Marginal Style

I bought a new winter coat, at a shop downtown

One with lotsa pockets, and loaded with down

Well it's a nice big cover, I won't be getting cold

I look like I'm a candidate for the ski patrol


It's Marginal Style… But that's what I wear....

I am getting older now, and I do not care

I might be set in my ways…not easy to rile

I'm jus' stayin' comfortable… with marginal style


I love my aging pick-up, from ninety and one

We've been friends forever and we get a lot done

You know it may not be pretty… I'm sure you'd agree…

But I still take it through the wash….

And it smells just like me


It's marginal style…. But that's what I drive

I am getting older now, but I'm still alive

I might be set in my ways, after all of those miles

And I'll be passing on your left, with marginal style



Well I need readin' glasses, and my hair has gone astray

So I jus' wear this baseball hat….. sixteen hours a day


Oh, maybe I'm not "with it", I don' dress like the kids

And I don' wear Armani, whatever that is

I've got some flannel shirts and a stack 'o' jeans, nothin' low-cut

But at least they're stayin' on me and not

Fallin' offa my butt


It's marginal style, but that's who I am

I am getting older now, and I don't give a damn

Someday I'll go to my rest, with a reason to smile

Cuz on my stone a little poem’ll say…. "Marginal Style"

Left my fluorescent knee pads On. Marginally Stylish. Convenient for picking up doggy doody though.
