The Lyrics

What did I do wrong
Oh, you forgot to do the shopping
But there were no shops open
There's shops like Asda, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Quick-Save, Netto's and Co-Op
Why do I have to go
Oh, I can't leave the dishes here
But I don't have a clubcard
There's money in my purse, which you can find in my bag
So what do we need when I go to the shops
We need some milk and a loaf of bread
And I fancy pasta, maybe chicken too
Well I know the place that is perfect for you
Let's go to the supermarket (Tesco's, Tesco's)
Because they have everything that we need (Tesco's, Tesco's)
I really like the range of fresh fruits
And they're open 'till nine
So how do I get there
Oh, don't be silly, take the car
But it's running low on petrol
But you can fill it up when you are there
So should I get some orange
Yes, and can you get me some pears
I think I'll get a paper
Well that will please the neighbours as we always steal theirs
I'm getting more excited at the thought of it all
Well please hurry up as we've no food at all
This will be fun, it will be such a lark
It is lucky for us they have a big carpark
We're going to the supermarket (Tesco's, Tesco's)
I just can't wait, as it will be so good (Tesco's, Tesco's)
Do we have enough time to do the whole store
They're open till nine
