"An anthem for all the men sick of being told by it's time to throw away their cargo shorts by those with so-called superior fashion wisdom"


Cargo shorts

Every day it don’t matter where I go
I got piece of clothing that I go to in my wardrobe
It’s like shorts and man purse combo
I’m still rocking them shorts we call cargo

Cuz they be loveable, functional, and adjustable
Indestructible, places you can wear them are multiple
I accessorize with flip flops, button up or a tank top
Don’t matter the occasion you know what I rock!

I Got two big pockets hanging on both sides
Two pockets on my behind
And a drawstring to hold them up
Twenty years ain’t dampered my love for them...
Cargo shorts
Cargo shorts
Cargo Shorts
I rock them cargo shorts (x2)

I wear my cargo shorts to work
I wear cargo shorts to church
I wear cargo shorts to the mall
Even wear them when I playing church league softball

I wear cargo shorts seven days a week
Cuz they hold my wallet and keys (what else?)
Cell phone, pocket knife, comb, and receipts
Ten dollars worth of change from last week

Even got them in 50 shades of Khaki
Camo in the woods keep the deer coming at me
Happy, cuz these pockets so deep, take a peak
Under the sheets when I sleep (shhhhhh…)


I know what you’re thinking, “What about winter?”
Ha, you obviously a cargo short beginner
I wear them year round, but when gets so cold that I can't
Zip on them legs - cargo pants !

Chorus (x2)
