There's a fruitcake for everybody
There's a fruitcake for everyone
There are b-sides to every story
If you decide to have some fun

Take a bite
It's alright
There's some brandy and star margarine to make it bright
Take a bite
It's alright
A little lovin' and some fruit to bake
Life is a piece of cake

It's the season for being happy
But the reason is dead and gone
If the reason for being happy
Takes a backseat when the season's done

Just take a bite
It's alright
Taste the taste that sent all mothers giggling in sheer delight
Take a bite
It's alright
A little lovin and some fruit to bake
Life is a piece of cake

Everybody, everywhere people do you really care
Christmas time has once again arrived
Everybody, everywhere people do you really care
Christmas time has once again arrived
Mistletoe and a little snow
But we don't get it there at fruitcake heights
Mistletoe and a little snow
But we don't get it there at fruitcake heights, oh' no!

Stars are falling down from heaven
But it's nowhere near our town
Miracles are falling down from heaven
But it's nowhere near our town

There's a fruitcake in everybody
There's a fruitcake in everyone
There are b-sides to every story
If the story has just begun

Just take a bite
It's alright
Taste the taste that sent all mothers giggling in sheer delight
Take a bite
It's alright
A little love is why it's all alone
She ran away from home

    Life is what we make as it is... There's always consequences to every actions, and yet, at the end of the day, it's how we want it to be...

    Life is like a fruitcake. Its delicious apperance resembles life because once you bite a fruitcake you don't know what would be the intensity of its sweetness just like of what could happen in our life.

    There's actually a children story book behind the album. There's a bit confusion with the lyrics posted by ian 109. There's also 2 version of the song, 1 for the teaser and the other for the full length. Frannie wei, the run away girl was sad on xmas eve, since her parents was so busy preparing for xmas but she felt being unnoticed on that day. We'll xmas is the season to be happy, but the reason which is the love of god is dead and gone since most of us thought of only the festivity, gifts, food etc. Love of family, friends and of everyone is the essence of the fruitcake album & book itself. :)

    Hate, fear, worries, sadness, happiness, love, failure, triumph.. These are all the ingredients that makes "life," anyone who has gone thru & learned from what they have experienced, becomes a better person from the rest.
