In BE slang, both "big bucks" - cake is more desirable than bread -
and sex. I've wondered about the tune, "Cut The Cake," for dekkids. If
it had been recorded not by The Average *White* Band, but by an
average black band, I'd "know a story" - be aware of all the nuances,
double-entendre, in this case - as we say in the 'hood.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
