He’s got the kit
He’s got the kit.
He’s got the kit
He’s got the kit.

Do you look like your ideas?
Do you dress to match the music that you listen to?

Do you like rockabilly, hip-hop, hippy, cowboy, punk, funk, grunge, hipster, Latin, pop, jazz?
Do you surround yourself with things that complement your tastes?
Of course you do.
We all do.

Are you an invert, extrovert, flirt, pervert, religious convert living in a desert, son of the soil, child of the earth, sports fan, moneyman, lady with a sun tan?
You can tell a lot about someone just by looking at their shoes.
What do your shoes say about you, and what are you going to do about it?

Do you like people who agree with you?
People who agree with the things you say and like the things you do.
They like what you do, they like what you say, and maybe they act the same way.
What does that say?
What does that tell you?
It means they have the same kit,
the same kit that you’ve got
and you like them a lot.
You can’t help it.
They’ve got your kit.

Whatever you want to be
Whatever you want to do
There’s a kit that’s right for you.

When I was young I wanted to be a rebel.
I wanted to do the things that rebels do.
So, I cut my hair rebelliously
And wore rebellious shoes
And said rebellious things about the news.
That was the kit I chose.
It’s not the kit I choose.
Now I don’t give a shit.
That’s part of my kit.
I’ve got the kit.

He’s got the kit.
