Quotables: It's the Etsy Sing-Off!!!

Just add cupcakes and beer

ETSY THEME SONG
To Cheers tune
I started the first couple lines feel free to add

Listin' some crafts on-line , today, tkae everything you've got.

Sell one thing, here on etsy, sure would mean alot.

Wouldn't that really make your day?

Some times you wanna go

where everybody makes handmade

and your always glad to trade...



You know the tune
THE ETSY BASH

I was posting in the forums late one night
When my eyes beheld a disgusting sight
Daniellexo posting like a teen
And suddenly I felt mean

I did the BASH
I did the Etsy bash
The Etsy bash
It was a snark-filled smash
I did the bash
It caught on in a flash
We did the bash
We did the Etsy bash

From the Storque all filled with fluff
To Gift Guides, filled with Admin's stuff
The dissatisfied came out of their shop
To tell Admin. to make the crap stop

They did the BASH
They did the Etsy bash
The Etsy bash
It was a snark-filled smash
They did the bash
It caught on in a flash
They did the bash
They did the Etsy bash

The Admins were just having fun
The party had just begun
They were eating cupcakes
and creating puns

Customers were not pleased with their frolic and play
Many shop owners shouted and some did not stay
The cheerleaders were beginning to yell
"Leave Admin alone and YOU go to hell"

Leaving his PlayStation, Rokali finally appeared
"Don't worry" he said "we'll get everything cleared"
He opened a box and swimmy swam out
Then thick frosted cupcakes were thrown about

They did the BASH
They did the Etsy bash
The Etsy bash
It was a snark-filled smash
They did the bash
It caught on in a flash
They did the bash
They did the Etsy bash

I've had the 'Etsy Bash' tune in my head for the last 24 hours....well, that and the words 'Death Shroud'.

Wendy said...

Thanks for the fun wake-up! I sang and laughed right through morning tea, and I'll be humming Etsy Bash all day.

The Disgruntled One said...

Death Shroud, Death Shroud
Stupid, pointless Death Shroud
Death Shroud, Death Shroud
Hang it up -- CRASH!

(ahem. sung to the tune of Fish Heads, of course)

I'm not sure what frightens me more.. they lyric or the fact that I knew the tune before you said what it was..

ShrugItOff said...

in the spirit of the sing-along,
This one is sung to the tune of ABBA's 'Take a Chance on Me'


--------------------------

If you list your crap, you can take a nap
People can't you see
What it used to be?
If you renew, make some tea, it'll still be there
If you've got no sales yet, sell your underwear
If you're all revved up, Admin doesn't really care
People can't you see
What it used to be?
Sellers will do their best and it ain't no lie
Puttin' Etsy to the test, their shop soon dies

People can't you see....
(That's all I ask of you really)
What it used to be?

We can frost cupcakes, we can make hammocks, as long as we're grinning
Make some silly movies, maybe string popcorn, Admin's shops are winning
'Cos you know I've got
So much that I wanna sell, soaps lotions and some gel
It's magic
You want me to list it here, afraid I'll move somewhere
But I think you know
That I have to go

If you list your crap, you can take a nap
People can't you see
What it used to be?
If you renew, make some tea, it'll still be there
If you've got no sales yet, sell your underwear
If you're all revved up and you don't really care
People can't you see
What it used to be?
Sellers will do their best and it ain't no lie
Puttin' Etsy to the test, their shop soon dies

People can't you see....
(That's all I ask of you really)
What it used to be?


Oh you can list all day, Don't be in a hurry, know your stuff will sit there
You don't care 'bout selling, you don't worry, you're just happy to be here
Let me tell you now
My stuff is good enough to sell when times are rough
It's magic
I will not waste my time, I'll start a website that's all mine
I think you know
Why I need to go

If you list your crap, you can take a nap
People can't you see
What it used to be?
If you renew, make some tea, it'll still be there
If you've got no sales yet, sell your underwear
If you're all revved up and you don't really care
People can't you see
What it used to be?
Sellers will do their best and it ain't no lie
Puttin' Etsy to the test, their shop soon dies

People can't you see....
(That's all I ask of you really)
What it used to be?

I nominate "Welcome to the Jungle" as the official theme song of the etsy forums!

As for admin...the Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" may fit Rokali and Daniellexo perfectly...

silver-gwyn said...

Kinky, that was awesome!

The Kinky One said...

Silver, I can't take credit for what I didn't write - ShrugItOff wrote Etsy Bash as a comment for the Helloooo Maria post. It was too funny and I had to share of course!

Peldyn said...

Awesome songs! Us Threaders used to filk songs all the time until we stopped our V- threads, it just wasn't the same after Emckinstry was banned. We have a database of them somewhere. Pie, you wrote a good many of them!

silver-gwyn said...

Oops, I apologize! I must have missed something.

Shrugitoff, brilliant!!!

the fluffy one said...

Etsy Bash is most excellent!

The Righteous One said...

I can't decide!!! :)

The Etsy Family

They're pompous and they're poopy,
Delerious and loopy,
They're all together doofy,
The Etsy Family.

Their site is a flea market
Where resellers come to park it
They don't want us to snark it
The Etsy Family.

(Neat)
(Sweet)
(Petite)

So sellers get your flags out
And re-new your little hearts out
We're gonna do a call-out
The Etsy Family.

wristeroni said...

Love it, Windy!

The Kinky One said...

I had that Abba song stuck in my head, and then Windys came along with the Etsy Family ;)

The Disgruntled One said...

Windys that was double plus good!

FerretBard said...

To the tune of The Star Spangled Banner- keep in mind I wrote it last year when etsy was a little happier...

Oh Say My Etsy!
You’re like heaven to me
I can list all my work
And perhaps make some money

All the beads and the clay
Photographs and crochet
Handstamped cards and
Cool clothes
I could shop here all day!

And the forums are great
Though I stay up too late!
Making friends, having laughs,
While we communicate...

Oh Etsy, my Etsy
I will give up my heart
To the site for low fees – (deep breath!!!)
And the home of Great ART!!!

To the tune of LOVE STINKS - J. Geils Band:

Search!
Stinks!
(search stinks)
Yeaaah
Yeah!
(search stinks)

Search
Stinks
(search stinks)
Yeaaah
Yeah!
(search stinks)

Thank you, thank you, *wide sweeping bow*

I think all the songs are terrific, especially the Etsy Bash. And fish heads, it's pretty scary, but I knew the tune before I read it too.

Maybe our talents are wasted on Etsy, and we should be song writers instead.
