The Lyrics

I've been waiting for someone to complain that the Babe Ruth baseball glove they bought on eBay wasn't really his, so I could post this as though it were topical. Then after, oh, must have been at least five or six minutes, I decided that it wasn't going to happen so I posted it anyway.
Sometimes I want stuff, go to
That eBay I've got to
Bid away
And then I saw this glove on sale from you
You said the truth
Is that it was Babe Ruth's
And I had to try it
So I bid and bid and I bid to buy it

First bid one on you (bid one)
Then I won from you, but
This ain't his glove, you gibbon
Babe Ruth didn't use pink ribbon
Read my feedback, negative 'cause no
Ain't his glove
Ain't his glove

Know that I've complained to
That eBay and paypal.
co.uk
Do you really want more s**t from me?
To make things right
You need to reimburse my flight
Also what I had to pay
You'll be sorry if you don't pay your way

I bid one from you (bid one)
Then I won from you
This ain't his glove, you gibbon
Sure he didn't use pink ribbon
Take my feedback, negative 'cause no
Ain't his glove
Ain't his glove

Replacement? That?
I don't believe that it's his bat
My feedback says you hurt me so
So you'd better pay me what you owe
Ain't his glove, ain't his glove
Banned from eBay, ain't his glove
Banned from eBay, ain't his glove
Ain't his glove
(repeat ad nauseam to fade)

"Tainted Glove"? My first thought was "O.J. Simpson." My second thought was "Michael Jackson." My third thought was "somebody on the Mets." But this works too.

And some people have been looking in a pond somewhere for a piano that The Babe supposedly threw in ... yeah, and monkeys will fly out of The Wicked Witch of The West's butt ... wait a minute ...
