Food, Glorious Food

The title of this blog post is from the play Oliver! I love the hand motions in this video. It makes me think of the video that Adam and I created in Xtranormal for Adam’s father Joel sixtieth birthday party. It brings back memories of “Saturday Night March Five” and “We will have a small party at home with a chocolate birthday cake from the grocery store”. Anyway enough of that please view the cute video below that I am talking about:

Here are the lyrics to Food, Glorious Food:

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 cust, 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,
Marvellous food,
Glorous food.

Food, glorious food!
What is ther emore handsome?
Gulped, swallowed or chewed —
Still worth a kin’s ransom.
What is it we dream about?
Wat brings on a sigh?
Piled pieahes 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,
Marvellous food,
Fabulous food,

Beautiful food,
Glorious food

Here is the video for your viewing pleasure:

The reason why this blog post is called Food, Glorious Food is because last night my parents, Adam, and myself went to Catering by Andrew and met with Andrew to pick out the tisch food menu, cocktail hour menu, reception dinner menu, and the dessert. We got a chance to taste all of the dinner entrees that our guests will get a choice of having. All of the food was delicious. We really hope that everyone will dance and work up an appetite to eat this glorious food. Bon Appetit!
