Thrift Store Love

Lyrics:

I took a chance and rode my fixed gear to the thrift store




Shopping for a used pair of chuck taylors -- been there before
By the railroad track, I picked up a flat penny
I may not be a rich man but you could say my experiences are many

I chained my banana seat up to the building door
Waived to the cashiers and dropped out my old billfold on the floor
As I bent to pick it up, oh lucky me what caught my eye

I lost my love in a thrift store
She looked so kitschy in a cable knit sweater
I was shopping for some new vintage vinyl
To play in my new old record player full band version: https://soundcloud.com/scot... Show less
