The Lyrics

Cluttered up was my clothes closet,
No space in the dresser drawer
Thinkin' that it's time to donate
To the folks who need it more
Called up and said I'm on my way,
Then boxed that garment pile
Took 'em down in my van
Handed them to the man,
And left there with a smile..

Gave my old clothes to GoodWill
Those duds I didn't wear a lot
For the poor folks, who must buy second hand
Cuz' big cash they have not..
Footwear, dress shirts, and sweaters,
That suit I had my tailor hem
Gave my old clothes to our Goodwill,
Then saw my neighbor dressed in them

Irving greets ya' with his phony smile
Much cheaper he can't be
Takes a seat at movies, on the aisle
Where popcorn's dropped, he'll see
In our shared drive..never shovels no snow
He claims his back is broke
Irv's a banker, that's right,
Squeezes pennies so tight,
He makes old Abe choke..

Gave some old clothes to Goodwill
It made my heart glow like the sun
But had I known..the place where they'd wind up
That deed I'd never done
Irv wears to work, my pin stripe,
The old brown shoes with run down soles
No more old clothes to our Goodwill,
I'll wear 'em till they're full of holes

No more old clothes to old Goodwill,
I'll wear 'em till they're full of holes

AFW - THIS is what our stuff should be! You have a very O. Henry-esque way of setting up a good story and then knocking us out with a surprise twist ending. Great job again. ;D

Yeah, got loads of clothes to give to Goodwill myself, for I have easily outgrown them. Donating 555 articles of clothing for a good cause. Great work and I loved this OS. They played this song for the finale for my dance recital I participated as a child.
