When I buy a pair of pants
One thing that matters a lot
More than color more than texture even size
Is how many pockets they got

See there’s a lot I carry
In that denim fabric
But more than what I got
Is what I haven’t

I got a wallet and a credit card
I got a bus pass and a pen
Even got a handkerchief and a couple loose dollars
But there’s one thing I’ll never have again

I searched in second hand shops
Looked at Walmart and at Sears
I know I’m not gonna’ find it
Still I been holdin’ out for years

By now I guess you’re wonderin’
What could be so good
To keep me chasin’ day after day
And I’d tell you if I could
