lyrics

It's a hopeless world we live in
With the bomb hanging over our heads
The social troubles we're reliving
Mean we might as well be dead

Oh but there's one thing that's needed
By every boy and girl
So grab a knife and fork and sing
All around the world!

Food! Food! Food! it's a glorious comfort
Food! Food! Food! it's what we all need!
Food! Food! Food! we can't live without it
So pass the plate around, don't give in to greed
We all need food

There are millions without housing
And millions who have AIDS
While crass misinformation's
Being handed out in spades

Don't believe your politicians
Don't believe your TV screen
Engage your brain despite the pain
And think "what can it all mean?"

It's about food! Food! Food! it's a glorious comfort
Food! Food! Food! it's what we all need!
Food! Food! Food! we can't live without it
So pass the plate around, don't give in to greed

'cos Food, food food should never be wasted
But most of the food we produce goes straight in the bin
Three quarters of the world have to go hungry
While their governments wage war, it's the ultimate sin
We all need food
