The King Cake Baby

As January 6th approaches
A cautious excitement fills the air...
For all throughout New Orleans
Arrive the King Cakes with Mardi Gras flare...

As the King Cake boxes arrive
At schools and offices all around...
We cut the King Cakes and sink our teeth
Into a delicious sugary mound...

As purple, gold and green sugars
Sparkle majestically in the light...
The buttery cinnamon flavor
Makes our tastebuds dance in delight...

Then we all begin to wonder
As our mouths water and hope that maybe...
We might just be the lucky one
To receive the King Cake Baby...

For whoever receives the Baby
As the tradition has always been...
It’s your turn to bring a new King Cake
Tomorrow morning when you come in...

So enjoy your Mardi Gras season
As the King doth often command...
Always love your King Cake Baby
And Happy Mardi Gras throughout the land!
