For Sunday: Barbra Streisand sings “Come to the Supermarket in Old Peking”

supermarket in old peking

This Cole Porter song was on Barbra Streisand’s first album.  The lyrics are hysterical, and her performance is perfect.

If you want to buy a saw

Or a fish delicious when it’s raw

Or a pill to kill your mother-in-law

Or a bee without a sting –

Come to the supermarket in old Peking!
