The Ascap Song
(J.O. Thereditor)

Who controls the music from "c-sharp" to shining "c"?
        A-S-C-
        A & P
        A-S-C-A-P!
Who's got Woody Guthrie spinning in the cemet'ry?
        A-S-C-
        A & P
        A-S-C-A-P!
Pay it up! (shout: "Pay it up!")
Pay it up! (shout: "Pay it up!")
Forever let 'em get a royalty! (shout: "Tee!  Hee!  Hee!")
They got all the lawyers 'cause they got the dough-re-mi.
        A-S-C-
        A & P
        A-S-C-A-P!

So be sure to pay your dues, by Royalty Decree,
        A-S-C- (etc.)
So They can send more lobbyists to Washington D.C.
        A-S-C- (etc.)
As - Cap! (Duck solo: "BMI!")
As - Cap! (Duck solo: "BMI!")
You never get to sing without a fee! (big bass solo shout: "Fie! Foe! Fum!")
(slower:)
 Now it's time to say goodbye to all our revelry.
(real slow:)
        A  -  S  -  C  - - -
        (spoken solo:)  "See you in court!"
        A  -  and  -  P  - - -
        (spoken solo)  "And please pay promptly"
(Full orcestration, five part harmony, and all kinds of things:)
A - - - S - - - C - - - A - - - P - - - !
note: ASCAP may never get over the bad press incurred when it tried to
  collect royalties from the Girl Scouts. RG
