Food Glorious Food Lyrics

    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 --

    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 ther emore handsome?
    Gulped, swallowed or chewed --
    Still worth a kin's ransom.
    What is it we dream about?
    Wat 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 --
    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
