Poppin’ New Lyrics into Thrift Shop

Have you ever had that one song that is so widely inappropriate but every single student in the class begs you to sing it? I’m sure it has happened to many of us, but most of the time we just say “no”. I didn’t say no this time, I knew the lyrics to this song and decided it was easy enough to fix up into something appropriate enough my 5th graders could get into it (Half of it makes no sense but that’s what makes it fun right?). So what I did was take the original lyrics and change them into all completely appropriate lyrics, then I found the karaoke track and handed it off to my  5th graders in chorus (there are 13 of them) and told them to go out in the hall and if they wanted it on the program for our concert they had to get it concert ready themselves. I’m hearing them next week..crossing my fingers it works!

I have been asked for my PG lyrics to the song, most of it fits right in to any typical karaoke track for the original!

PG Lyrics to ThriftShop:

I’m gonna pop some tags

Only got twenty dollars in my pocket

I-I-I’m huntin’

Looking for a come up

This is really awesome!

Walk into the room like what is up I got big money

I’m so pumped I bought some shoes from a thrift shop

Ice in the fridge is so so frosty

The people like “Wow, that’s a cold coffee!”

Roll’in in the deep headed to the mezzanine

Dressed in all pink ‘cept my gator shoes those are green

Draped in a leopard coat girls standing next to me

Probably shoulda washed this, it smells like stinky cheese

Yyeeeaaahhh

But like it was 99 cents!

If I get caught in it, washin’ it

‘Bout to go and get some compliments

Passin’ off those moccasins

Someone else has been walkin’ in but me and grungie feet in ‘em

Im stuck in ya closet

Savin’ my money and I’m so happy that’s a bargin, yeah

I’mma take your grandpa’s style, I’mma take your grandpa’s style

No for real, ask your grandpa can I have his hand-me-downs?

Velor jump suit and some house slippers

Dark brown leather jacket that I found diggin’

They had a broken keyboard I bought a broken keyboard

I bought a sleek blanket and then I bought a kneeboard

Hello hello my ace man my mello

John Wayne ain’t got nothin’ on my finger game

Oh no

I can take some pro wings make ‘em cool sell those

The sneakers will be like

“aahh, he got Velcro”

I’m gonna pop some tags

Only got twenty dollars in my pocket

I-I-I’m huntin’

Looking for a come up

This is really awesome!

I’m gonna pop some tags

Only got twenty dollars in my pocket

I-I-I’m huntin’

Looking for a come up

This is really awesome!

Whatcha know bout rockin’ a hat on your noggin

Whacha knowin about wearin a faux fox skin

I’m digging. I’m diggin’, I’m searching right through that luggage.

One man’s trash is another mans come up.

Thank you grand dad for donating that plaid button.

That shirt goes great with that skirt

I’m at the Goodwill you can find me in the

I’m not I’m not stuck on searching in that section

Your Grammy, Your auntie, your momma, you sister

I’ll take those flannel zebra jammies secondhand I rock that Oh no!

The built in onsie with the socks on the Oh No!

I hit the party and stopped in that Oh no!

They be like oh that’s Gucci that’s very tight.

I’m like, Yo! That’s $50 for a t-shirt

Limited edition lets to some simple addition

$50 for a shirt that’s some stress

I call that getting swindled and missed

I call that getting tricked by a business

That shirts very sweet

And havin’ the same one as six other people in a club is a no don’t

The gang come take a look in my closet

Tryin’ to get girls with my brand man you just won’t

Man you just won’t

Goodwill

Poppin’ Tags

Yeah

I’m gonna pop some tags

Only got twenty dollars in my pocket

I-I-I’m huntin’

Looking for a come up

This is really awesome!

I wear your granddad’s clothes

I look incredible

I’m in this big ole’ coat

From that thrift shop down the road

I wear your granddad’s clothes

I look incredible

I’m in this big ole’ 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 huntin’

Looking for a come up

This is really awesome!
