Craig's List is Made for You and Me!

With apologies to Woody Guthrie


Matt was perusing old local listings

Huge Fisher woodstove! His eyes were misting.

I heard him typing with great ambition

Craig’s List was made for you and me!

Chorus

Craig’s List is your list, Craig’s List is my list

Used Kenmore dryers, electric golf carts

Ikea futon, a set of lawn chairs

Craig’s List was made for you and me!


He emailed Gerry, who wrote back shortly

That the stove was still there, and getting dusty.

Did we want it? DID WE WANT IT!!!

Craig’s List was made for you and me!!

Chorus

Craig’s List is your list, Craig’s List is my list

New vendors needed out near Glen Burnie

Property available for a hunting group lease

Craig’s List was made for you and me!


We took the truck down (it’s an F-150)

To downtown Baltimore. Yup, in the city!

We did get lost once, but the stove would call us:

Craig’s List was made for you and me!


Chorus

Craig’s List is your list, Craig’s List is my list

Tea candle holders, asking $15

Bill Jenkins pro stock Camero pictures

Craig’s List was made for you and me!


We met two ladies, they took our money

Two-hundred fifty! This stove’s a honey.

Now…how to load it? This part was funny.

Craig’s List was made for you and me!!


Chorus

Craig’s List is your list, Craig’s List is my list

Crystal bowl with etching, total body pillows,

1977 Gottlieb Vulcan Pinball????

Craig’s List was made for you and me!

We set a ramp up, and tried to winch it (didn't work)

So, Matt pulled it up himself! Nothin' to it!

The two ladies looked on with both their jaws dropped!

Craig’s List was made for you and me!


Chorus

Craig’s List is your list, Craig’s List is my list

From used recliners to ‘Vette transmissions

Goats need debudding? Wanna sell some chickens?

Craig’s List was made for you and me

How small and unpopulated is the area we live in? Too small to have a Craig's List. WAAAHHH!
