The Lyrics

In "The Official Ebay Guide", there is a chapter entitled Takin' Care Of Bidness. I got the idea from there. Maybe eBay could use this as their theme song....
You get up in the morning
To a been outbid warning
Closes at 8:15 and it's 7:30
It's a leather motorcycle glove
The price is high thereof
And you were just outbid by mz_pippy
You wanna' snipe it by a dime
Cause it's the first one that you could find
You win it for more than you can pay
The other guy, he gets annoyed
Negative feedback is deployed
If you had a job, you might be able to pay
But you'll be...
Taking care of bidness on eBay
Glued to your computer through the day
A dial-up connection takes to much time
Simply can't afford it or...broadband you'd buy
Checkout
It's easy as fishin'
Anyone can be an ebaysian
You can find an old bed with some pillows
There's a second-hand guitar
And some things that are bizarre
As well as barfbags and bellows
People see you having fun
You handle is bidder_number1
Tell them that they best shut up when you're bidding
It's a shame that the warranty is void
Once the packaging is destroyed
You love to work at nothing all day
Well, you're still...
Taking care of bidness on eBay
Glued to your computer through the day
A dial-up connection takes to much time
Simply can't afford it or...broadband you'd buy
Take good care of your bidness
When you're away, every day whoo!
You get up in the morning
To a been outbid warning
Closes at 8:15 and it's 7:30
It's a leather motorcycle glove
The price is high thereof
And you were just outbid by mz_pIpy
You wanna' snipe it by a dime
Cause it's the first one that you could find
You win it for more than you can pay
The other guy he gets annoyed
Negative feedback is deployed
If you had a job, you might be able to pay
And you'll be...
Taking care of bidness on eBay
Glued to your computer through the day
A dial-up connection takes to much time
Simply can't afford it or...broadband you'd buy
Taking care of bidness
Taking care of bidness
Taking care of bidness
Taking care of bidness
Taking care of bidness...

Not bad at all, altho' you could have used the repeat verses to catalogue more odd items.

Good one Aaron. I'm an eBayer myself.
