From: GUEST,Sue Trainor

Awhile back, I promised I'd have a new song for Mudcat parody fans. Finally got it all done -- As of today, "eBay-o" is available to be downloaded (mp3 format) at the Hot Soup website, . If you do download it, please send a note through the website or to me directly; I'll keep track and pay royalties to the "Day-O" folks.

Here are the lyrics, followed by the credits (please include the credits if you print out the words). Hope the song gives you a giggle!

  Bay-o, eBay-ay-ay-o 
EBay come, now we shop online
Bay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay-ay-o,
EBay come, now we shop online
I bid in the auctions all night long 
EBay come, now we shop online
I'm a winner til the Visa bill come
EBay come, now we shop online
Sell your pajamas, now sell your bunk
EBay come, now we shop online
That man's winnings are this girl's junk
EBay come, now we shop online
Come, Mr. Tallyman, tally up me auction
EBay come, now we shop online
Come, Mr. Tallyman, tally up me auction
EBay come, now we shop online
Bid six bucks, seven bucks, eight bucks more
Sniper come, now me wan go high
Ten bucks, twelve bucks, twenty bucks more
EBay come, now we shop online
Bay, eBay-ay-ay-o
EBay come, now we shop online
Bay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay-ay-o,
EBay come, now we shop online
Percussion break (16 beats)
A beautiful flight to Club Havana
EBay come, now we shop online
Temptation is eBay's deadly manna
EBay come, now we shop online
Come, Mr. Tallyman, tally up me auction
EBay come, now we shop online
Come, Mr. Tallyman, tally up me auction
EBay come, now we shop online
Bid sixty bucks, eighty bucks, a hundred bucks more
EBay come, now we shop online
Postman bring it right to your door
EBay come, now we shop online
Bay, eBay-ay-ay-o
EBay come, now we shop online
Bay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay, eBay-ay-ay-o,
EBay come, now we shop online

I had the delight of seeing Sue at last weekend's NERFA conference---and playing this piece on the air last Sunday on Traditions (WFDU.fm). Now that I have stopped laughing I can write this.
