Learn supermarket vocabulary with Bruce Springsteen's song Queen of the supermaket


shopping cart : charriot
cashier : caissière
cash desk : caisse
apron : tablier
bittersweet: doux-amer
aisle : allée
to bag : mettre dans un sac
groceries : courses, provisions
checkout line : queue à la caisse
company cap : casquette à l'effigie de l'entreprise




There's a wonderful world where all you desiere
And everything you've longed for is at your fingertips

Where the bittersweet taste of life is at your lips
Where aisles and aisles of dreams await you
And the cool promise of ecstasy fills the air
At the end of each working day she's waiting there

I'm in love with the queen of the supermarket
As the evening sky turns blue
A dream awaits in aisle number two

With my shopping cart I move through the heart
Of a sea of fools so blissfully unaware
That they're in the presence of something wonderful and rare
The way she moves behind the counter
Beneath her white apron her secrets remain hers
As she bags the groceries, her eyes so bored
And sure she's unobserved 

I'm in love with the queen of the supermarket
There's nothing I can say
Each night I take my groceries and I drift away
And I drift away

With guidance from the gods above
At night I pray for the strength to tell the one I love
I love I love I love her so
I take my place in the checkout line
For one moment her eyes meet mine
And I'm lifted up, lifted up, lifted up, lifted up

I'm in love with the queen of the supermarket
Though a company cap covers her hair
Nothing can hide the beauty waiting there
The beauty waiting there

I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket

As I lift my groceries into my car
I turn back for a moment and catch a smile
That blows this whole fucking place apart

I'm in love with the queen of the supermarket..
