The Lyrics

Actually, I'm a regular here, but I've heard Amway is rather
lawsuit-happy so I'm posting this in even greater anonymity
than usual.
And now, the soap is clear;
It lets you wash flannels and curtains
The price, it may be dear
But SA-8, it works, I'm certain.

My closet, it is full
Of overstock, my upline I paid
Please, mom, buy just one more
I'm selling Amway

Recruits, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I called all whom I knew
They all refused my intervention.

I tried to sell, of course
Training brochures sit in the hallway
My friends would not buy in,
They won't do Amway

They say of fraud Amway's accused
A cult or scam? Some say it's proved
Material to motivate
Will take the cash right off your plate
Certain to fail, a chance you take
Yes that is Amway.

They tried to change their name
Quixtar, Amway said, would sound better
Or "Team of Destiny"
Now I can see, not profit-getters

To think they tried all that;
And may I say ? a somewhat sly way,
Oh no, no more for me,
I'm done with Amway.

They said I must stay, I cannot go
I was brainwashed, the soap's for show
And I heard Forbes said it's not real
My diamond distributor revealed
That if you leave, you are a dweeb
But I've quit Amway!
Here's more about Amway. We parody. You decide.

Great parody about one of America's worst pyramid schemes!

Don't be silly -- if Amway sues, think of the publicity your parodies would get! Hell, if you don't want to claim it, I'll re-submit it under MY own, name and even print my address with it to make it easier for their lawyers to find me. Then you, in turn, can sue ME for plagiarism, and we'd all be on Court TV for about a year! A publicist's dream!

I'd print this out to show to the friend who tried to get me to sell Amway for him years ago, but he's still bitter. The parody rang perfectly true. Fives from me!

Hi Tim, thanks. Amway always says "we're not a pyramid." They also tell everyone they're now selling Quixtar, and that Quixtar's "not Amway." Mark C. Rhodes, III--I believe that's Hicksville, LI? Anyway you have my permission, whoever I am. Ravyn--I did Amway too, back in the early 80s, and sold a lot of soap to my Mother. I was out of it after a month. I found the whole experience to be rather hilarious, but I've seen too many people (a good friend and one of my cousins included) who bought the whole scam and lost lots of money and tested the patience of their friends and relatives.
