Demon Fruitcake We're marching, we're marching, our brave little band Against Demon Rum we will all take our stand, cho: Away, away with rum, by Gum! It's the song of the Salvation Army. Don't never eatr fruitcake, it's chock full of rum And one little bite puts a man on the bum. The man who eats fruitcake leads a terrible life He mistreats his children and he beats his wife. Oh can you immagine an awfuller sight Than a man who eats fruitcake until he gets tight. The man who eats fruitcake goes down to his death With the odor of raisins and rum on his breath. The man who eats fruitcake goes down in disgrace As he rolls in the gutter with crumbs on his face. Note: This was in circulation in the mid-40s. RG RG
