COME TO THE SUPERMARKET (IN OLD PEKING) (Cole Porter) Barbra Streisand - 1963 If you want a fancy fan Or a turkey born in Turkey-stan Or a slave that's awf'lly African Or a Teapot early Ming, Come to the supermarket in old Peking. If you want to buy a kite Or a pup to keep you up at night Or a dwarf who used to know Snow White Or a frog who loves to sing, Come to the supermarket in old Peking. They have: Sunflow'r cakes, moonbeam cakes, Gizzard cakes, lizard cakes, Pickled eels, pickle snakes, Fit for any king, If you want a bust of jade Or an egg that's more or less decayed Or in case you care to meet a maid For a nice but naughty fling, Come to the supermarket, If you come on an ostrich, you can park it, So come to the supermarket And see Pe- King. If you want a gong to beat Or a rickshaw with a sassy seat Or a painting slightly indiscreet That is simply riveting, Come to the supermarket and see Peking. Well, If you want some calico Or a gentle water buffalo Glow worm guaranteed to glow Or a cloak inclined to cling, Come to the supermarket in old Peking. They have bird's-nest soup, seaweed soup, Noodle soup, poodle soup, Talking crows with the croup, Almost anything. If you want to buy a saw Or a fish delicious when it's raw Or a pill to kill your moth'r-in-law Or a bee without a sting, Come to the supermarket, If you come on a turtle, you can park it, So come to the supermarket If you come on a goose, you can park it, So come to the supermarket And see Pe- King!
