The Lunch You Take was a song on the album Shabby Road. It would be the last song recorded by The Rutles until Archaeology 1.


The song itself is almost an instrumental, with barely any lyrics. However, near the end the music quiets down, and the Rutles state what many people believe to be their best and last testiment to the world, which is:

"And in the end the lunch you take, is equal to the lunch you make."
