Candy, cherries, red dye number two,

The are all nuts,
Citrus peel, lots of stuff,
Add what you feel!
Sticks of butter, cinnamon,
Molasses, lots of dark rum,
Artificial color, artificial flavor,
If your family don’t want it,
Give it to a neighbor!

A little bit of mace
The stuff they spray it in your face?
Oh no, you sillies!
It’s a spice for taste!
Put the oven on low,
Three hours on….
Wrap it in rum
Yum, yum, yum,
Fruit cake!

Fruit cake!
Heavy as lead
If it hits in the head!
Fruit cake!
It could kill you dead!

Artificial color, artificial flavor.

Give it to a neighbor!
It’s fruit cake!
