The Lyrics

Part of an English Pantomime based on the parable of the Prodigal Son, this is the song the policeman and young Benny sing when Benny's been thrown in jail for debt, and PC Windows gives him some bran-based breakfast cereal
I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you've probably heard it before
But I'm the best waiter in the police force
"Cause everyone cheers when I bring out this course
It's food for the whole man
With dried fruit, hazelnuts and bran
What do you say?

Thank you for the Muesli, the bowl I'm eating
Thanks for all the joy it's bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without colonic roughage what are we?
So I say thank you for the Muesli
For giving it to me.

Father says I was a problem before I could walk
He says I was bound and in pain long before I could talk
And I've often wondered, how did it all start?
Who found out that nothing can sort out my heart-
Burn like muesli can?
Well, whoever it was, I'm a fan

So we say
Thank you for the meusli, the bowl I'm eating
Thanks for all the joy it's bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without colonic roughage what are we?
So I say thank you for the Meusli
For giving it to me.

I've been selfish, now I've come to my senses
I wanna say sorry to everybody
What a fool, what a mess, what a turnround

Thank you for the meusli, the bowl I'm eating
Thanks for all the joy it's bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without colonic roughage what are we?
So I say thank you for the meusli
For giving it to me
So I say thank you for the meusli
For giving it — to me.

Unlike the cereal, this parody is easy to swallow. Very funny.
