The Balland of the Writer's Strike

Ok, the writer's strike is STILL going on and they're even picketing now. And that means since they can't write anything I'll have to do it. Let's go with a parody of "The Ballad of John and Yoko" from the Beatles for this one.

Standing at the curb in LA
Trying to strike for more pay
The man in AMPTP said “This won’t work for me”
You know he didn’t care about fair play

Christ you know it ain’t easy
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They’re will be nothing but reality TV

Our for DVD sales cut is a crime
Emerging technology we don’t get a dime
They say they will deal
But that’s not how we feel
It looks like its prolonged strike time

Christ you know it ain’t easy
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They’re will be nothing but reality TV

Last time it was 22 weeks long
People felt that was terribly wrong
No new TV shows
All the theatres close
But to win we had to be strong

Christ you know it ain’t easy
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They’re will be nothing but reality TV

The studios tried to rush all their shoots
They heard the rumor of the strike from their suits
But the WGA crew
Went on strike early too
And foiled all their stockpiling pursuits

Christ you know it ain’t easy
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They’re will be nothing but reality TV
