When the world around you is falling down,

and it’s disaster all around,

Do as I do, for heaven’s  sake–

Have a little bite to eat

and make it cake!


We like cake of every kind,

but chocolate is the best,

All my sons like angel food,

Me too, I must confess.


Whenever company comes to call,

invited or otherwise,

bring out a cake that’s freshly frosted,

Watch it light up everyone’s eyes;


No matter what the time of year,

No matter what the weather–

Slice up some freshly home made cake,

It’ll make you feel so much better!
