The Lyrics

I've decided for my convenience to arrange the three characters' songs as stand-alone parodies, although they are sung together in the film. Once upon a time, before they succumbed to political correctness, eBay allowed people to offer their souls for sale on the auction site. I'm looking for something a bit more, eh "tangible".
I don't while away the hours
Injecting sap from flowers*
Or snorting some cocaine
I get stupid without drinking
I'm incapable of thinking
'cause I haven't got a brain

How my wallet's getting fatter
Though my intellect's in tatters
I simply can't explain
But I would pay a million dollars
I don't care if eBay hollers
If I could only buy a brain

Why, oh why, can't I find someone who'll sell
Lot's of folks aren't using theirs
And my head's an empty shell

Someone offered me a loaner
From, he says, a "willing" donor
Seeking monetary gain
But the way I hear 'em tell it
It's against the law to sell it
So I cannot buy a brain
* ("Poppies! Poppies will put them to sleep").
