"A Waste of Money"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Another one that I find out someone else has beaten me to the title... but I think you'll find that Malcolm's version is rather different...
A waste of money
Wasting it... most of the time

I'm giving up eBay because
Ev'ry thing that I bought, it was
A waste of money (a waste of money):
Watches that don't tell the time

I bid for what I thought was cheap
The postage cost was rather steep
A waste of money (a waste of money)
Posting cost three hundred dimes

I will not bid
No, I will not bid
I have not got the money
Boo hoo..

I found an auction that was ominous:
Subscription to "eBayers Anonymous"
A waste of money (a waste of money)
Wondering is that a crime?

I will not bid, oh well.. maybe I'll bid
I'll come back (he'll come back)
Back to eBay (back to eBay)
Woo hoo!

Not really one of my fav Beatles tunes, but you did a fine job with it, Phil...5's...

Even though eBay has that proxy bidding system, it's still fun sometimes to snipe at the last second..... ;-)

Very well done, Phil! BTW, great minds think alike! None other than Allan Sherman--my hero-- wrote "A Waste Of Money," a parody of the same song, back in the mid-60s. Very dated by now (he complains that his new car was "two thousand bucks down the drain"), and not one of his best efforts, but certainly worth checking out.

Phil, you put me out of my misery, I have had that title sitting round for a year now, with no further ideas! I shall shelve it forever! 5's!
