Looking for a song Re: Grand Dad's Birthday cake which is full of double entendre (he stuck his finger in it, etc.). At the very end of the song, it is revealed that "it" is a cake. Sung to some common children's tune, I believe.

Subject: Lyr Add: BIRTHDAY CAKE BOOGIE (from McDonald et al
From: Jim Dixon

This western swing song has been classified as "roots of rockabilly". There is patter at the beginning, which I have not transcribed, which makes it clear at the outset that they're talking about a birthday cake.


BIRTHDAY CAKE BOOGIE
As recorded by Skeets McDonald, Benny Walker, & Johnny White's Band, 1951.

Get your finger out of it; it don't belong to you..
Get your finger out of it; it don't belong to you
I wouldn't give you a piece, now, I don't care what you do.

Well it's all around and filled with cream,
Sweetest darn stuff you ever seen.
Get your finger out of it; it don't belong to you.
I wouldn't give you a piece, now, I don't care what you do.

Well I cut it once; I cut it twice.
The third time I cut it, it was awful nice.
Get your finger out of it; it don't belong to you.
I wouldn't give you a piece, now, I don't care what you do.

Oh, grandpa said just before he died,
If he could [wolf whistle] he'd be satisfied.
Get your finger out of it; it don't belong to you.
I wouldn't give you a piece, now, I don't care what you do.

Now take away your hand and don't let it linger.
You'll get sticky stuff all over your finger.
Get your finger out of it; it don't belong to you.
I wouldn't give you a piece, now, I don't care what you do.

Well, ladies and gen'l'men, there's been a mistake.
I was only talkin' 'bout a birthday cake.
Get your finger out of it; it don't belong to you.
I wouldn't give you a piece, even if it's your birthday, too.

Thanks Jim. I agree that the patter at the beginning spoils the whole point of the song.
