Oliver – Food Glorious Food 2 lyrics

Is it worth the waiting for
if we live till 84
all we ever get is gruel
everyday we say a 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
food glorious food we're anxious to try it
3 banquets a day our faveourite 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 handsom
gulped, swallowed, or chewed
Still worth a king's randsom
what is it we dream about
What brings on a sigh
piled peaches and cream about
Six feet high!!!

Food Glorious food eat right through the menu
just losen your belt
2 inches and then you
work up a new appetite
In this interlude
then 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 thinkin' 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 grude
oh food, magical food, wonderful food, marvellous food, fabulous food,
beautiful food, glou-ri-ous fooooooooood.............!!!!
