Our song for this term is taken from the musical Oliver! 

In this scene Oliver is in an orphanage and about to be served dinner/gruel.   

Gruel is a thin liquid food of oatmeal boiled in milk or water.   

Imagine eating only that 3 times a day!  No wonder Oliver and the other orphans are dreaming of other glorious foods.
