A small bottle of ketchup, two bottles of wine.
Then this herbal shampoo will help make my hair shine.
A crisp lettuce, tomatoes, a cucumber too –
And some carrots and turnips to put in my stew.
A large packet of soup mix, some flour for the cake
And for dinner tonight - well, perhaps some nice steak.
I need ham for our rolls; also one pound of cheese –
And, oh yes, for the freezer, a packet of peas.
We have run out of milk, so this large one will do.
No, the smaller one’s better for just me and you.
Now, a dozen small eggs? No, I think I'll buy large.
Then there's sugar, of course, and a large tub of marg.
I must not forget teabags and coffee as well
And this coffee's the best. You can tell by the smell!
Just a small bar of chocolate. Here's my favourite one!
Now it's time to go home for my shopping's all done!
