    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
    A pair of leg warmers and non-prescription glasses, oh my

    I found 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

    Would you like to come over and sip whisky in that sweater?
    We could listen to old vinyl and snuggle up in my old smoky afghan
    Like Lady and the Tramp we might share some vegan.
    You should know that I grow all my own vegetables.




    Like my furniture, I got my girlfriend at the thrift store
    I also got a pair of candle sticks and letterman jacket
    Do you like my rugs; I got them out of the dumpster when the neighbors moved
    We live together in my studio apartment, nice whiskey really puts us in the mood


    We found 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

    I brought a picnic and a pair of plastic champagne glasses
    Packed a vegan meal homegrown from my window box
    Rode my banana seat up to the park to meet her
    And on my way,
    She had her eye on a pair of saddle shoes and a fedora...

    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
