Buy these shirts
Shirts are so nice
You'll look stylish
In your Mountain Goats shirt
Ooh ooh ooh

People see you walking down the street, they say
Who's that handsome person
In the Mountain Goats shirt

You will seek out your family, who you haven't seen in ten years, and you're kinda worried how the whole thing's gonna go
And you show up at the door and they say God,
It's good to see you
In your Mountain Goats shirt

After the College of Cardinals was done voting
And it was announced that Cardinal Ratzinger, who leans rather far right, was gonna be the new Holy Father, for better or worse
He could've made a better first impression on the world's media
In his Mountain Goats shirt

So if you're lonely
Or shirtless
Stop by the merchandising table and check out Mr. Vanderslice, he's attractive and I hear he's available
And he's got a whole table full of Mountain Goats shirts

    General CommentFor those that don't know this was a completly adlibbed song from one of the mountaingoats live shows in Sanfransisco, also as soon as he's done singing John hears a guy say "I tottaly requested that song" and says "i guarentee you, in the future people will go, play the one about the mountain goats shirt!" and sure enough he gets requests all the time for it especialy in sanfransisco which he always refuses. Except one time he adlibbed a tiny new version.
