Quartermaster's Store

(source: The World's Best Funny Songs)

There are rats, rats, rats, big as alley cats
In the store, in the store,
There are rats, rats, rats, big as alley cats
In the Quartermaster's Store

My eyes are dim I cannot see,
I have not brought my specs with me
I have not brought my spectacles with me
