And now, the end is near;
And so I face my final auction.
My friend, I'll say it clear,
I've sold my last; it's done without a caution.

Ive packed a box that's full.
Ive traveled each and ev'ry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I'm done with eBay.

Regrets, do they have a few?
If so, then too too few to mention.
They always do what they have to do
And see it through without distinction.

They planned each careful hike;
E'vry way to cause me dismay,
But more, much more than this,
I'm done with eBay.

Yes, there were times, when I paid too much
I bid too high the price of such and such.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I bid it up, they sent it out.
I knew my likes and I faced the hikes;
I'm done with eBay.

I've bid, Ive sold and cried.
I've had my fill; my share of fee hikes.
And now, as bids subside,
I find it all so amazing.

To think I did all that;
Through all those years and in the best way,
No, oh no not me,
No more from me, eBay.

What is our eBay, what have they got?
If not their sellers, then they have naught.
To do the things they truly did;
It's unbelievable, I do not kid.
The record shows, sellers took the blows -
And now they're not on eBay!

You are very inspirational and I am very impressed!

Do you mind if your song is posted elsewhere,other forums, of course giving you the credit?


Hi Sandy,

Thanks so much for your kind post and I'm glad you like my re-wording of a famous song Smile

It's kinda sad that I had to do it, as I've been with eBay for over seven years...but I think the site has now gone one step too far for me. It's no longer fun, like it used to be when I first started. eBay has made it hard for its sellers these days, with its constant fee hikes and now its upcoming changes to feedback.

(Steps off soapbox...)Yes, please use the song. I feel honored that you would think it good enough to post elsewhere Smile Just let me know where, as I'd love to see it "in print" somewhere else Wink

Take care,

Good one Just Bon...I thought I'd heard them all.

This is a new one.

You're items are still top notch.

Best of Luck,

Hi Donna,

After I'd rewritten it, I suddenly remembered that eBay had used the song in one of its TV promotions, some time ago. And there was me thinking I was original lol!

(Thanks for the kind words about my items! Smile )
