YesterDMCA, a DMCA song

Many people have heard Jonathan Watterson's DMCA song, based on the Village People "YMCA" hit. Today, suffering from DMCA immersion, I was inspired to compose my own doggerel, based on the song "Yesterday"

With apologies to Yesterday by John Lennon and Paul McCartney:

a parody by Seth Finkelstein

Algorithms programmed in any way
Now it looks as though there's liabilit-ay
And, it's 'cause of the D-M-C-A

I'm not allowed to speak in C
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh how D-M-C-A makes silence be

How some bits do flow, you can't know,
We couldn't say
I said something wrong
now I'm among, law D-M-C-A-ay-ay-ay

"code" was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
And, it's 'cause of the D-M-C-A
