Lyrics Food, Glorious Food

Is it worth the waiting for if we live 'til eighty four all we ever get is gruel
Ev'ry day we say our prayer will they change the bill of fare
Still we get the same old gruel
There is not a cust not a crumb can we find can we beg can we borrow or catch
But there's nothing to stop us from getting a thrill when we all close our eyes and imagine
Food, glorious food hot sausage and mustard
While we're in the mood cold jelly and custard
Peas pudding and saveloys what next is the question
Rich gentlemen have it boys indigestion
Food, glorious food we're anxious to try it
Three banquets a day our favourite diet
Just picture a great big steak fried roasted or stewed
Oh food
Wonderful food
Marvellous food
Glorious food
Food, glorious food what is there more handsome
Gulped swallowed or chewed still worth a king's ransom
What is it we dream about what brings on a sigh
Piled pieahes and cream about six feet high
Food, glorious food eat right through the menu
Just loosen your belt two inches and then you
Work up a new appetite in this interlude
The food once again food
Fabulous food
Glorious food
Food, glorious food don't care what it looks like
Burned underdone crude don't care what the cook's like
Just thinking of growing fat our senses go reeling
One moment of knowing that full up feeling
Food, glorious food what wouldn't we give for
That extra bit more that's all that we live for
Why should we be fated to do nothing but brood on food, magical food
Wonderful food
Marvellous food
Fabulous food
Beautiful food
Glorious food
