Different tie
But I'm wearing the same suit
It's alright
Cause the old can feel brand new
See, I feel so fresh
I feel so new
And I'm through with
With my miserable youth

All done up in my hand-me-down clothes
Shaking off the dust and assuming a pose
Well, these threads are so old
But they'll never know, no one will ever know
See darling, dear, you don't need high-priced designs
To feel dressed up, to feel dressed up to the nines

Different stride
But I'm wearing the same shoes
It's alright
Cause the old can feel brand new
See, I feel so fresh (and electric)
And I feel so new (and improved)
And I'm through with (yes I'm through with)
My miserable, oh, that invisible youth

All done up in my hand-me-down clothes
Shaking off the dust and assuming a pose
Well, these threads are so old
But they'll never know, no one will ever know
See darling, dear, you don't need high-priced designs
To feel dressed up, to feel dressed up to the nines

You don't need much of anything
To feel lush once in a while
No, you don't need much of anything
Just a strut and a little style
Just a strut and a little style
Well, these threads are so old

And I'm all done up in my hand-me-down clothes
Shaking off the dust and assuming a pose
Well, these threads are so old
But they'll never know, no one will ever know
See darling, dear, you don't need high-priced designs
To feel dressed up
Oh now, you don't need high-priced designs
To feel dressed up, to feel dressed up to the nines

    General CommentOn the surface it's about feeling good in what you're wearing. It may not be the best or the fanciest or the most expensive, but if you make it look good, then strut your stuff.

    But dig a little deeper and I feel that this song is about feeling good in your own body. Perhaps after a breakup, and you're back to who you "used to be." And you feel good again, back in the old threads of your personality.

    Or some bullsh like that.
