Your sugar Yes, please
Won’t you come and put it down on me I’m right here, ’cause I need Little love and little sympathy
Hey now call it a split ’cause you know that you will
Oh you bite your friend like chocolate
Cold, cold water, bring me around Now my feet won’t touch the ground Cold, cold water, whatcha say It’s such, it’s such a perfect day It’s such a perfect day
I remember We were walking up to strawberry swing I can’t wait ’til the morning Wouldn’t want to change a thing
I Want Candy

When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine That’s amore
