Notes

*Or "blooming cats"

Here's the version Chloe sent us:

There were eggs, eggs on tiny little legs,
In the store, in the store,
There were eggs, eggs on tiny little legs
In the quartermaster's store!

(Chorus)
My eyes are dim! I can not see!
I have not brought my specs with me!
I have not brought my specs with me!

*****

More Verses:

There is gravy, gravy, enough to sink a navy...
There is cheese, cheese, to bring you to your knees...
There are beans, beans as big as submarines...
There are bears, bears, but no one really cares...
There is bread, bread as hard as lumps of lead...

Brian sent this note with more verses...

I remember the following verses from when I was a child: -

There were chips, chips as big as battleships...
There were dogs, dogs, the size of sows and hogs...
There were plates, plates as big as garden gates...
There were hats, hats as big as cricket bats...
There were clocks, clocks that smelled like football socks...
There were nails, nails the size of train track rails...

I'm sure there were others so if I can remember them, I'll pass them on.

Other lines in the version in the YouTube below...

There was cake, cake that made your belly ache...
There were beans, beans as big as submarines...
There were fleas, fleas that made you want to sneeze...
There were mice, mice running through the rice....
There were bananas, bananas wearing pink pyjamas...
There were bears, bears running down the stairs...
Bread harder than my head...
Gravy enough to float the navy...
Fleas as big as bumble bees...
