Welcome to the Songs of the Season music hop! 
You're invited to join us every day from December 10-25, to enjoy a virtual round of caroling.
You can visit another blog each day to find another wonderful music selection, handpicked by a great host.
Here's my selection for your enjoyment!

YouTube Link (If you can't see the above video or want to go straight to YouTube to watch!)
Title: "Holiday Lament (The Fruitcake Song)"
Artist: From the original holiday musical revue THAT TIME OF THE YEAR
Available at: Amazon Barnes and NobleBest Buy, etc. on THAT TIME OF YEAR Official Off-Broadway Cast Recording.  I personally first heard the song on the Broadway Cares Annual CAROLS FOR A CURE (Vol. VI) CD, as sung by the cast of Broadway's THE LION KING, available here (and tax-deductible if purchased straight from Broadway Cares!)
This particular version is one I found floating around on YouTube.  It features singers Kerri Jill Garbis, Erin Maguire & Bridget Beirne from the original Off-Broadway Cast.  Enjoy!
I think this song is just hysterical!  I've loved it since the moment I first heard it and have to play it every year!  It also makes me feel really bad for fruitcakes!

(I couldn't find the lyrics online, so I listened to the song and typed this up myself.  I ignored the gibberish parts.  Sorry if I misheard anything!)

Nobody likes a fruitcake!
Nobody likes a fruitcake,
We’re feeling pretty blue!
We see the looks you give us
At these holiday events.
We know when we’re not wanted,
Come on, we’re not that dense!

Nobody likes a fruitcake!
Nobody likes a fruitcake,
They just give us away.
The Dawsons got me as a gift,
They gave me to the Glicks.
I’ve been passed from house to house since 1986.

Everybody loves to eat fruit.
Everybody loves to eat cake.
So why is putting them together such a horrible mistake?

Nobody likes a fruitcake,
No, no, no, no!
Nobody likes a fruitcake,
It’s a lifetime of woe.
I just don’t understand it,
We’re fruit and nuts and rum.
And I’m the biggest seller in the catalogue I’m from…

People like blueberry muffins.
People like apple pie.
People like strawberry shortcake,
So why won’t they give us a try?

Nobody likes a fruitcake!
Nobody likes a fruitcake,
We all need therapy. :(
It drives a cake bananas,
When a person hates her guts.
No wonder all our name has come to mean
Someone who’s nuts

Every time they pass us on we get more disconcerted.
For once we’d like to be dessert,
Not deserted!
No, no, no!

Nobody likes a fruitcake,
Even a slice that’s small...
Nobody likes a fruitcake...
Nobody at all!
No, no!
