The Lyrics

Live While You Are Buying"
(An Ebay Tribute)

She said I was in my early 40's,
With a lot of web before,
And a site came up that stopped me on a dime.
I spent most of the next days, searching this digital maze,
Looking at the items and wastin' my free time.
I thought when it sank in, that this might really be a real sin.
Then it hits ya, when you realize it's already dawn.
Girl, whatcha bid on.
And she says,

(Chorus)
I went purse buyin',
I went with my small bid a risin',
I bought three or four different kinds of denim Blue Pants Suits.
And I kept biddin',
And I kept winnin',
And I finally bought what I'd been denying,
And she said someday I hope you get the chance,
To live while you are buying.

She said I finally told my husband,
Why the computer's buzzing.
And I found a friend an ebay junkie would love to have.
And all the sudden biddin' online,
Wasn't such a horrible crime.
And I bought ten things that night I lost my job.
Well I finally got on PayPal,
And I cried a good long hard yell at the account,
Wishing for my money again.
And then,

(Chorus)

Like what tomorrow will bring and you've got eternity,
To think about who will get this crap,
What could you do with that, who would
Want this crap, what would I do with it.

Purse buyin',
I went with my small bid a risin',
I bought three or four different kinds of denim Blue Pants Suits.
And I kept biddin',
And I kept winnin',
And I watched the red shoe's price rise while cryin',
And she said someday I hope you get the chance,
To live like you were buyin',

To live like you were buyin',
To live like you were buyin',
To live like you were buyin',
To live like you were buyin',
