The Lyrics

Surfin' on the internet,
From the sun up till that old sun sets
Buyin' some real strange things,
Ain't surprisin' what the mailman brings

(Yeah) I Been Biddin' On The Stock At Ebay,
Postin' my price every day
oo, Just Biddin' On The Stock At Ebay,
Blowin' cash

(Yeah) Bought me a barn in Georgia,
A tractor and a stack a' hay
That may not sound so unusual,
But I'm livin' in downtown L.A.

Yeah, Biddin' On The Stock At Ebay,
Postin' my price every day
oo, Just Biddin' On The Stock At Ebay,
Wastin' cash

Bought me a boa constrictor,
A monkey, and some tree house plans
A brand new ultra lite aircraft,
And some framed sand, loaded with ants,

Yeah, I'm Biddin' On The Stock At Ebay,
Winnin' a bid everyday,
Just Biddin' On The Stock At Ebay,
Oops, outa cash!

"I'm livin' in downtown L.A." just cracked me up. You've been bidding against my sister, who has a serious e-bay habit. Very good parody. High 5's

AFW, fine song, funny and clever but it looks like somebody else on the site beat you to it. I'm still fiving it.

Great job! I like how the parody title sounds similar to that of the original; it works very well. I don't visit Ebay, but the parody was really good! 5-5-5 for you. :)

Positive rating from me!

Thanks Jeff, guy, Meriadoc, Ash, Serafina, and Steven... ...Guy, You mean just the same song, or different song, same theme, or what is the name....and who did it?

"Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" Based on the performance by Otis Redding
"Bidding on the Schlock on Ebay" Parody by Ken Willmott

I was going to do the same thing a while back and the idea seemed familiar. I Googled for it and found it on amiright. Ever since we lost our onsite search capability, it has been difficult to tell if something has already been done. I just wanted to tell you about it before someone got in your face about it. My stuff gets jacked all the time. Unless it's an all out plagiarism I pay it no mind. Apparently I got called for my Bel-Arabs song today because SNL did some kind of skit on this theme about 25 years ago. This person didn't have the common courtesy to leave their real screen name. Don't sweat it. Your song was great. I loved it.

Hehe...Like it! 5's

Well, JB got my "bid three 5's" line, but that's what you can expect when you have an excellent parody about e-bay posted and the voter can't get around to looking at stuff until after work...Great job, AFW...
Tim Mayfield - November 16, 2004 - Report this comment
AFW, even if someone did the same idea before, yours is unique. Loved yours better than theirs anyway.
AFW - November 16, 2004 - Report this comment
I guess I should have checked the web...sometimes I do...use google...Well, my apologies to Ken..if he reads this...but I guess, like they say. Parody minds think alike...Thanks again, for the info, Guy...and your vote of support...But their is a difference.."Schlock". and "Stock".His version is Hebrew...mine is Gentile Thanks also, to Adagio, Paul, and Tim
