Subject: Lyr Req: Value Village Stomp
From: Cluin
Date: 07 Mar 06 - 10:02 PM

Looking for lyrics and information on a song possibly called "The Value Village Stomp", unknown artist, heard on the radio while highway driving.

Lyrics include something like:

I like shopping with Lester
And Lester likes shopping with me...


and another line about stomping up and down the aisles of Value Village and "Jordache jeans".

Any info appreciated.

Thanks.

I just learned that Value Village is a chain of thrift stores in the Pacific Northwest (USA) and Canada, and the same chain is known as Savers in the rest of the US and Australia.

You might try contacting them directly to see if they know anything about the song. Here's their "contact us" page.

Cluin, could it be The Value Village Shuffle by Dennis Lakusta out of, I think, Edmonton? Check Here

I'd say it's almost certain that VALUE VILLAGE SHUFFLE is the song Cluin wants. Dennis Lakusta wrote it and performs it on his album "Suusa's Room" DJL 003, 2000; also on "Kick Your Television In," DJL004, 2002.

Quote from the web site:
    "Value Village Shuffle" Dennis' visit to Value Village store with Lester Quitzau. If you want to impress your girlfriend, don't forget to remove the tags!
Unfortunately, the link on that page that is supposed to play an mp3 file is a dead link. I can't find any other lyrics or sound files.

Metchosin: How did you find that? I'm always interested in learning new tricks of the web searching trade.

I'm a CBC addict Jim, particularly of Lorne Elliot's comedy show Madly Off In All Directions. I was pretty sure I had heard Lakusta on there, if not another CBC programme. He's a very funny guy. Can't remember what I googled exactly to find out further info on him.

VALUE VILLAGE SHUFFLE

Shoppin at the value village,
when we ain't got nuthin to do.
I like shoppin with Lester.
He likes shoppin there too.

You got to put the downtown shuffle.
You got to put the big big smile.
Noone does it better than Lester,
groovin up and down the isle

I never saw so many people.
Got to be a half priced sale.
Everybody must have got a flyer, in the mail.

The rich man, the poor man, the beggar.
Shuffle in and out the door.
All a dem fillin their baskets.
Shuffle all around the store.

Then You take em to the girl at the counter.
The one in the bright red gown.
She got the mastercard she got visa.
Time to lay your money down.

Then she folds everything so careful.
Puts it in a big white bag.
If you want to impress your girlfriend, remove the tag.

remove the tag,
remove the tag,
remove the tag,
remove the tag,
remove the tag,
remove the tag,
remove the tag,
remove the tag.

We got Calvin Klien, Bugle Boy Georgia Armani too.
We're lookin like a million dollars, walking down the avenue.
We got Oscar DeLaurenta. We got the Club Monaco.
Don't forget to remove the sales tag so noone will ever know.

You'll fool all your friends and neighbors.
Fool the world, you'll fool them all.
Everybodys gonna think you paid retail, at the mall.
At the West Edmonton Mall.

Shoppin at the value village,
when we ain't got nuthin to do.
I like shoppin with Lester.
He likes shoppin there too.

You got to put the downtown shuffle.
You got to put the big big smile.
Noone does it better than Lester,
groovin up and down the isle.

I never saw so many people.
Got to be a half priced sale.
The last time I saw that guy over there was in jail.
