Super Snooper

Super Snooper with apologies to Abba’s Super Trouper.  Another response to the phone hacking scandal

Super Snooper spies are gonna find you
On your mobile phone
Now your email’s blown
All your private life is known

Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning, Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. Incidentally, does Bradley Manning put anyone else in mind of that Joni Mitchell song: “Woke up, I was Chelsea Manning”

 

 

 

 

When they’re sick and tired of everything
And there’s nothing to watch on TV
Set a trap, the latest snooper sting
Watch your every move for posterity
(Watch your every move for posterity)
Just imagine all the fun they’ll soon be having
(All the fun they’ll soon be having)
They know about you all right
(And it’s gonna be)
And it’s gonna be so funny
When you get exposed tonight

Tonight the
Super Snooper spies are gonna find you
Trying to have fun
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
They will make you glum
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
Keep you under the State thumb

Tonight the
Super Snooper satellite will find you
Watch just what you do
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
Like they always do
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
The government that’s there for you

Legislation snooping on your friends
How can Cameron be so phoney?
Now the EU wants to make amends
By banning all that baloney
(By banning all that baloney)
No more spying on your girlfriend’s shopping habit
(Girlfriend’s shopping habit)
No more peeking on the sly
(They’ll soon be wiping everything)
But will anything be different?
Just less jokes for Private Eye?

Tonight the
Super Snooper spies are gonna find you
Find out what you’ve done
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
Catch you on the run
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
Put you under the State thumb
Tonight the
Super Snooper satellite will find you
Watch just what you do
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
Like they always do
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
The government that’s there for you

They will be there, whilst you’re alive
To spy on you to make sure we will all survive
And when they seize your mobile phone
Are they contrite
Knowing what they’ve done to you tonight?

Tonight the
Super Snooper charter’s gonna bind you
Record what you’ve done
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
Stop you having fun
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
Trap you under the State thumb

Tonight the
Super Snooper satellite will find you
Watch just what you do
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
Like they always do
(Sup-p-per Snoop-p-per)
The government that’s there for you
