The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

I bought this from an online shop
Was bidding like a man insane
Then when it arrived it was crud
And eBay was to blame

They've got shit
Yeah, baby, they've got shit

Well,
I'm your eBay
Slimy liar
Who whores the buyers

I'm your eBay
You're my buyer
My whore on fire

(instrumental break)

Their weapons are their truthful lies
Taking every sap's cash
Middle-men shark-like they are
Auction other fools' trash

WOW!

They sell shit
Yeah, baby, they sell shit

Well,
I'm your eBay
I'm your liar
I'm your desire

I'm your eBay
You're my buyer
My whore on fire

(instrumental break)

They've got shit
Yeah, baby, they've got shit

Well,
I'm your eBay
You're my buyer
My whore on fire

I'm your eBay
You're my buyer
I'm your desire

(instrumental ending)

I am not ashamed to admit that I am a total ebay addict. There are some major scams running, that's true...but major dealage can be had, as well...great parody, btw...5s!

Great parody Johnny!!! I am quite proud of my rep as an ebay seller. Where else in the world can you buy used underwear and a Jesus action figure with a kung fu grip? (seriously seen both of these listed before) Bid up this parody in increments of 5-5-5!

Thanks, everybody!

Adagio: Not that I know of, I'm just basing this parody's angst on some negative feedback some buyers have posted on eBay from time to time, that's all.

Arwen: I used eBay a lot a few years ago .... I've got nothing against it per se, but it's always Caveat Emptor.

Cookie-man: I recently purchased both a Jesus action-figure AND a Sigmund Freud action-figure from a gift shop in North Carolina!

JB: Really? Can it get worse than THIS? Yikes!!

Rod: Glad you liked the chorus!

Ashkicksass: Nothing that pissed me off, thank goodness, all my eBay experiences have been good ones, but I have read some really nasty complaints from other, less-fortunate buyers.

TJC: I started posting on Amiright on September 8, 2003 ..... it hasn't even been a full year yet ..... guess I had a lot of crap to dump out of my silly brain!

Jack: That was my intent all along!

alvin: AT "KRAGEN", WE SELL ONLY KLINGON AUTO PARTS --- WITH HONOR!
