I Love My Shirt

Album: Barabajagal (1969)


  • This is a rather childish song by Donovan about loving your clothes even if they start to wear out. The song is poking fun of fashion trends in the '60s.
  • The song is rather silly, yet fun. It was redone by Donovan on his children's album The Pied Piper in 2002, but would have been better on HMS Donovan, the children's album that he started working on when he wrote this song. Donovan has four children including Donovan Leitch, Jr. (actor Donovan Leitch and member of the band Nancy Boy), actress Ione Skye and singer Astrella Celeste. >>
