The Lyrics

Young man decides it's time to propose to his girlfriend. His mate suggests, as he's already bought the ring, he should take her for a romantic meal to pop the question. At the same time he passes him a restaurant voucher which he crumples into his pocket, saying "make sure you order her favourite dish, and tell the staff to dim the lights." "..and hide the ring somewhere she'll find it". He takes her drinking first..quite a bit..then he unfurls the voucher from his pocket. It's for "Nandos".....Inside Nandos he approaches the bar and orders them both pie and chips (her fave)......"Nandos only do chicken" he's told, but as it's a special occasion they compromise and make him chicken pie, As his intended cuts into the pie, she sees the ring.......... 2 years after they marry, a friend asks "how did he propose to you?" Thinking back to that night she sings....mostly as if to him.......
Have you ever been to Nandos?
I remember long ago another drunken night like this
In the dodgy light of Nandos
I was singing by myself and deftly playing air guitar
Could've done with help on drums, but you were busy
You were drinking at the bar

I've a voucher now for Nandos
But they tell me it won't last forever, for eternity
It was full of kids in Nandos
They were young and full of life
And I was waiting for my pie
And I didn't like to say, but when it came
The contents almost made me cry

CHORUS
There was something in the pie that night
I couldn't bite, at Nandos
It was shining there for all to see
Could have choked me, at Nandos
It's not something I would normally choose
But my mind is set
If I ever have the pie again
It WILL be when at Nandos

When we're old and grey at Nandos
And for many years I've often seen a voucher in your hand
Will you play the drums at Nandos?
Will you still recall that fateful night the ring went on my hand?
I could see it in your pie
It's just at first I didn't really understand

There was something.........

There was something..........
To Sarah and Georgia at Sunderland College.......it was their idea!!!

I first saw one of these places in Oxford, UK. Never tried the fare Nando's, though. Good parody fare.
