  • Hey Macklemore? can we go thrift shopping?

    What, what, what, what
    What, what, what, what
    What, what, what, what
    What, what, what, what
    What, what, what, what
    What, what, what, what
    What, what, what, what
    What, what, what, what

    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 just pumped, just bought some shit from the thrift shop
    Ice on the fringe, it's so damn frosty
    The 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
    (Piss)
    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 them
    Bummy and grungy, fuck it man, I am stuntin' and flossin' and
    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, and 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

    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 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 (Shit)
    I call that getting swindled and pimped (Shit)
    I call that getting tricked by a business
    That shirt's hella dope
    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!)

    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
    I look incredible
    I'm in this big ass coat
    From that thrift shop down the road

    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 grandma's coat? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United States> For me this song is Really Cool! I keep playing this on my room lol What the heck?! T-shirt 50$??!!!! Macklemore only had 20$?!! in his pocket ;-D
  • Clay from Adelaide Honestly Bob, a child that is drawn to a catchy beat has no bearing on the mothers political choices.
    And why are you actually trolling a page of a song that you think is trash?
    Was it the catchy beat?
    Or are you looking to pick a texted fight behind a mouse and monitor? I'm sorry you are unhappy with your situation and feel the need to comment on someone who is saying something uncomplicated.
  • Bob from Jacksonville, FlAre you kidding Susan....you let your 8 yr old listen to this trash?? You must have voted for Obama!
  • Susan from Airdrie, AbMy 8 year old loves this song. I'm sooooo happy that it doesn't have any sexual or drug innuendos in it! You can just never tell anymore - at least not as you get older, LOL.
