The Lyrics

(If I see that same old picture postcard of Queen Elizabeth II on the
site again, let's just say I will not be surprised.)
There's just one hour left until I win that stuffed macaw.
No bids are on that Pocket Fisherman quite yet.
But you avoid a bidding fight
If you surf this time of night
On this world reknowned garage sale on the 'net.

The price is much too high for postcards of Ed Sullivan,
And I'll pass up the antique flatware from Taiwan
But if you promise not to squeal
The lawn flamingos are a steal
I hope that you won't want the ones I'm bidding on.

Sign in, search mode, scroll down
Wouldn't buy that TV set if I were you
Feedback, countdown
On e-Bay.
Yes, sir, high bid wins all
Guess somebody really wants that old kazoo
All's well that ends well
On e-Bay.


Somebody wants to sell their Grandma's costume jewellery
Here are some Tinkertoys and Lincoln Logs dirt cheap
While all the finickly will please
Note the link to Sotheby's
I'll search for ping-pong balls now while the neighbors sleep.

Behold a velvet painting of the US Capitol,
And I just found that vintage game I used to play.
Anyone can look for free,
But if you have a bidding spree
Just keep in mind that if you win you have to pay.

Sign in, search mode, scroll down
Don't pass up the Barbie doll from 'Mel-0-2'
Feedback, countdown
On e-Bay
Yes, sir, high bid wins all
Hope you like the Lava Lamp he sold to you
All's well that ends well
On e-Bay.

Sign in, search mode, scroll down
Would you love to have that first edition 'Clue'?
Feedback, countdown
On e-Bay
Yes, sir, high bid wins all
Something like a hangover when it's all through
All's well that ends well
On e-Bay.

(this parody makes no allusions to actual items or sellers of which I
have become aware on the e-Bay auction site. I reserve the
right to bid on anything from economy reproductions of
Romanov tiaras to 2-for-1 deals on vintage Red Owl Stores, Inc.
items. Thank you. -PK.)
