Food, Clorious Food! — Oliver. Lyrics.

Is it worth the waiting for,
If we live till eighty-four,
All we ever get is,
Everyday we say a prayer,
Will they change the bill of fare,
still we get the same old

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,
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 peaches 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
then, food, once again, food, fabulous, food, glorious food!

(this stanza is missing from the musical)

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,
oh food, magical food, wonderful food, marvellous food,
fabulous food, beautiful food, glorious food!
