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!
