Thrift Shop Lyrics

Hey, Macklemore! Can we go thrift shopping?
What, what, what, what...

Bada, badada, badada, bada

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

Nah, walk up to the club like, "What up? I got a
big cock!"
I'm so pumped about some shit from the thrift
shop
Ice on the fringe, it's so damn frosty
That people like, "Damn! That's a cold ass
honkey."
Rollin' in, hella deep, headin' to the mezzanine,
Dressed in all pink, 'cept my gator shoes, those
are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girls standin' next to
Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R.
Kelly's sheets
(Pis)
But shit, it was ninety-nine cents! (Bag it)
Coppin' it, washin' it, 'bout to go and get some
compliments
Passin' up on those moccasins someone else's
been walkin' in
But me and grungy fuckin it man
I am stuntin' and flossin' and
Savin' 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
kneeboard
Hello, hello, my ace man, my Mello
John Wayne ain't got nothing on my fringe game,
hell no
I could take some Pro Wings, make them cool, sell
those
The sneaker heads would be like "Aw, he got the
Velcros"

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

What you know about rockin' a wolf on your
noggin?
What you knowin' about wearin' a fur fox skin?
I'm digging, I'm digging, I'm searching right
through that luggage
One man's trash, that's another man's come-up
Thank your granddad for donating that plaid
button-up shirt
'Cause right now I'm up in her stuntin'
I'm at the Goodwill, you can find me in the
(Uptons)
I'm not, I'm not sick of searchin' in that section
(Uptons)
Your grammy, your aunty, your momma, your
mammy
I'll take those flannel zebra jammies, second-
hand, I rock that motherfucker
The built-in onesie with the socks on that
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 fifty dollars for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty 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 a 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!)

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

I wear your granddad's clothes
I look incredible
I'm in this big ass coat
From that thrift shop down the road
I 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)

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

Is that your grandmas coat?

Its about a guy who thinks he's hot stuff and he has a lot more money than I do. Mye pockets are empty almost always. He has very little fashion sense, I do say. I like to dress in my favorite suit now and again, but this lad is takin' it way too far, mates.
