Bellamy Brothers: Britney Spears Ripped Off Our Song!

1/11/2011 4:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It sure sounded familiar when Britney Spears released it, but The Bellamy Brothers now claim Britney blatantly ripped off their song, "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me."

Britney's song -- which is now #1 on iTunes -- is titled "Hold It Against Me."

David Bellamy says, "Howard and I have no personal beef with Britney. She's a talented gal. But professionally, well, in all honesty, we feel completely ripped off. Where's the originality?"

The Bellamy Bros are not taking legal action, but they're pissed off.

Somebody at TMZ should start taking pictures of Janet Montgomery - she is in the Thirty Mile Zone. Also get a vehicle for her fast. I'm thinking a main role in Mission Impossible or maybe the next Tomb Raider babe!

Bellamy must be a synonym for idiot.

The melody is nowhere near their song, and the lyric is an old joke line.

C'mon, Harvey, report real celeb news, not this crock is sh!#.

I'm sorry, but this is a ridiculous claim. just because SOME of the words in ONE LINE of the song are SIMILAR to the Bellamy Brothers song, it is not even close to their version. Get over it Brothers, Brit is NOT COPYING your dumb song.

Honestly? this is like the Soulja *** **** all over again. Its a line. Its not even used in the same context. Lame hillbillies.

PS...You practically gave people the Britney song for free by giving the sample.
