Shopping Cart Series: We Go Together

shopping carts sticking together ave v e 19

Like the lovebird characters from Grease, Danny and Sandy (and friends), sang in “We Go Together”  – we shopping carts go together, too.

We stay behind this apartment building at Avenue V and East 19th Street.  The super at this building is a pretty nice guy. He says that many of the tenants in the building abandon us here and he really doesn’t know where to put us. He just lets anyone take us, if they so desire. Like yesterday. We had to say goodbye to four of our comrades.

When a couple of people came to take our friends away, we started making some noise: “Chang chang ah chang-it-ty chang shoo-bop.”  Not even our loud clanging was able to deter them and no matter how hard we stuck together, we still managed to lose a few of our own.

In memory of our friends, we sang all the way into the night:

We go together like
Ra-ma la-ma la-ma ka ding-a da
ding-de dong
Remembered forever as
Shoo-bop sha wad-da wad-da
yip-pi-ty boom de boom

So long, our Shopping Cart Friends, we will remember you forever.
