Hush, Dr. Felten, don't you cry.
They say you've broken SDMI.
All my trials, soon be over.

You got the files, broke the marking scheme.
A research challenge, so it would seem.
All my trials...

A letter came from the RIA,
"can't publish that," the lawyers say.
All my trials...

The DMCA is chilly and cold,
and those that challenge it must be mighty bold.
All my trials...

If music were a thing that only money could buy,
then the rich would listen, and the poor would cry.
All my trials...

Hush Dr. Felten...
