Negativland - Gimme The Mermaid Lyrics

Gimme The Mermaid

[Man 1]
We've been talking about whenever it is convenient for you. I'm talking about over breath in this law

[Man 2]
Hello, Dead Dog Records

[Man 3]
Pick up some tapes, listen to the caught recording

[Man 2]
We caught recording

[Man 3]
The one you're making as we speak!

[Man 2]
Hold on a minute. We got you guys listening to everything

[Man 3]
The bugs are there for your protection

[Man 2]
I know

[Lawyer]
You either have no ability to use this for any purpose whatsoever, either for free, or for money. You wanna test me in the court? If we did not buy ownership, we bought exclusivity and if you wanna try and check me out in and you go ahead and try and do something with it and I'm gonna sue your ass. You can never use it without our permission

[Ariel]
Maybe he's right

[Lawyer]
I sent you the check, I own it, or I control it. You can never use it for anything without my permission. And you wanna challenge me, we'll go to court tomorrow and I'll prove you wrong. And you wanna find out, let's go

[Ariel]
Maybe he's right

[Lawyer]
I'm telling you, the facts of law and the facts of reality. The reality is that I gave you money, I own it or I control it. You wanna try and do something with it, I'm gonna sue you. You never use it for any purpose again or I will sue you

[Ariel]
Maybe he's right

[Woman]
I own the copyright!

[Lawyer]
Fuckin' lawyer! Go get a lawyer right now, let's have it out! I'm not gonna piss around with you about this. You cannot use it without my permission, for anything, forever. Got it? You a lawyer, 'cause you gonna need one

[Ariel]
Maybe he's right. Maybe there is something the matter with me

[Lawyer]
I'm gonna sue your ass

[Ariel]
I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad

[Lawyer]
You wanna test me in the court?

[Ariel]
Look at this stuff

[Lawyer]
I own it

[Ariel]
Isn't it neat?

[Lawyer]
Or I control it

[Ariel]
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?

[Lawyer]
You wanna find out?

[Ariel]
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl

[Lawyer]
Lets go

[Ariel]
The girl who has

[Lawyer]
Lets go

[Ariel]
Everything?

[Lawyer]
You can never use it without our permission

[Ariel]
Look at this trove

[Lawyer]
I own it

[Ariel]
Treasures untold

[Lawyer]
Or I control it

[Ariel]
How many wonders can one cavern hold?

[Lawyer]
I'm telling you

[Ariel]
Looking around here you think

[Lawyer]
I own it, or I control it

[Ariel]
Sure, she's got everything

[Lawyer]
You can't use it!

[Ariel]
I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty

[Lawyer]
If you wanna challenge me

[Ariel]
I've got whozits and whatzits galore

[Lawyer]
I'm gonna sue your ass

[Ariel]
You want thingamabobs?

[Lawyer]
Get a fucking lawyer!

[Ariel]
I've got twenty!
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more

[Lawyer]
You can't use it without our permission, for anything, forever

[Small voice]
I'm gonna be copied, I'm gonna be copied!

[Lawyer]
Get a lawyer right now, we'll have a bout

[Vocals]
Gimme gimme gimme

[Lawyer]
I'm not...

[Vocals]
I need some more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don't ask what for

[Lawyer]
Piss around you about this

[Vocals]
Gimme gimme gimme
I need some more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don't ask what for
(repeats)
