APED: "corporate acquisition"

Disney's buying Marvel and Starbucks bought New York,
and Microsoft bought Redmond long ago,
the Pirate Bay bought a pirate ship,
bought some cannons to equip,
stole Windows, Marvel, then New York, and the whole friggin' show.

It's corporate acquisition,
buy another company,
or maybe buy a town,
it's corporate acquisition,
the sweetest thing that ever did go down.

Columbia bought Tri-Star,
or were bought by and by,
And some folks buy and sell themselves
which I admit does sound quite swell;
I'd sell out in a minute if someone would only buy.

It's corporate acquisition,
buy out your competitor
and then buy out yourself
it's corporate acquisition,
making keeping track of who owns who a real damn living hell.
