Deceit & Disney:

Music by Monnotorium
Vocals by Jollybeard99
Lyrics by scottpontiac

Verse
People have the use of creative works
Once long enough time goes by
But the suits and ties of the disney jerks
Made us kiss our liberties goodbye.

Rights to Hans Christian Andersen have been repealed
Should you use the little mermaid tale
With pen based swords and legal shields
The disney thieves protect their holy grail!

Refrain:

And so It goes on and on
It's always the same refrain
Disney marauders take 'til it's gone
Stealing stories from our Public Domain

Verse:

The Pocahantas legend was based on true
Historical events but now
In the hands of the disney rustling crew
Her name is owned and use not allowed

The Story of Mulan was of a woman able
To pass as her father in army defense
But make sure your telling of this Chinese fable
Includes money for your legal expense

Refrain:

And so it goes again and again
Stolen back by the Disney campaign
Corporate plundering, their lawyers descend
To lift our stories from the Public Domain

Chorus:

Although these many stories once were free
Against our freedom now the cards are so stacked
Deceit & Disney now protected by Legal Decree
The international Mickey Mouse Protection Act!

Verse:

The Lion King was snatched
from Hamlet and Africa
But Disney nabbed with a load of cash
The Mali Epic of Sundiata

It started from their first film brought forth
That's when all of our hopes would dim
'Cause Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
Were pilfered from the Brothers Grimm

Refrain:

So over and over the pattern repeats
At what point do the people regain
What the Disney company robs and cheats
They loot our stories from the Public Domain


Chorus:

Although these many stories once were free
Against our freedom now the cards are so stacked
Deceit & Disney now protected by Legal Decree
The international Mickey Mouse Protection Act!

Break (Instrumental)


Chorus:

Although these many stories once were free
Against our freedom now the cards are so stacked
Deceit & Disney now protected by Legal Decree
The international Mickey Mouse Protection Act!
