There are snakes, snakes, snakes,
As big as garden rakes
At the store. At the store.
There are snakes, snakes, snakes
As big as garden rakes
At the quatermaster, Quatermaster's Store.

Chorus:
My eyes are dim, I can not see
I have not brought my specks with me.
I have not brought my specks with me.
There are mice, mice, mice,
Running through the rice.
At the store. At the store.
There are mice, mice, mice,
Running through the rice
At the quatermaster, Quatermaster's Store.
There are rats, rats, rats,
As big as alley cats
At the store. At the store.
There are rats, rats, rats,
As big as alley cats
At the quatermaster, Quatermaster's Store.

Beans . . . as big as submarines
Gravy . . . enough to float the navy
Cakes . . . that give us tummy aches
Eggs . . . with scaly chicken legs
Butter . . . running in the gutter
Lard . . . they sell it by the yard
Bread . . . with great big lumps like lead

Goats . . . eating all the oats
Bees . . . with little knobby knees
Owls . . . shredding paper towels
Apes . . . eating all the grapes
Turtles . . . wearing rubber girdles

Flies . . . swarming 'round the pies
