Dolly Parton – The Bargain Store, is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Dolly Parton. It was released in January 1975 as the first single and title track from the album The Bargain Store. The song was Parton’s fifth number one on the country chart as a solo artist. The song stayed at number one for a single week and spent nine weeks on the country chart.
Worn, second-hand merchandise in a discount store is used as a metaphor for a woman emotionally damaged by an ill-fated relationship. However, the song was dropped from a number of country stations’ playlists when programmers mistook the line “you can easily afford the price” as a thinly veiled reference to prostitution.

Dolly Parton – The Bargain Store Lyrics

My life is likened to a bargain store
And I may have just what you’re lookin for
If you don’t mind the fact that all the merchandise is used
But with a little mending, it could be as good as new
Why you take for instance this old broken heart
If you will just replace the missing parts
You would be surprised to find how good it really is
Take it and you never will be sorry that you did
The bargain store is open, come inside
You can easily afford the price
Love is all you need to purchase all the merchandise
And I can guarantee you’ll be completely satisfied
Take these old used memories from the past
And these broken dreams and plans that didn’t last
I’ll trade them for a future, I can’t use them anymore
I’ve wasted love, but I still have some more
The bargain store is open, come inside
You can easily afford the price
Love is all you need to purchase all the merchandise
And I can guarantee you’ll be completely satisfied
My life is likened to a bargain store
And I may have just what you’re looking for
If you don’t mind the fact that all the merchandise is used
With a little mending, it could be as good as new
The bargain store is open, come inside
The bargain store is open, come inside
