   (as not sung by Ray Charles)

I saw a shirt today,
But it was not on sale.
I liked the style and fit,
But I don't buy retail.
I know you thought I would,
That outfit sure looked good,
But you don't know me!

Oh, you don't know the one
Who goes to Shop n Save,
Who haunts the Goodwill store
'Cause I'm no Nordstrom slave.
And yet I'm looking great,
Though several seasons late,
And you don't know me!

Oh,  I never shop downtown or at the mall
To second-hand stores I go.
Oh, I never mind the little stains I find,
As long as they don't show!

You look me up and down,
And say I'm lookin' good,
And then you go and shop
In stores I never would.
Cheap 's not a word I speak,
But I'm so tight I squeak,
And you don't know me!
