Weird Al Parodies The Doors and Craigslist Through New Song

Posted Jun 16, 2009


“Weird Al” Yankovic has created a new song called Craigslist. Yankovic imitates Jim Morrison of The Doors throughout the song and he dresses in leather pants and a white shirt in the video. Ray Manzarek of The Doors even helped putting the song together and is playing the keyboard in the background.

Yankovic plans to release this song out of a five song digital download package later this summer. The digital EP is called Internet Leaks. Lyrics are available after the jump just in case you want to sing along with the video.

Whoa, yeah!

You’ve got a 65 Chevy Malibu
With automatic drive, a custom paint job too
I’ll trade you for my old wheelbarrow
And a slightly-used sombrero
And I’ll even throw in a stapler, if you insist

Craigslist
I’m on Craigslist, baby, come on
Yeah

Well, we shared a quick glance Saturday at the mall
I never took a chance, never approached you at all
You were a blonde half-Asian with a bad case of gas
I was wearin’ red Speedos and a hockey mask
Come on, let’s find that love connection that we missed

On Craigslist
Yeah, Craigslist, come on
I’m on Craigslist, baby
Maybe you are too
Bee bomp a chonk a donk bim bang boo

An open letter to the snotty barista
At the Coffee Bean on San Vicente Boulevard:
I know there were 20 people behind me in line
But I was on a cell phone call with my mother
Didn’t you see me hold up my index finger?
That means I’ll order my soy decaf hazelnut latte in just a couple minutes
So what’s with the attitude, lady?
No tip for you

Got a trash can of Styrofoam peanuts, you can have em for free
You can drop by on the weekend and pick em up from me
But the trash can ain’t part of the deal
Only givin’ you the peanuts, get real
Don’t have no Hefty bags, so bring your own
Don’t bug me with questions on the phone
Don’t ask for help, don’t waste my time
And don’t complain, cause they won’t cost you a dime
Just ask yourself
Do you want my Styrofoam peanuts?
You can have my Styrofoam peanuts
Do you want my Styrofoam peanuts?
You can have ’em all

They’re on Craigslist, yeah
Craigslist, oh baby, come on
I’m on Craigslist, Craigslist, Craigslist
I’m on Craigslist, Craigslist, Craigslist now
Craigslist
