Video of the Week: Jim Keyes’ ‘Warner Wonderland’

From the artist’s YouTube channel:

Warner Music Group has pulled down my video of “Winter Wonderland” citing copyright infringement. Apparently I’m the reason they’re not making money. I wonder if they’ll pull down all the videos of people singing “Happy Birthday”, another song they own. Here’s my parody of “Winter Wonderland”, which, because it’s clearly a parody, does not constitute copyright infringement. Enjoy!

“Warner Wonderland”

When I sing
You can’t listen
Without Warner’s Permission
I’m singing this song
But they think it’s wrong
Living in a Warner Wonderland

Gone away
Is the freedom
To sing songs
When we need ’em
They’re so afraid
That they won’t get paid
Living in a Warner wonderland

In an office there’s a guy who’s watching
Scouring the web for videos
Of anyone who might be ripe for squashing
By singing songs that everybody knows

Later on
They’ll conspire
To put my butt
in the fire
Won’t let me play
Unless they get pay
Living in a Warner Wonderland

In an office there’s a guy who’s counting
And noticing that Warner’s running short
Adding up all the debt that’s mounting
And looking for someone to take to court

Later on
They’ll conspire
To put your butt
In the fryer
Looking to sue
They might come for you
Living in a Warner Wonderland
