The Lyrics

Morrisons, Asda and Tescos are well known British supermarket chains
I have searched supermarkets, I have trawled through the shops
Only to buy something, only to buy something
I have meat, I have fruit, I have a brand new pair of shoes
A new pair of shoes, only to buy something
But I still haven't bought what I came here for
But I still haven't bought what I came here for

I've seen beer, nice flip flops, and reduced price mutton chops
In packs of twenty, for sure there'll be plenty
I have been to the bakery section, I have seen the price reductions
I got some more cheese, I should be pleased
But I still haven't bought what I came here for
But I still haven't bought what I came here for

I should maybe try Morrisons, all the cheap stuff in Asda has gone
It has all gone, but yes I'm still shopping
I've been to Tesco and other chains
All this shopping makes me insane
I'm insane, and others can see it
But I still haven't bought what I came here for
But I still haven't bought what I came here for
But I still haven't bought what I came here for
But I still haven't bought what I came here for

Speaking of Tesco, they may be coming to Nevada and California
