The Lyrics

what a wonderful site....
Chorus: On the nights I haven’t scored
The cheapest fun I can afford
Is to laugh at all these ads and message boards
Things are crazy on Craigslist
Man, have you been on Craigslist?
No? Then you should check out Craigslist

Verse: Check out this futon
Cheap as a Wal-Mart sale with a coupon
They’ll deliver it straight to me from Tuscon
But all these pic showin’ tears, I better move on
I see crystal that has obviously been glued
I see Trojans are for sale that “hardly been used”
Ayo, I’m seeing some things that got me rolling
Ayo, you gave the pitch, but you ain’t sold me
And now I’m seeing ads from girls that wanna hold me
Say they want a little pork, but not bologna
You gotta a nude pic that you can show me?
Then I got sick, I learned that she’s phony

Chorus: Bought a couch, that’s worn and old
The jankest sofa ever sold
Someone lied, the pictures hide the spots of mold
Got bamboozled on Craigslist
How could I trust you, Craigslist?
Wow! The things you find on Craigslist

Verse 2: They tryna be so Kevin Trudeau
It’s that infomercial sodomy that I’m not for
I’m divided these prices so low
Queen-size bunks $350? Like whoa
Now all I see are jobs I’m great for
Really I don’t know, apply or no?
Make some cash, for trying products
And I already know how those things go
I fin’lly make it out for a Starbucks frap
I see this pretty girl, in a Cardinals cap
I want to know your name, but didn’t ask
I’ll never find nobody better than that

Chorus: Here online, I read these posts
Of missed connection days ago
Lovers lost along the road, ain’t lost their hope
Cuz we put it on Craigslist
Could find true love on Craigslist
No, you’re out of luck on Craigslist

Bridge: Post and post and post and post
Make sure my post won’t get lost
Gotta keep my thread in view
So there can be me and you
I sit here praying you will see
I see another guy like me
Post an ad identic’lly
And now we gon’ be enemies!
I know that possibly
I’ll never see your thong
To keep me warm tonight
Visit another site
And that’s not right

Chorus: Late at night, if you are bored
The coolest website to explore
It has all you’re looking for except for porn
No nude women on Craigslist
There should be porn on Craigslist
Yo! Why’s there no porn on Craigslist

Well... I've bumped into too many naked pictures of people on Craigslist that there pretty much is porn on Craigslist. Of course I had to have my eyes scrubbed directly afterwards. This was a pretty fun parody and I like this almost as much as Weird Al's "Craigslist" song lol You and Al keep sharing a lot of ideas but it worked out well for you last time! lol

It's not worth it to expose yourself to Craigslist. Too dangerous. Too many creepy people.

Want Craigslist in an eggshell? Check out this awesome, perfectly paced parody. 555! :)

This was brilliant, on a par with Weird Al's samenamed tribute....but,,,man, it's only just my opinion, so I am sorry... it completely lost steam for me at the bridge.

Thanks again for your opinion Aggie, which in the end is just that- a personal opinion. As a critic you carry no weight around here even though you think so. And even as good as this parody is, Blaydeman is no Weird Al. If he was, he wouldn't be on this site!!! No insult to you B-Man. Aimed at Aggie.

@Frankly, I don't write commentary for my kicks or yours, and as a matter of fact, this particular comment was mandated by our own contest encouraging commentary. There are a hell of a lot of other things happening in the Comments space of this website worth b****ing about.
The Observer - July 27, 2015 - Report this comment
Methinks the Frank doth protest too much. Says more about Frank's opinions about Blaydeman than it does about Aggie. Ah, but that's the Internet for ya.
Frankly Speaking - July 27, 2015 - Report this comment
Absolutely not! I stated that Blaydeman's parody was good (which most of his are). I even rayed him 555 for this topic. So don't try to redirect, Aggie. All you do is 5 your buddies and love to see your name in the Comments section. When you can't find current parodies to praise, you dig up old ones written by the same parodists. Why don't you fix your own parodies that usually get mediocre ratings instead of blabbing all the time?

I rest my case. Have a nice life.
Callmelennie - July 28, 2015 - Report this comment
Let me pick up your case for a moment, AG. Note how ludicrous FS's position truly is. He's saying that the opinion a guy who has spent 12 years at Amiright and has posted 587 parodies carries no weight with respect to PARODIES WRITTEN AT AMIRIGHT!! ........ In the meantime, the opinion of a guy coming out of nowhere, who sock-puppets his identity and who carries out a completely unfounded personal attack on Agrimorfee ..... well, that opinion might as well be chiseled on a stone tablet ...... Hilarious.

We don't need comments from riff-raff!
bobpiecheese - July 28, 2015 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Obviously the reason why there's no porn on Craigslist is because there's porn friggin' everywhere else. Including on Craigslist, if Matthias is to be believed. As my entire experience with Craigslist comes from Weird Al I can't really comment on how accurate a portrayal of Craigslist this is, but based on said Weird Al song this was spot-on. Pacing was spot-on, too. 555 creepy weirdos!

One can always expect an excitement coming out of Craigslist...and the comments section.
Syncronos - July 28, 2015 - Report this comment
But think about it...would you really want porn on craigslist? No telling what you'd get. Awesome work, though it sleeves me out about that couch
Abbott Skelding - July 28, 2015 - Report this comment
Well done! Dare I say, BETTER than Al's version! Many good lines and was really funny throughout. 555 posts
