 Sifting through the junk at flea markets
For me holds tremendous appeal
Searching yard sales and consignment stores
I'm always hoping to get a great deal

Driving through a small town one day last week
I spied a place that looked so delectable
Visions of dollar signs flashed through my head
As I thought of finding a priceless collectible

Maybe I'd actually see a real hidden treasure
A valuable clock or a lost painting by Picasso
And I'd buy them for a fraction of their true worth
Then take my prizes on Antiques Roadshow

I browsed the place for what seemed like hours
And not one bona fide treasure did I discover
But I did run across lot of things I could use
Including an old slop jar with a cover

I couldn't resist a velvet picture of Elvis
With musical notes all around the border
And bought a ten cent toaster that didn't work
'Cause the cord was probably worth a quarter

Buying used things can be expensive and addictive
I mention that for what it may be worth
And if I keep on going the way I am now
I'll have the biggest junk collection on Earth

One of these days, I'll gather up all this stuff
When my mind is working with a little more clarity
I'll lift and load and bag and box the things
And give all my priceless treasures to charity
