Going To Town

There are some things I want to buy,
I will have to make a list,
I'm running out of everything,
I must stock up before too long,
Monday's a holiday, I think - 
I have a lot of things to buy in town.

I'll have to take my time in town,
I must be careful what I buy,
I'd better not forget my list,
I can't remember everything,
the list will be a mile long,
I will be busy, I should think.

Tomorrow would be best, I think,
if I am going to go to town
for all the things I need to buy,
all the items on my list,
I must make sure of everything,
I hope it will not take too long.

I've left the shopping far too long,
I'll really have to learn to think,
though I don't like it much in town,
it has the things I want to buy,
that is why I made a list,
a list of almost everything.

I hope I've thought of everything,
why does this process take so long?
I'll have headache soon, I think,
too bad I have to go to town,
why do I have so much to buy?
I hope I haven't lost the list!

I'll buy each item from the list,
I'll make sure I have everything,
I hope the queues won't be too long,
they're cutting down on staff, I think,
at the superstore in town,
where so many go to buy.

With everything I have to buy,
I will need a long list, I think,
tomorrow, when I go to town.
