Lyrics

(Tory Farmer)
(Can I have some more?)


(Kenneth Clarke) 
(MORE?!? What have you done to deserve it?)


(Tory Farmer) 
(Nothing…)


('Kenneth Clarke') 
(Oh, fair enough! Have a portion of decay! Next!)


(Announcer)
(Everyone onstage for the "Food" number! Keep it down! Shush!)


(Edwina Currie and Chorus) 
Food, dangerous food! 
No chicken and omelette! 
You’re soon in the mood, 
For diarrhoea and gut-rot!


TV dinners with (?), 
Mayonnaise is a killer! 
Egg sarnies from god-knows where, 
Smell that salmonella!


Food, dangerous food! 
Make sure that you boil it! 
One morsel of chewed means 
Four days on the toilet!


Radiation in British lamb, 
Aluminium in water! 
Tory farmers don’t give a damn, 
Carry on with the slaughter!


Food, dangerous food, 
Can prove quite alarming! 
You’ll get yourself sued, 
Blaming battery farming!


Food poisoning’s terribly rare, 
This egg’s so healthy! 
So let’s all forget the jam, 
And keep ourselves wealthy!


Yes, food, dangerous food! 
Life-giving food! Sickening food! 
Wonderful food! Bowel-moving food! 
Glorious food!
