Long Firm Freddie Lyr Req: Songs about cakes (54* d) RE: Lyr Req: Songs about cakes 15 Jan 13


Found this on a CD called "They Played the Hackney Empire":

Cut Yourself a Little Piece of Cake - The Two Leslies

We are members of a family that likes to live and laugh
The whole hog it has got to be, we don't do things by half
We always try to make things bright, our motto is good cheer
And any time of day or night, this sort of thing you'll hear:

Come along and see us at our little flat
Happiness is what we want to make
Wipe your little tootsies on the front door mat
And cut yourself a little piece of cake

Come along and have a cup of tea with us
Anything you want just simply take
You'll be quite at home we never make a fuss
So cut yourself a little piece of cake

Ma likes a little bit, Pa likes a little bit,
Kids like a little bit too…
I like a little bit, you like a little bit,
We all like a little bit we do do do…

We'll be full of jollity and real good cheer,
And we want to give you all a break
Hang your hat and coat upon the chandelier
And cut yourself a little piece of cake

Come along and see us at our little flat
Happiness is what we want to make
Leave a little pattern on the front door mat
And cut yourself a little piece of cake

Now come along and have a little drink with us
Anything you want just simply take
There's another gallon coming on the local bus
So cut yourself a little piece of cake

Ma likes a little drink, Pa likes a little drink,
The kids like a little drink too…
I like a little drink, you like a little drink,
We all like a little drink we do do do…

You'll be full of jollity and real good beer
Think of all the things that you can break
When you've finished fighting hand me back my ear
And cut yourself a little piece of cake

It's Auntie Minnie's birthday, what d'yer think of that?
And some whoopee she is going to make
So wipe your little tootsies on the old tomcat
And cut yourself a little piece of cake

And she's going to give you all some birthday cake
A special cake the baker's had to bake
And it's there for any one of you to take
So cut yourself a little piece of cake

Ma tries a little bit, Pa tries a little bit,
Kids try a little bit sure…
I try a little bit, you try a little bit,
The dog gave his portion to the hens next door…

There's a candle on the cake for each birthday
Now they're all alight I want a break
One or two have fainted from the heat they say
But cut yourself a little piece of cake

Tiddleypush!
