The singer-songwriter Cat Faber has a song (copyright 1993) called
"Bin There, Dun That"
( I hadn't heard
of the "T-shirt" extension before this thread, but the chorus seems to
allude to it:

'Cause I been there, done that, learned what I should know,
Got the footprints on my T-shirt, got the bruises I can show.
