Food Bank

I make regular deposits,
see you right for Fray Bentos pies
served with tinned peas,
followed by more tinned stuff,
nice hearty meals.

You make regular withdrawals,
shop the aisles for bargains
served with tinned love,
followed by more tinned stuff,
nice hearty meals.

We make regular savings,
cut back on welfare benefits
served with tinned austerity,
followed by more tinned stuff,
nice hearty deals.

We make regular interest,
spread the cost of living
served with tinned unction,
followed by more tinned stuff,
nice heartless deals.

I make regular deposits,
see you right for Cheapo Meatballs
served with tinned spuds,
followed by more tinned stuff,
nice heartfelt meals.

You make regular withdrawals,
swallow plates of pride
served with tinned take it,
followed by tinned or leave it,
nice heartfelt appeals.
