    I believe it's called My Eyes Are Dim.



    There was cheese, cheese, wafting on the breeze,
    In the stores, In the stores,
    There was ham, ham, mixed up with the jam,
    In the Quartermaster's Stores.

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

    There was bread, bread, just like lumps of lead,
    In the stores. In the stores,
    There were buns, buns, and bullets for the guns,
    In the Quartermaster's Stores.

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

    There were mice, mice, eating up the rice,
    In the stores. In the stores.
    There were rats, rats, big as blooming cats
    In the Quartermaster's Stores.

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

    There is meat, meat, meat you couldn't eat,
    In the stores. In the stores.
    There were eggs, eggs, nearly growing legs,
    In the Quartermaster's Stores.

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

    There is beer, beer that you can't get near,
    In the stores. In the stores.
    There is rum, rum, for the general's tum,
    In the Quartermaster's Stores.

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

    There was cake, cake, cake you couldn't break,
    In the stores. In the stores.
    There were flies, flies, feeding on the pies,
    In the Quartermaster's Stores.

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