This is an anthem for all those who are feeling irritated
when they’re standing with shopping close to one who’s over catered
Let this be your mantra when you’re stuck in the line
if they’ve got too much Fanta and you have no time

Just tap them on the shoulder and sing

Ten means ten and less means less
it’s simple logic and arithmetic
Eleven and twelve they just won’t do
so take your twenty seven items and get out the express queue

You are an abomination against humanity
I see you’ve bought today’s paper so I know you can read
Seems it doesn’t suit you obeying the sign
and I can’t prosecute you, cause it isn’t a crime

I’ll just tap you on the shoulder and sing

Ten means ten and less means less
it’s simple logic and arithmetic
Eleven and twelve they just won’t do
so take your twenty seven items and get out the express

‘Q’, followed by ‘U’, and then an ‘E’
bring back the ‘U’, and his friend ‘E’
Yes we spelt queue, it’s what we do
when stuck in a queue, stuck here with you

Ten means ten and less means less
Ten means ten and less means less
Ten means ten and less means less
Ten means ten and less means less

Ten means ten and less means less
it’s simple logic and arithmetic
Eleven and twelve they just won’t do
so take your twenty seven items and get out the express

All I’ve got is milk and bread
but you could fill the pantry and the shed, whoa oh oh
Ten means ten and less means less
so take your 27 items and get out the express queue
