The Lyrics

Ahhhh... The Internet back years ago if you found somebody who you thought was extremely handsome, beautiful, fine, hot or just a little bit cute and you weren't able to talk to them you missed out on talking to them for life but today thanks to Craigslist you can write a personal ad directed towards one indivisual person who most likely if they're that attractive doesn't need to go on Craigslist looking for people to hook up with in the first place or even if they are as big a loser as you why in their right mind would they think anybody is looking at them and so don't bother wasting their time searching through these ads. So I felt that I should do a tribute to the most worthless peice of Internet techology of all time.
(You don’t know me…)
(You don’t know me…)

I saw you at the beach
I wore my winter coat
Attempted words of speech
But had a scratchy throat
I am under your spell
And long to sense your smell
But you don’t know me
(No, You don’t know me)

I drool as I stare and fawn
That speedo was so tight
A tattoo on your right hip
Of the logo from “Sprite”
Your spandex-clad rear end
Should soon be in my bed
But you don’t know me
(No, You don’t know me)

------------------------------------------------------------------

Never thought love was true till I saw you buying gloves
And how those snowflakes just stuck to you
I was the guy out in the car nearby
You glanced at me (Felt something too?)
(Something too?)

Then I drove down the street
Got home and raced online
So now I hope and pray
You use this Craigslist site
And that you’re egotistical
To think that the Earth is full
Of lame guys who want you

---------------------------------------------

(On Craigslist it’s true we combine those missed love)
(With these shy geeks who never talked to you)

You’re buying pie here in the grocery line
Romance within my mind ensued
(Mind ensued)
I’m the man in the other lane
Who’s giving you the eye
Flirt with the guy who bags
He’s such a lucky guy!
Online using my iPhone
This little thing I wrote
Instead of speaking
(You don’t know me, You don’t know me)

Great combination of RayC & CraigsList ! Hilarious, SquireMatthias !

(Artistry) I had the same minor problem with your video as I did with TCOP. The performance didn't include the backup singers, so the important couplet mentioning Craigslist was missing and the third verse took forever to come around. Clever idea but without your title and those two lines, the joke is lost. But again, I got the gist of it. This is definitely a challenging round.

(Artistry) I almost missed this parody, but then I saw your ad for it on Craigslist. Wonderful idea executed in that distinctive Matthias style!

(Artistry) I've never heard of Craigslist outside of Weird Al's recent song about it, so I was pretty lost here. Um...that's all I got.

Seemed a tad bit on the random side buddy, good idea, and decent execution, though not quite as strong as I'm used to from you. . .5s, because it was still good. . .
