"Drip Fed Fred" is a single by British band Madness from their 1999 album Wonderful, featuring Ian Dury on vocals. It was released as a single in January 2000, peaking at number 55 in the UK Singles Chart. It was the last song to which Dury would contribute his voice, before he died in March 2000.

One interesting thing to note about the video is that Lee Thompson looks the same character-wise as in his Crunch! single It's OK, I'm a Policeman.
