Food, Glorious Food - From the musical 'Oliver' written by Lionel Bart

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 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!
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,
Marvelous food,
Glorious food.

Food, glorious food!
What is there  more handsome?
Gulped, swallowed or chewed --
Still worth a kings 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 --
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,
Marvelous food,
Fabulous food,

Beautiful food,

Glorious food

Watching this video made me hungry! Will be back with the rest of your review after I get a snack! Just kidding. Nice editing job! You timed the mustard man just right. I didn t realize there were so many references to food on these shows. Great job!
- wow i loved this its going in favourites folder. Well done. great idea well executed. I would however like to see the clips match the pace of the song a bit better, this might be hard to do given the nature of the clips. And the lyrics are matched Perfectly. But either way Awesome clip. I LOVE IT. i need a good laugh.

LMAO! Hilarious! I never realised there was such a variety of food on both shows. I loved the quote at the end….it topped off a hilarious vid nicely. The editing was really good and you matched the song really well with the clips. Well Done!

Silence & Tears
Jennifer - Haha! Loved this! Loved how you made everyone look like they were starving at the beginning of the vid! Excellent job! Loved the blooper at the end! 

Lady Manson Awards
This video made me laugh.  It was a type of video I had never seen before because it didn't really focus on anyone in the show, but the food instead.  I especially like Spike staggering around trying to get blood - that was great!

Really good.
Great use of the food theme - very appropriate for our pizza party. :-) The "mustard" part got big laughs.
Beauty. Laugh out loud funny.
Cool idea. Too bad Angel and Buffy were kissing in it.
Great beat, "mustard," great story, great music, great editing!
Great humor! The music brings back childhood memories.
Superb! Wonderful! Brilliant! Great play with the song.
Made me very hungry - great tie-ins.

That was just so cute and so much fun.  I loved the clips you chose, they were perfect for the lyrics.  I giggled the whole way through this vid.  Great job!

Chosen Awards
I loved the concept and choice of scenes used, I particuarly loved the 'Mustard' line! Very well thought of. The whole video looked as though it was well thought of and planned ahead - that along with the timings of each clip made it a pleasure to watch.
