    Lyrics by wolverinetuner, sung to the tune of “The Things We Do for Love”:

    Too many normal people fall into this hobby
    Too many of us all have lost our sanity,
    You buy your first one then you pay the price
    The things we do for pins, the things we do for pins.

    You don’t want drama and you hope it’s not a scammer
    You’ve got the seller’s number entered on your phone
    You call and find out you’re the fifth in line
    The things we do for pins, the things we do for pins.

    Like driving in the rain and the snow
    When it’s too far to go
    And you’re feeling like your lower back is dying
    But this one may not be up again for sale
    The to-do list is so great now
    But it all will have to wait now.

    Ooh, you’re on my wishlist
    Ooh, I’m on my way
    Ooh, you had me at the asking price

    I’ve got some nice ones, the collection is just right now
    “But there’s a better one” a voice inside refrains
    And so I’m back online to search again
    The things we do for pins, the things we do for pins....

    I’m working a second job to fill the line I’m stuck at 2

    All part of the things we do for pins!

    Oh, the miles we've logged......the backaches we've endured....the money we've spent......but the times we've had!

    At least I didn’t have to log too many miles to buy a pin from you. Helps make up for the one I drove to Delaware to get!
