Food, Glorious Food

Is it worth the waiting for?
If we live till eighty four
All we ever get is gruel!
Every day we say our prayer —
Will they change the bill of fare?
Still we get the same old gruel!
There’s not a crust, not a crumb can we find,
can we beg, can we borrow, or cadge,
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 —
in digestion!

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! marvelous
food! glorious food!

Food glorious food
don’t care what it looks like
Burnt underdone crude
don’t CARE what the cooks 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
