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'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 imag... ine

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
Magical food
Wonderful food
Marvellous food
Fabulous food

Beautiful food
Glorious food!


Consider yourself at home
Consider youself a one of the family
We've taken to you so strong
It's clear, we're going, to get along


Consider yourself , well in
Consider yourself a part of the furniture
There isn't a lot , to spare
Who cares?..What ,ever we've got, we share!


If it should chance to be
We should see
Some harder days
Empty larder days
Why grouse?
Always-a-chance we'll meet
To foot the bill
Then the drinks are on the house!
Consider yourself our mate
We don't want to have no fuss,
For after some consideration, we can state
Consider yourself
One of us!
