“I have a dream that someday, every GameStop in the world will sell DRM-free CDs full of 100% legal commercial roms of retro games for $2.99 each, with Free-Software-liscensed emulators included, for young gamers to discover at the bottom of the bargain bin.”
I would like to dedicate this song to the fallen Chrono Resurrection Project and to every other cool idea ever stopped by stupid burocrats.
Once in a while Maybe you will feel the urge To play games of eras long since bygone. By downloading .SMCs, or even .SMDs, Like Mario, or Metroid. Breath of Fire, or Ranma. And deep in your heart. You don't think it's all that bad. As you get, yet another dot RAR. But when you're getting ROMs, it's like robbing from the stores. And takin' a crap upon the hood of Miyamoto's car. So Don't Download This Rom They'll throw you in jail and not tell your mom! Play it on your TV Like you know that you should Oh don't download this rom Oh, you don't want to mess With Nintendo of America's policies  They'll send you a Cease and Desist letter And if you don't check your mail Then they'll come over to your house And confiscate everything you own that has any type of battery! So Don't Download This Rom They'll hang you by the neck just like Saddam Play it on your TV Like you know that you should Oh don't download this rom Don't take away money And download games for free Don't you know a crappy remake's on it's way from overseas? Never mind we don't even keep our own Lifetime Service Guarantees We promised to our customers back in 1983! So Don't Download This Rom And if you do then don't tell anyone who it's from Play games on your TV Like you know that you should Oh don't download this rom Don't Download this Rom Hey look at that, it's a cool game Gotta get me some Go and find it at a garage sale Like you know that you should Oh, Don't Download This Rom Don't Download This Rom And if you do, don't tell anyone who it's from They'll blow up your GameBoy like Nagasaki, Japan So Don't Download This Rom Don't Download This Rom They'll hang you up just like Saddam! Play it on your TV Like you know that you should Oh, don't download this rom
If you don't understand what this song is about, then read this.
This song is still being written ... and needs more work. Eventually I'm probably going to record it.
When it's done, it will be encoded into a ROM using something like MusicPlayer Advance and will be released for free to the internet ROM scene.
What is the point of doing this?
The point of it is to show what an evil arrogant pack of lies this page is.
