Is Rupert On My Telephone (Song Parody by Rick London c2011) Sung To How Long Has This Been Going On by Ace

July 19, 2011


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              For my DW Lee Hiller-London

Is Rupert hacking Hugh Grant’s cell phone?
What’s that clicking on my Smart Phone?
In parliamentary court Rupert sits with his son,
        Spinning their phone hacking scheme,
Surely Louise Mensch has her suspicions,
And Piers Morgan’s new book shows he has a hacking degree.

Rupert better prepare to be a “has been”,
As the scales of justice weigh,
He’s had  years of riding by shark fin,
           Now stuck on the dock of the bay.

What’s that clicking on my telephone?
Is Rupert on Hugh Grant’s cell phone?    

(Musical interlude)

With all of your courtroom legal guns,
You’ll need more than The Dream Team,
You spin and old story till its spun,
Parliament’s not quite as dumb as he seems
Rupert’s defense is looking a bit slim,
He says his employees betrayed,
Rebekah Brooks is his Stevie-Nicks wannabe broody hen.

Is News Of The World hacking my cell hone?
Is that click Rupert’s listening on?
Is he a kindergartener overgrown?
Is that Rupert on my phone?
Looks like Fleet Street is gonna be a Murdoch-Free Zone

Rupert Murdoch Is A Bulldog (Parody Song by Rick London c2011) To The Tune Of 3 Dog Night’s Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog

July 19, 2011


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Dedicated to my DW Lee Hiller-London

 

Rupert Murdoch is a bulldog,
NewsCorps is his narcissist shrine,
Now that his useless whistle blower’s dead,
In the air is scent of media mogul swine,
But Rupert and Sonny Boy Are in Court trying to shine

Singin’
{Refrain}
News Of The World,
What happened to the Aussie sacred cow?
Whistleblower Sean Hoare swimmin’ with the fishes of the deep blue sea
And you shouldn’t have hacked Hugh Grant ya see.

Too bad for News Of The World,                            
A BP Cover-Up Deja Vu,
If I were Rupert I’d throw away and change my drawers,
And listen to British court’s diligence due.

Goodbye Cash Cow.
{Refrain}

 

With all my assets on freeze

Love to hack those phones,
But don’t pick on me I’m likely your Internet provider
And my FX Network has the best reruns,
And only toddlers watch Nickleodeon
