Grocery Store
words by Angela Sheik and Dante Bucci

Girl you'd better get down to the grocery store
Better be back before your daddy gets home,
Get down to the grocery store,
Spend twenty-five dollars and not a cent more.
Get down to the Five and Dime
Come on, girl, make record time.
Get down to the grocery store
Spend twenty-five dollars and not a cent more.

2 dozen eggs, a bag of brown sugar
One loaf of bread and four sticks of butter
Don't cross the four way, better take Pine.
Don't slouch, girl, keep your head up high.

One red onion, a gallon of two percent,
Nutmeg, cinnamon, two sticks of peppermint
That bag boy sure has a sweet smile.
Don't be giving out your number, you're just a child.

Cheese for the salad and the stuffing and the cheese plate.
Crumbs for the chicken and don't forget the corn flakes.
Are you're getting all of this, you need to write it down?
Don't make me come after you, I'm counting on you now.

Put the money in your pocket or you'll drop it on the sidewalk,
If you see your school friends
tell them that you can't talk.
Tie your shoes or girl you're going to fall.
If you see your aunt Patty tell her she'd better call.

Run girl, move your feet!
Lift your knees up high!
Speed on down the street,
Run like you're on fire!

Heading to the grocery store,
Automatic sliding doors,
Passing the baskets, I'm pushing plastic on castors
And watching wall to wall shoppers
Digging through plexiglass hoppers.
They're browsing isles for a while
Looking for the best offers.

Food gets expensive.
I pass a coupon dispenser,
But then I check the unit price and see
This package is denser!

Ladies wearing jeggings next to guys in their suits
But they're all squeezing and shaking and smelling melons for the ripest fruit.

Everything's all family sized,
Why am I compelled to buy
A refrigerated corrugated carton of curly fries?
Line up. Single file.
Must have walked a quarter mile.
Spied me a cutie with Pirate Booty so I asked her,
Using paper or plastic?
Canvas bags are fantastic,
The express line limit's 9, why should I chance it?
'Cuz I've got Nectars Nantucket and boneless chicken fried cutlet.
I'm going to get a little ladle of those nuts in a bucket.
Milk, butter, bacon, cheddar.
Half a dozen bell red pepper.
Followed my list to the letter.
If I missed one, girl you better
Get down to the grocery store.
