Better Late Than Never: Lawyers – Gangnam Style

Yesterday University of Southampton law student Tommy Chuang released 'Lawyer Style' – as far as we're aware the first legal profession-themed Gangnam Style parody...

A transcript of the lyrics, should you be interested, is below.

Anyway, this is "Lawyer Style".

Oh yeah, "University of Southampton '13 represent" and all that. Blah blah blah.

Original music and lyrics by PSY

Parody lyrics by Tommy Chuang

Besmirch my good name and I may just sue you for libel
Using this old book of statutes which is kinda like my bible
I'd say "see you in court" but I think you'd prefer to settle
Save yourself the costs of trial.

I'm wearing Versace
Senior partner at my firm and earning equitay
Strutting through the Supreme Court high fiving Baroness Hale
Another late night at the office eating takeaway
Eating takeaway

Do you seek damages or an injunction?
I'll take both. Hey! Yes I'll take both. Hey!
Do you seek damages or an injunction?
I'll take both. Hey! Yes I'll take both. Hey!
Look at all this money you will have to pay!

Rolling lawyer style
Lawyer style
Roll, roll, roll roll, rolling lawyer style
Lawyer style
Roll, roll, roll roll, rolling lawyer style

Thaaaaaaanks for the money
Roll, roll, roll roll, rolling lawyer style
Thaaaaaaanks for the money
Roll, roll, roll roll tha tha tha tha tha thanks

Impressing my clients, steamrolling negotiations
Drafting the perfect contract, no room for ambiguation
When the deal falls through I take it to arbitration
If that fails sue for restitution.

I'm wearing Versace
Senior partner at my firm and earning equitay
Strutting through the Supreme Court high fiving Baroness Hale
Another late night at the office eating takeaway
Eating takeaway

Do you seek damages or an injunction?
I'll take both. Hey! Yes I'll take both. Hey!
Do you seek damages or an injunction?
I'll take both. Hey! Yes I'll take both. Hey!
Look at all this money you will have to pay!

Rolling lawyer style
Lawyer style
Roll, roll, roll roll, rolling lawyer style
Lawyer style
Roll, roll, roll roll, rolling lawyer style

Thaaaaaaanks for the money
Roll, roll, roll roll, rolling lawyer style
Thaaaaaaanks for the money
Roll, roll, roll roll tha tha tha tha tha thanks

I'm not free
Although I'd like to be
I can win you all your cases if you pay my fees
I'm not free
Although I'd like to be
I can win you all your cases if you pay my fees
YOU KNOW WHAT IM SAYING?

Rolling lawyer style
Tha tha tha tha tha tha
Thaaaaaaanks for the money
Roll, roll, roll roll, rolling lawyer style
Thaaaaaaanks for the money
Roll, roll, roll roll tha tha tha tha tha tha
Rolling lawyer style

    Well, he comes across, intentionally or otherwise, as the very last type of lawyer I would ever wish to refer a client to. Law is not, and has never been about becoming rich. If he wants to become rich, he ought to have studied or worked to become a tycoon, not a legal practitioner.
