Dedicated to the News of the World (and newspaper fans)

Old people tell me
That newspapers are good
Have investigative reporters
Tell news like they should
And when it comes to cable news
They say they love ratings
Love adverts and money
It's all for their takings

I've never liked newspapers
But try not to hold grudges
Even when my fingers
Get covered in black smudges
It's a waste of paper
But none the less
Let the old people
Have their written press

So where are they now?
Those people with such conviction
Who were trying to prove
Their precious non-fiction
You said the newspapers were good
Tell news like they should
And the journalists were practically
Your own Robin Hood
