements.
    Put your catalogs under CC License!

    What I got you gotta make it find a market.
    What I got you gotta guide it to the target.
    This is a parody, 'm never gonna chart it.
    Steal this song! (Pay a dollar if you heart it!)

    Give it away give it away give it away give it away now
    Give it away give it away give it away give it away now
    Give it away give it away give it away give it away now
    I'm goin' all in now, everybody play now!

    These are some of the people I know personally, who make their living as creative professionals, and give it away.
