A bottle of ketchup, two bottles of wine.
Sweet smelling shampoo, to make my hair shine.
A lettuce, tomatoes, a cucumber too –
And carrots and turnips to put in my stew.
A packet of soup mix, some flour for the cake
And for dinner tonight, I think we’ll have steak.
Some ham for our rolls and some of this cheese –
And to keep in the freezer - a packet of peas.
A carton of milk – this large one will do –
No, the smaller one’s better for just me and you.
A dozen small eggs? Oh no, I need large,
A packet of sugar, and large tub of marg.
A box of teabags and, yes, some of this coffee –
As a treat for the children I’ll buy them some toffee.
Now this packet of cereal - it’s my favourite one.
No more on my list, so my shopping’s all done!
