The Lyrics

Basically this is what happens when someone stores all of their possessions in their dimensionally-transcendent coat and pants. I think that's the term, anyway. Sounds cool, either way. Enjoy!
Got keys and my wallet
My pad - three-ring bind
All jammed in my pockets, yeah
My pens and my pencils
My spare pair of leather boots
And Hobbes, my stuffed tiger, really
My jacket and my jeans, dude
Can hold everything that is all mine, mine, mine
So I've got this junk in my pockets
And they're really stuffed, and to me, that's quite fine

My sketchbooks and art folders
My lunch and my microwave
Spare wires for my laptop, yeah
My mouse and my speakers
Fresh beer and a stash of porn
Not mine, it's my buddy's, really
And somewhere I've got lists, dude
Keep track of my things so nothing's lost, all right
I've got so much junk in my pockets
I can stall muggers by pulling out random shit

Somewhere in here's a canoe
Sometimes I think that my pockets work like the TARDIS
That or all this junk in my pockets
Is stored in dimensions of infinite size

My phone and some chocolate
My Wii and some fries
My cards, game and credit, buddy
My hat and my passport
My mug and my 3DS
My comic collection, buddy
I know I could use bags, dude
But this long-ass coat makes me look like a detective
So I'll keep my junk in my pockets
Got my almanacs and my Chevy Camaro
It seems their storage space has no end, yeah
In my breast pocket, there's my bike, that's right
And despite this junk in my pockets
I can somehow run and jump a lot, answer that
The trick here was striking a balance between "listing the crap in my pockets" and "not boring the reader with a boring list". I think I got it.

I really liked this one T-Cop. In this game I play called Pathfinder there's a magical item called a "Bag of Holding" which creates a mini dimension just to hold all your random crap. I guess this is what you would call a trench-coat of holding and that sounds so much cooler. I totally want one of those!

Loved it! If you're not familiar with the Paul Petersen song "She Can't Find Her Keys" you should look it up.

I thought you meant the other "junk"...what's wrong with me?

Really nice work here, I wear cargo pants/shorts almost everyday and they can be mighty helpful at times. Good job

House hoarding and pocket hoarding in the same round! Max's comment was pretty funny too, although that wouldn't be TCOP's style. I like this song, you did a good job with it.

Artistry...this had a couple of LOL lines in it for me...(it's my buddy's, really!)...and overall I loved the visual of this guy pulling all of his stuff out of his pockets. Hilarious...and add 13 lip glosses, and you'll be a bit TOO reminiscent of my purse. ; )

(Artistry) I'm glad this transcends a traditional listing parody, don't get me wrong, I like those, but they tend to lose steam towards the end of the song. This however did not. Great work!
