["Compact Disc"]

      That thing you're listening to is called a compact disc
                    D(pm)                                A(pm)
It's a method of conveying sound, it's square outside, inside it's round
      That thing you're listening to is a digitally accurate
               D(pm)                          A(pm)
Reading of the numbers that make up different sounds in fact
   It's the most technologically advanced
      F#           D
Sound reproduction known to man
   A                                E (w/ slides up from D#)
At least in the commercially viable sense
      That thing you're listening to is called a compact disc
                    D(pm)                   A(pm)
Every subtle nuance of a tune is made available to you
      That thing you're listening to is a high-tech dream come true
                          D(pm)                                   A(pm)
Technically it works with laser beams yet you can learn to use it easily
E                                            F#
  Throw your scratched, dusty records in the trash
             D               A
It's time to move out of the past
                       E (w/ slides up from D#)
In the profit analysis sense


   That thing you're listening to is called a waste of time
                D                             A
An inferior and overpriced product of an underactive mind
   That thing you're listening to is a multi-flawed industry scam
Devoid of any thought or heart at all
It's the antithesis of rock and roll
  But no one cares that a record sounds better
          F#                        D                      A
Cause you just can't buy them so it just doesn't matter at all
                  E (w/ slides up from D#)
And that's common sense
