(rod stewart, ian mclagen)I don’t need no one’s opinionOn the matter concerning my dress.I was raised in a clinic down in oklahoma,There were many things I did not possess.Well I never complained, because my father said,Son you get your chance before you’re my age.Then he took me upstairs and gave me this suit(? ) written all over his faceHe said, others may come and others may go,But that suit will be around wherever you’re goin’Three button hand me downThree button hand me downHold on a minuteNow I had my fair share of neat women,But they came between me and my suit.That was a filly from boston, a barmaid from houston,Not forgetting the one in detroit.They said, we like you boy and we think you’re sweet,But can’t you lose your suit? I said, nononono, you can’t do that to meI remember what my father said:He said, others may come and others may go,But that suit will be around wherever you’re goin’Three button hand me down, ha ha,Three button hand me downI’ve never been a tidy dresserAnd the fold in my trousers it ain’t straight.Still I know a good cloth when I see one.That’s why I’m clad in this gray flannel suit.Sometimes I wonder if I should visit a tailorAnd get myself a smooth outfit.Then I remember what my father said to me.I make it from the open road, you all know thisHe said, others may come and others may go,But that suit will be around wherever you goThree button hand me down,Three button hand me down, ha ha
