Mountain Goats Shirt Song (also referred to as Going to the Merch Table or simply T-Shirt Song) is an unreleased song by the Mountain Goats.
Please buy the shirts The 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 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
