Shoppin' For Clothes Lyrics - Singles - The Coasters

I was shopping for a suit the other day 

And walked into the department store 

Stepped on the elevator and told the girl 

"Dry goods floor" 


When I got off, a salesman come up to me 

He said "now, what can I do for you?" 

I said "well go in there and show me all the sport's clothes 

Like you're supposed to" 


He said, "well, sure, come on in buddy 

Dig these fabrics we got laid out on the shelf" 

He said 

"Pick yourself out one try it on, stand in the mirror and dig yourself" 


(Ooh-ooh-ooh) that suit's pure herringbone 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) yeah, that's a suit I'd like to own 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) buddy, that suit is you 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) yeah, I believe it too 


I see for the business man you featurin' a natural shoulder 

That retail, wholesale, indeed 

It's got the custom cuffs and the walking short 

He said "And I'm gonna let you have at a steal" 


And for the playboy you have the latest in tweed 

With the cut-away flap over twice 

It's a box-back, two button western model 

He said, "Now ain't that nice" 


(Ooh-ooh-ooh) them buttons are solid gold 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) you made a deal, sold 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) that collar's pure camel hair 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) well, you can just set it down right in that chair 


Now you go back there and you get that paper and let me sign on the dotted line 

And I'll make sure I get all my payments in right on time 

Hey wait a minute buddy, let me go back there and do a little checking on you 

Then the man come back, he said "I'm sorry my man, but your credit didn't go through" 

Why, what you mean? 


(Ooh-ooh-ooh) ain't this a shame 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) my heart's in pain 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) pure, pure herringbone 

(Ooh-ooh-ooh) that's a suit you'll never own 

Ooh, Lord have mercy, I gotta good job, sweeping up every day...
