|Food, Glorious Food
||Lionel Bart, Oliver!
Is it worth the waiting for?
If we live 'til eighty four
All we ever get is gru...el!
Ev'ry day we say our prayer --
Will they change the bill of fare?
Still we get the same old gru...el!
There is not a cust, 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 imag...ine
Food, glorious food! Hot sausage and mustard!
While we're in the mood - cold jelly and custard!
Pease pudding and saveloys!
What next is the question?
Rich gentlemen have it, boys - In-di-gestion!
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, Glorous food.
Food, glorious food! What is there more handsome?
Gulped, swallowed or chewed - Still worth a kin'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 --
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
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,
