Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)
Is it worth the waiting for? If we live till eighty four All we ever get is gruel! Every day we say our prayer -- Will they change the bill of fare? Still we get the same old gruel! 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 -- in digestion!
Food Glorious food We're anxious to try it Three banquets a day Our favorite 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 then food once again food fabulous food glorious food
