The B-52's Cake Lyrics

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, I can't wait to put the icing on the cake.
Caaaake.

Hey, you know what I'd really like to do?
Say wha'?
I feel like makin' a cake.
Oh 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.
Oh, 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.
Oh, 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...
Two hundred-fifty strokes to beat it, I just can't wait to eat it
