Grocery Blues Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

I went down to the grocery store 

To get in I had to pay a dime or more 

I hadn't yet begun to start 

When I had to pay the rent on the shopping cart 

 

Deedle lee dum, deedle lee dum 

Deedle lee dum de dum dum 

 

Well I let the kids loose on the floor 

And they ran round for a while or more 

Till the manager with the broken smile 

Said it's a dollar down and a quarter an aisle 

 

Deedle lee dum, deedle lee dum 

Deedle lee dum de dum dum 

 

I was down in the freezer upon my knees 

Somebody was yelling that the price got freezed 

There was a rioting mob, a strangling hold 

I received the bill for the escaping cold 

 

Deedle lee dum, deedle lee dum 

Deedle lee dum de dum dum 

 

It was about this time that I was goin' insane 

I went and picked the kids up in the other lane 

Put back the food and ran out of the store 

I ain't goin' back to that place no more 

 

Deedle lee dum, deedle lee dum 

Deedle lee dum de dum dum 

 

Well I'm tellin the truth now, I don't fib 

I don't mind no women's lib 

But if my woman don't want to go down to the store 

The family ain't gonna eat no more 

 

Deedle lee dum, deedle lee dum 

Deedle lee dum de dum dum
