The Lyrics

I went online looking for such a deal
I bought a dame, I bought a dame
Such a bargain there, she was such a steal
I bought a dame, I bought a dame
And I'll marry her quickly once her ship arrives
And I'm sure that we'll share our happy lives
Comin' on in from Thailand
Got her online from Thailand
Told me there is a wife for every guy

Got the papers right here I must sign
I bought a gal, I bought a gal
Soon she'll be here and I will make her mine
I bought a gal, I bought a gal
And I'll marry her quickly when her ship comes through
Her first words in English will be “I do”
Comin' on in from Thailand
Got her online from Thailand
Age and her weight I hope they did not lie

Now my bride has come to me
What a fool I am when my eyes do see
I bought a freak, I bought a freak
Should have read the small print there's no return
I bought a freak, I bought a freak
She is already pregnant and she's hard to view
Now I'm on the highway goin' 82
Poorer but now I'm wising
That was false advertising
When you see those ads I say pass them by

I prefer the Russian or former Soviet bloc MOB's myself, but this was good. Creative, original idea.
