Lyrics

Candy Store

I'm on your way home from school
I look like a normal house but don't be fooled
By the red brick or the planter on the stoop
Look straight at the lit up sign
And you'll see exactly who I am
That's right, your corner candy store

You've been a good little boy today
So you deserve a treat, now right away
Don't you want something for your aching sweet tooth?
In each plastic bin
is something so delicious, your invitation
in here your corner candy store

That's right I can see you licking your lips
Step right up let me show to bliss
I've got licorice, and chocolate galore
Why don't you have a bit more?

To get you feeling real good
why not something to drink? Get it into you!
I've got colas all flavours, colours and sizes too!
You say you want extra kick?
Grab a drumstick or an ice-cream sandwich
All kinds, at the corner candy store

That's right I can see you licking your lips
Walk down the aisle, let me give you a kiss
I've got licorice, and chocolate galore
Why don't you have a bit more?

What? A tummyache?
It's not my fault, for goodness sake!
I wouldn't dream of taking candy from a babe
Just wait a short while
and you'll hunger for some more of the fine white devil
I'm here, your corner candy store
Always here for you, your corner candy store
Your corner candy store
Your corner candy store
