Macklemore "Thrift Shop" lyrics

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

[Verse 1]
Now, walk into the club like, "What up, I got a big c*ck!"
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 me
Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R. Kelly's sheets
But sh*t, 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
Bummy and grungy, f*ck it man
I am stuntin' and flossin' and
Savin' my money and I'm hella happy that's a bargain, b*tch
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 Miller
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”

[Hook]
I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is f*cking awesome


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

[Verse 2]
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 skirt
I'm at the Goodwill, you can find me in the (Uptons)
I'm that, I'm that sucker 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
I call that getting swindled and pimped
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
Trying to get girls from a brand? Then you hella won't
Then you hella won't

(Goodwill... poppin' tags... yeah!)

[Hook]
I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is f*cking awesome

[Bridge]
I wear your granddad's clothes
I look incredible
I'm in this big a** coat
From that thrift shop down the road

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

[Hook]
I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is f*cking awesome

Is that your grandma's coat?
