Making the Cake

We're making a cake
We're baking a cake

The wooden spoon is stirring
The electric whisk is whirring
The cat sits watching and waiting and purring

We break the eggs and pour out the flour,
We measure the milk, we've only an hour,
The butter is chopped, the cocoa is sprinkled,
We line the tin and smooth out the wrinkles

The light goes out 'cos the cooker is ready,
The mixture is fluffy and we pour it out steady,
Into the tin, then into the oven,
There's mess everywhere,
But we don't care

We scrape the bowl and lick the spoon,
And we look at the clock, it'll be ready soon
