Thrift Store Boogie (Bon Tempi Tune)

I found my favorite organ
with plastic keys and hummin' little fan
an old record player and
the best they had for vinyl wasn't bad
They had Christmas albums, workout records
and every golden oldie compilation
and stompin’ tunes like Boxcar Willy
well I bought every one that tiny thrift store had

I paid a dollar for these pants
at the Salvation Army
Praise the lord
there ain't no tax
on a deal this divine
Praise the lord
Jesus would have dug my style
and how I shopped around
in loving harmony
the cashier played the gospel
on my little plastic organ
so I bought it for six dollars
praise the lord

I left that store with more than I'd
ever strapped onto my bike before
Peddled home safe and sound
and just as I was walkin' through the door
They were jammin' in the kitchen
on a bluegrass reggae klezmer rumba reel
I plugged in my new organ and told
everyone about them thrift store deals
