For today’s SLS ,our host Jim Adams, of A Unique Title For Me, has given us the topic of Clothes. This can include pretty much anything, such as hat, shoes, pants, scarf, shirt, tie, etc. Thanks so much, Jim!

Old song or newer song, that was the question for me. There were so many I could think of.

I went with this one, because I like it a lot, and the fun of shopping at a thrift shop is something I do all the time. So I can relate to the song and the video.

caution: there are some bad words 

***

I read that the video was filmed in several thrift shops in the Seattle area.

The song illustrates Macklemore’s interest in buying cheap clothing from thrift shops, disdaining designer labels and trends. (from the Wiki article)

***

“Thrift Shop”, by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, featuring Wanz, was released from their album, “The Heist”, in 2012. It was written by Ben Haggerty and Ryan Lewis.

[Intro]
“Hey, Macklemore, can we go thrift shopping?”
What what, what, what
What what, what, what
What what, what, what
What what, what, what
What what, what, what
Bada, bada, bada doo da
What what, what, what
Bada, bada, bada doo da
What what, what, what
Bada, bada, bada doo da
Bada, bada, bada doo da
Bada, bada, bada doo da
Bada, bada, bada doo da
Bada, bada, bada doo da

[Chorus: Wanz]
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

[Verse 1: Macklemore]
Now, walk into the club like, “What up, I got a big cock!”
Nah, I’m just pumped, I bought some shit from a thrift shop
Ice on the fringe is so damn frosty
The people like, “Damn, that’s a cold ass honkey!”
Rollin’ in hella deep, headed to the mezzanine
Dressed in all pink; except my gator shoes, those are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girl standin’ next to me
Probably should’ve washed this, smells like R. Kelly sheets
(Pissssss…) But shit, it was 99 cents!
Fuck it, coppin’ it, washin’ it

‘Bout to go and get some compliments
Passin’ up on those moccasins
Someone else has been walkin’ in
Bummy and grungy, fuck it, man
I am stunting and flossin’ and saving my money
And I’m hella happy; that’s a bargain, bitch!
I’ma take your grandpa’s style, I’ma take your grandpa’s style
No, for real, ask your grandpa
Can I have his hand-me-downs? (Thank you!)
Velour jumpsuit and some house slippers
Dookie brown leather jacket that I found diggin’
They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard
I bought a skeet blanket, then I bought a knee board
Hello, hello, my ace man, my mellow
John Wayne ain’t got nothing on my fringe game, hell no
I could take some Pro Wings, make ’em cool, sell those
The sneaker heads would be like, “Ah, he got the Velcros.”

I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

[Verse 2: Macklemore]
What you know about rockin’ a wolf on your noggin?
What you knowin’ about wearin’ a fur fox skin?
I’m diggin’, I’m diggin’
I’m searchin’ right through that luggage
One man’s trash, that’s another man’s come up
Thank your granddad for donatin’ that plaid button-
up shirt ’cause right now, I’m up in hurr stuntin’
I’m at the Goodwill, you can find me in the bins
I’m not, I’m not stuck on searchin’ in that section (Mens)
Your grammy, your auntie, your mama, your mammy
I’ll take those flannel zebra jammies
Second hand and I’ll rock that, motherfucker
The built-in onesie with the socks on the motherfucker
I hit the party and they stop in that motherfucker
They be like, “Oh, that Gucci? That’s hella tight”
I’m like, “Yo, that’s 50 dollars for a t-shirt.”
Limited edition, let’s do some simple addition
50 dollars for a t-shirt, that’s just some ignorant bitch shit
I call that getting-swindled-and-pimped shit
I call that getting tricked by business
That shirt’s hella dough

And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don’t
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Tryna get girls from a brand?
Man, you hella won’t! Man, you hella won’t!

Goodwill, poppin’ tags, yeah!

[Chorus: Wanz]
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

[Bridge: Wanz]
I’ll wear your granddad’s clothes
I look incredible
I’m in this big-ass coat
From that thrift shop down the road
I’ll wear your granddad’s clothes (damn right)
I look incredible (now come on, man)
I’m in this big-ass coat (big-ass coat)
From that thrift shop down the road (let’s go, come on!)

[Chorus: Wanz]
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

“Is that your grandma’s coat?”

And just for fun is this one:

This is a song that was in the movie version of the musical, “Annie”. Good movie – good song.

It was written for the soundtrack by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin.

Hey, hobo man, hey, Dapper Dan
You've both got your style
But brother you're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Your clothes may be beau brummelly
They stand out a mile
But brother you're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Who cares what they're wearing
On main street or Seville row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe that matters

Hey, hobo man, hey, Dapper Dan
You've both got your style
But brother you're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Your clothes may be beau brummelly
They stand out a mile
But brother you're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Who cares what they're wearing
On main street or Seville row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe that matters
The lovely Boylan sisters

So, Senator, so, Janitor
So long for a while
Remember you're never fully dressed
Without a smile
You're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Who cares what they're wearing
On main street or Seville row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe that matters

So, Senator, so, Janitor
So long for a while
Remember you're never fully dressed
Though you may wear the best
You're never fully dressed without a

Smile, you're never fully dressed
You're never fully dressed
You're never fully dressed
You're never fully dressed without a

  1. The Thrift Shop song sounds like something my son would listen to. I don’t allow that kind of language so I never really listen to it all. I do agree with “You’re never fully dressed without a smile!” Happy Sunday, Barbara.

    • Thanks, Janet!
      It’s a fun song, but it sure does have some bad language in there, which probably isn’t really necessary to have, and doesn’t really add anything good to the song. That’s my opinion, anyway. So, I felt I needed to put a ‘caution’ up anyway.
      I think the Annie movie and the songs were real cute, and that was one of my favorites.
      Wishing you a lovely Sunday, also. 🙂

    • Thanks, Jill!
      This is a fun song, and the video of them scrambling for bargains at the thrift shop was funny.. It’s true too, that I’m not going to pay fifty dollars for a t-shirt, but will find something for a lot less at the thrift store. I love going to see what I can find. 🙂

    • Thanks, Li!
      Glad you liked these. Annie songs are all so good, aren’t they!
      I’d heard this Macklemore song quite awhile ago, and liked it a lot. Of course singing about thrift stores is sure something different. haha! 🙂
