Lyrics

The New Zealand music industry just doesn't have a clue
They have a low (or no) opinion of poor geeks like me and you
What they've got is Guns and Roses and their latest top-10 smash
All they want is to feel powerful and have a grand or two in cash

The New Zealand music industry's just Wattie's selling songs
If they've got exclusive rights then they don't care about the wrongs
A snort of coke in L.A. with the parent company
Makes a little boy quite happy in the music industry

I won't be led astray
I won't be damned
I won't be held in thrall by your multinational hand

The New Zealand music industry gets its product overseas
'Cause it can't believe in quality till it gets U.S. release
And its well-trained radio stations pump out what it wants to hear
The musical equivalent of epidemic diarrhoea

I won't be led astray
I won't be damned
I won't be held in thrall by your multinational hand

The New Zealand music industry pays lipservice to us
But the taste of Kiwi music must be tantamount to pus
'Cause it gets spat out and flushed down someone's million dollar bog
Like some foetus late-aborted 'cause they've got no time for sprogs

I won't be led astray
I won't be damned
I won't be held in thrall by your multinational hand
