Frank: We ought to bake a sunshine cake,
It does more good than a big thick steak,
Paula: Start with a tablespoon of trouble,
Then add a smile and let it bubble off.
Frank and Paula: We ought to bake a sunshine cake
Paula: It isn’t really so hard to make
Frank: Fresh tears upon the tomb of pleasure,
Paula: Kind words you needn’t use a major cut
Frank: It’s not from a recipe book,
You don’t have to be a good cook.
Paula: Or run to the oven and look
Frank and Paula: With such a simple dish, all you do is wish.
So why not bake a sunshine cake,
Frank: Of course it may keep your dreams awake.
Friends say there’s nothing like the flavor,
Don’t wait to do your friends a favor,
Frank and Paula: And for goodness sake, let’s bake a sunshine cake.
Frank: It’s got vitamins A, vitamins B
Paula: Vitamins L-O-V-E
Frank: If you’re fat, it’s for that,
Paula: If you’re thin, stuff it in
Frank and Paula: What’s wrong if you get a lot of grin,
We ought to bake a sunshine cake.

Frank: It’s not from a recipe book
Paula: You don’t have to be a good cook.
Frank and Paula: Or run to the oven and look
With such a simple dish, all you do is wish.
So why not bake a sunshine cake,
Of course it may be your dreams awake,
Frank: Friends say there ain’t nothing like the flavor,
Paula: Don’t wait to do your friends a favor.
Frank and Paula: And for goodness sake, let’s bake a sunshine cake.
