Billy Joel Song Competition

One Demand will not at this time have a Billy Joel song competition because I have not been able to gain permission to use the Billy Joel song "You may be right" for the competition. The plan was to allow a person or band to record and post the song with the new lyrics listed below and allow participants in One Demand to vote on which version they like the most. This would be a competition, not a contest because there is no prize.

If you want this competition to happen please inform Billy Joel through a petition or social media. The new lyrics below are only provided because if I am inviting you to influence Billy Joel on this issue then you have the right to know what it is you are supporting.

DO NOT record or perform this song with the new lyrics until we receive permission. It could violate copyright law and if Billy Joel is understanding enough to forgive the posting of the new lyrics below, individuals recording or performing these lyrics could be beyond anyone's capability to forgive and would not be helpful in our efforts to gain permission to use the song.

New lyrics:
Vote for change and then you wait, well now you can retaliate,
let them know you're fed up with their game.
First the one side lets you down, so you turn the seat around,
then the other side does just more of the same.
You've been stranded in the bullshit zone, no longer have to feel alone,
the time is now to break free of your chains.
Yes you only have to try, prove democracy alive,
even though at first this plan might seem insane.
You may be right, I may be crazy,
but it just may be a lunatic you're looking for.
Come join the fight, no ifs or maybes,
you may be wrong for all I know but you may be right.

Remember how I found you there, alone in your electric chair,
faced with just a choice of bad or worse.
You were looking for a way, that you could have a say,
and change the system that's become perverse.
Think of all the years you tried to, find someone to satisfy you,
I might be as crazy as you say.
If I'm crazy then it's true, that it's all because of you,
and you wouldn't want me any other way.
You may be right, I may be crazy,
but it just may be a lunatic you're looking for.
Come join the fight, no ifs or maybes,
You may be wrong for all I know but you may be right.
