By the Average White Band, called "Cut the Cake." It's actually pretty hip! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh, before I forget, here's the lyrics to it:

Cut The Cake

a little lovin on the side
Cut The Cake
I need a little piece
just to keep me satisfied
CHORUS:
gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme,

Well it tastes so good dont pass it all around

Well this song is from the 70's and i don't think they were actually talking about cake. I know some my not agree but let's just say they are not talking about actual cake. You have to read between the lines. lol!!!!!!!!

The B52s also have a song about cake.




In case anyone can't view the video, here's the lyrics. (hmmm...they may not be actually talking about cake in this one either. icon_surprised.gif )

Take a little, take a little nip
Take a little sip, take a little more
Spread icing nice and thick between the layers
Ooh let it drip down the sides
Who cares
Done with the batter...
I am watching it drip down the sides
(If you want a better batter better beat it harder)
I am watching it drip down the sides
I said according to my recipe
You put it on a slow bake
According to my recipe
You put it on a slow bake
I am watching it drip down the sides
(If you want a better batter better beat it harder)
I am watching it drip down the sides
I said according to my recipe
You put it on a slow bake
(Takes a long time for it to rise)
According to my recipe, you put it on a slow bake
(Let it drip right down the sides)
According to my recipe
(Who cares)
I can't wait to put the icing on the cake
I can't wait to put the icing on the cake
Cake...
-Hey, you know what I'd really like to do?
-Say wha'?
-I feel like makin' a cake
-Ooh wah! what kind of cake do you want?
-Umm..., how about pineapple upside-down cake?
-Maybe a chocolate devil's food cake
-Wah!, nothin' like a chocolate devil's food cake
-Ooh, how about an angel cake?
-Umm, some cinnamon?
-Yeah, sure
-Sugar?
-Yeah, uh huh, I swear
-You got a pan the right size?
-A pan?
-It says in this cookbook it takes a long time to rise
-I read that... Now, beware
-Let's get this thing in the oven
Take a little, take a little nip
take a little sip, take a little more
Spread icing nice and thick between the layers
Ooh let it drip down the sides
Who cares
Done with the batter...
I am watching it drip down the sides
(If you want a better batter better beat it harder)
I am watching it drip down the sides
I said according to my recipe
You put it on a slow bake
According to my recipe
You put it on a slow bake
Hah! hah! hah! hah! hah! hah! hah! hah! hah...
I can't wait to put the icing on the cake
Hah! hah! hah! hah! hah! hah! hah! hah! hah...
250 strokes to beat it, I just can't wait to eat it

I guess I join you both in the age thing. I was laughing as I was reading the words saying to myself, this REALLY isn't about cake at all. LMAO

In all fairness to the OP, how many songs did we listen to that we really didn't have a clue what the words really meant? icon_surprised.gif

There actually is a song dedicated to cake Bob, but it's in German.
My DH had a CD that was in all German and he new just a few words but liked the beat (sounded kind of like a hard rock band.) He had our friend from Germany translate it after he listened to it for a few months wondering what it was saying. She just laughed her butt off and told him it's a recipe for a cake made with no eggs. Whenever the crowd was chanting they were saying "AND NO EGGS!"
My DH said he can't get away from cake ever and it's even following him through song. Come to think of it he quit listening to it soon after that. icon_lol.gif The group's name started with an R. I think it was Rhamstien, but I'm probably either spelling it wrong or am wrong with the bands name completely.

You know, it's hysterical, in the Metro-Detroit area there's a local bar band called "Slight Return" and they have a song they do (I don't know the name of it) but the lyrics are his grandmother's fried chicken recipe!! The chorus is "Bake at 350, bake at 350" to a snappy little beat! icon_lol.gif (and I'm quite certain that song IS about chicken!) icon_biggrin.gif

Yep, and I still think Robert Plant was talking about making lemonade -- squeezing the lemon with all that juice running down his leg! icon_eek.gificon_lol.gif (Go ahead, I DARE you to tell me different!) icon_rolleyes.gif

Well in my defense I would print the blurb that came from that cake blog -- she's even more convinced it's about cake than I am icon_confused.gif but I don't want to embarrass her either. So now I'm being told by both family and friends to hang my head in shame -- and get a dog (and a life)! icon_biggrin.gif
