The Lyrics

domaining - ungrateful deada spoof on the domain name resellers industry, specifically the now-defunct afternic forums
Domaining - got my chips cashed in,
ooh domaining - like the doodah man,
together - more or less in line,
just keep dom-ain-ing o-o-on ...

Websites of neon and flashing marquees on domain street
Chicago, New York, Detroit it's all on the same street
your typical gambler involved in a typical daydream
hang it up - see what tomorrow brings ...

Dallas - got a soft machine
Houston - too close to New Orleans
New - York - oh! - the wtc
... but it just won't let you be-e

Most of the cats that you meet on the street speak of great sales
Most of the time they're sitting and crying at home
One of these days they know they gotta get going
off of this site - like everyone else - and get stoned .....

ooh domaining -
like the doodah man
once told me - you gotta play your hand
sometimes - the names aren't worth a di-me
and so you gotta lay 'em do-o-wn ...

Sometimes the light's all shining on me
other times I can barely see
lately it occurs to me
what a long strange trip it's been ...

What in the world ever became of Maine James?
he lost his sparkle, you know he isn't the same
living on webs, affiliate sites and the back boards
all a friend can say is - ain't it a shame

Domaining - it's hard work you know -
been thinking - got to mellow slow
takes time, you pick a name to go
and just keep domaining on ...

Sittin' and starin' out of the bedroom window
got a tip they're gonna kick the door in again
i'd like to get some sleep before I unravel
but if you've got Mastercard - i guess you'd better come in ...

Busted - down on loser's street
set up - like a bowling pin
knocked down - it gets to wearing thin -
but it just won't let me be-e-ee...

You're sick of hanging round, you'd like to travel
get tired of hustling - you'd settle for half a crown
I guess they can't revoke your soul for trying
get out of the door, light out and look all around

Sometimes the light's all shining on me
other times I can barely see
lately it occurs to me
what a long ... strange trip it's been ...

Domaining - now I'm going home
wo-wo baby - where there is no phone
back home - sit down and patch my bones
and get back dom-ain-ing o-o-on!
