I would like to note that these lyrics are available on many lyrics websites. For example:

These are only a few examples.

Furthermore, none of these sites have received any legal action. As thus, it is my belief that they (and we) are with the full rights to present the lyrics of the Hives on Wikipedia. - Gavin

Sorry to inform you this, but posting copyrighted lyrics on the web really violates a song writer's copyrights. The copyright holder may or may not sue you. Usually they don't do that to a small 100-hit/day website because they cannot pay the money to justify the costs of hiring a lawyer and sending letters. However, Wikipedia is not a place to take such risks. At most you can quote a few lines (see: fair use). Moreover, Wikipedia is not a lyrics depository. Only really important songs will be covered. For well-written examples, please see: Hey Jude, Stairway to Heaven, Bohemian Rhapsody, You're So Vain and YMCA (song). -- Toytoy 02:51, Nov 21, 2004 (UTC)
