Shout Aloud

Singing for life

Food glorious food

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-dye-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, glorious food!

Food glorious food!
don't care what it looks like,
burned, underdone, crude,
don't care what the cook's like.
Just think of growing fat,
our senses are reeling,
one moment of knowing that
full up feeling.

Food glorious food!
What wouldn't we give for
that extra bit more, 
thats all we live for.
Why should we be fated to
do nothing but brood?
Oh food, magical food, 
wonderful food, 
beautiful food
glorious food.
