Supermarket Song

Album: The Merry Goes Round (2011)
  • I wanna say welcome to a wonderland
    An amusement park full of delights and
    The best part is they have one in every town
    its your local market where you ride a cart around

    They have stacks of candy in every isle
    And every kind of cereal that goes on for miles
    Flour and milk that can be made
    Into brown gravy for supper Sunday

    They got 50 pound bags of chicken nuggets
    They got yummy yogurt by the bucket.
    Shelves and shelves of home made stuffin'
    Oh what a treat

    That's what I love about the grocery store
    They have everything that you could want and so much more
    Its so hard to keep my hands inside the cart
    But I better try or mom won't bring me back no more

    They got sweet and sour stir fried rice
    They got Alaskan salmon sitting on ice
    They got blue corn chips and bagel bites
    Coconut in a can

    And if your from the south you'll be really pleased
    They have black eyed peas and collared greens
    And if you're from the North there's stuff just for you
    Like king crab legs and Eskimo pie, too

    They have lots of veggies so you'll grow up tall
    Beef and chicken so you'll be strong and all
    The dairy to help build unbreakable bones
    Hey, ice cream counts, at least I think so

    They have chocolate chip cookies and pecan snookies
    And pop corn snacks where its says on the back
    You get a toy surprise like x-ray glasses for your eyes
    There's croissant rolls, jelly rolls, soda fountains overflow
    If I don't get my snow cone my head will explode

    They got barbecue chicken with all the fixings
    Sweet buttermilk for buttermilk biscuits
    Brownies in a box, just water and mix em'
    Oh oh, um um good

    Yes, its so hard to keep my hands inside the cart
    But I better try or mom won't bring me back no more

    This is the last thing I'll ever ask for in my entire life
    Its just 99 cents Writer/s: JEWEL KILCHER, RUSSELL DAVIS
