Verse:
            D           A    Bm   A
 There's a fruitcake for everybody
             G           A   Bm  A
 There's a fruitcake for everyone
           D            A    Bm
 There are B sides to every story
     G             A       Bm  A
 If you decide to have some fun.

Chorus:
         D A
 Take a bite
         Bm A
 It's alright
               G              Bb        C
 There's some brandy and star margarine
     D        A
 To make it bright
         D   A
 Take a bite
         Bm   G
 It's alright
          G
 A little lovin' and some fruit to bake
                  -A-
 Life is a piece of cake.

Interlude -x2-: D  C  Em


Verse -same as first-:
 It's the season for being happy
 But the reason is dead and gone
 When the reason for being happy
 Takes a backseat when the season's done.

Chorus:
                   D            A
 So Take a bite -take a bite-
         Bm             A
 It's alright -it's alright-
             G                 Ab
 Taste the taste that sent all mothers
 Bb       D                A
 Giggling in sheer delight
         D            A
 Take a bite -take a bite-
         Bm           A
 It's alright -it's alright-
          G
 A little lovin' and some fruit to bake
  A                  E D   -4x-
 Life is a piece of cake...

Bridge:
 E
 Everybody, everywhere people who don't really care
 D7                          E      D
 christmas time has once again arrived -2x-
       E
 Some mistletoe and a little snow
     D7                                   E   D
 But we don't get it down in fruitcake sights -2x-

 Oh no!

Interlude:
    E  G  D 
    E  G  D  C

           Bb                C
 Stars are falling down from heaven
          Bb                   C
 But it's nowhere near our town
              Bb                C
 Miracles are falling down from heaven
          Bb      Baug          A
 But it's nowhere near the town.

Verse:
            D           A    Bm   A
 There's a fruitcake for everybody
             G           A   Bm  A
 There's a fruitcake for everyone
           D            A    Bm
 There are B sides to every story
     G             A       Bm  A
 If you decide to have some fun.


                   D            A
 Just Take a bite -take a bite-
         Bm             A
 It's alright -it's alright-
             G                 Bb
 Taste the taste that sent all mothers
 C       D                A
 Giggling in sheer delight
         D            A
 Take a bite -take a bite-
         Bm             A
 It's alright -it's alright-
          G
 A little lovin' and some fruit to bake
  A                  E D   -4x-
 Life is a piece of...
     D
 ...cake.

    To Ely , Marcus, Raimund And Buddy. Mabuhay ang salarin!

    Idols kung hindi niyo pa nakikilala ang Diysr, simulan niyo na.
    Be sure of your eternal welfare. Is it heaven or hell.
    I don’t know if it is true but I better call your attention to Jesus Christ
    Thankyou e-heads for the music, mending broken hearts, for the encouragement,
    for the musicianship and for redeeming such fallen Rock music. Go and preach the word once again. Don’t forget I’ll just be around!

    – The Messiah-Jesus Christ

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
