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 dumb, deedle lee dumb
Deedle lee dumb de dumb dumb

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 dumb, deedle lee dumb
Deedle lee dumb de dumb dumb
