Come to The Supermarket Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

If you want a fancy fan
Or a turkey born in Turkey-stan
Or a slave that's awfully African
Or a teapot early Ming
Come to the supermarket in old Peking

If you want to buy a kite
Or a pup to keep you up at night
Or a dwarf who used to know Snow White
Or a frog who loves to sing
Come to the supermarket in old Peking

They have, sunflower cakes, moonbeam cakes
Gizzard cakes, lizard cakes
Pickled eels, pickle snakes
Fit for any king

If you want a bust of jade
Or an egg that's more or less decayed
Or in case you care to meet a maid
For a nice but naughty fling
Come to the supermarket

If you come on an ostrich, you can park it
So come to the supermarket and see Peking

If you want a gong to beat
Or a rickshaw with a sassy seat
Or a painting slightly indiscreet
That is simply riveting
Come to the supermarket and see Peking

Well, if you want some calico
Or a gentle water buffalo
Or a glow worm guaranteed to glow
Or a cloak inclined to cling
Come to the supermarket in old Peking

They have bird-nest soup, seaweed soup
Noodle soup, poodle soup
Talking crows with the croup
Almost anything

If you want to buy a saw
Or a fish delicious when it's raw
Or a pill to kill your mother-in-law
Or a bee without a sting
Come to the supermarket

If you come on a turtle, you can park it
So come to the supermarket
If you come on a goose, you can park it
So come to the supermarket and see Peking
