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!
