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’s Gone Away (Song Parody by Rick London c2011) To The Tune Of Otis Redding’s Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay

July 19, 2011

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Dedicated To my DW Lee Hiller-London

 Rupert Murdoch’s career is done,
            He even had to close The Sun

Committed the 7 moral sins,
Hope he’s notified his next of kin…

                                                                                                                    [Chorus]
He’s hacked over a thousand cashes,
And has the instincts of a bird of prey,
We wish Rupert would just go away,

                                                 He just wastes our time.                                                                                                                                                          

Whistle blower had a self-inflicted trauma,
the   Swimming with handcuffs at the bottom of  King Edward’s Bay

                                  “Cause he had nobody to write for,
                                                                                    And Rupert’s prosecutors plan an Aussie buffet,

                                                                                                                                                                                                             Just Busted…..

                                                                                                                                                                                                            [Chorus]

Soon he’ll be asking for some spare change,
He’s hacked enough to know Hugh Grant’s middle name
And you thought media was run by the Jews,
                          Not really, but those who do, run it a bit more sane.


  This old media dinosaur has joined The Flinstones,
While the whistle blower’s corpse turns to bones,
If News Corp should soon be gone….
We can visit Rupert in a comfy rest home,
                           Another media bust

                                                                                         [Chorus]

                                                                                             [Whistle]
