There's a wonderful world where all you desire And everything you've longed for is at your fingertips Where the bittersweet taste of life is at your lips Where aisles and aisles of dreams await you And the cool promise of ecstasy fills the air At the end of each working day she's waiting there
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket As the evening sky turns blue A dream awaits in aisle number two
With my shopping cart I move through the heart Of a sea of fools so blissfully unaware That they're in the presence of something wonderful and rare The way she moves behind the counter Beneath her white apron her secret remains hers As she bags the groceries her eyes so bored And sure she's unobserved
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket There's nothing I can say Each night I take my groceries and I drift away And I drift away
Items from my ??? At night I pray for the strength to tell her When I love I love I love I love her so Take my place in the check-out line For one moment her eyes meet mine I'm lifted up, lifted up, lifted up, lifted up
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket Though her company cap covers her hair Nothing can hide the beauty waiting there The beauty waiting there
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
As I lift my groceries in to my car I turn back for a moment and catch a smile That blows this whole fucking place apart
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket

Barry from Sauquoit, Ny*** 'With my shopping cart I move through the heart of a sea of fools so blissfully unaware' *** On June 4th 1939, grocer Sylvan Goldman of Oklahoma City mounted wheels on a folding chair and thus the first shopping cart made its appearance... Also; with the song "Reno" he doesn't drop the F-word but he certainly refers to it ('Two hundred dollars straight in, Two-fifty up the ???')...
Max from Beaverton, OrAlso Rob, F-bomb in LONG TIME COMIN': "I Reach 'neath your shirt, lay my hands across your belly And feel another one kickin' inside I ain't gonna **** it up this time"
Q ot S is one of Bruce's worst. Each album has to have this amazing range from Genius to absolute drivel. My iTunes Springsteen library is 222 songs, but this is not one of them.
Laura from Bracknell, United KingdomI can Rob, the early bird catches the f**kin' worm. From 'My best was never good enough' on the Ghost of Tom Joad album.
Rob from Woodstock, GaIs this the only song in which Bruce drops the F-Bomb? I can't think of any other
Will from Schoolcraft, Miholy crap, how does this song even remotely stand up to Mary Queen of Arkansas, dude?
am i the only one who finds this song to be cheesier than a seven layer quesadilla.
Scott from Sydney, AustraliaThe thing about the F-bomb: Because he so rarely uses it, it becomes so much more powerful and real when he does use it.
Matt from Ft. Lauderdale, FlBest song on 'Working On A Dream"! Love the F Bomb! The Boss Rules!
Nancy from Winnipeg, MbLOVE the authentic supermarket scanner sounds at the end of the song! Cool, whimsical tune...
Marty from Mount Vernon, Iathis song harkens back to springsteens early songs like Mary Queen of Arkansas or does this bus stop at 82nd street. Great song.
