Song Lyric Sunday – Sugar/Candy

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/31/17

***

For SLS Helen has asked for songs about sugar and candy. Thanks, Helen!

There are so many good ones to choose from, so I couldn’t resist, and chose two. The first one I heard lots of times on the radio back then. The second one I heard lots of times, and saw the video since MTV aired it a lot.

Anyway, they are both good, so hope you enjoy listening to them. 🙂

There’s a crazy little shack beyond the tracks
And everybody calls it the sugar shack
Well, its just a coffeehouse and its made out of wood
Espresso coffee tastes mighty good
That’s not the reason why I’ve got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack.

There’s this cute little girlie, she’s a-working there
A black leotard and her feet are bare
I’m gonna drink a lot of coffee, spend a little cash
Make that girl love me when I put on some trash
You can understand why I’ve got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack, yeah honey
To that sugar shack, whoa yes
To that sugar shack

Now that sugar shack queen is a-married to me, yeah yeah
We just sit around and dream of those old memories
Ah, but one of these days I’m gonna lay down tracks
In the direction of that sugar shack
Just me and her yes were gonna go back
To that sugar shack,
Whoa uh oh
O that sugar shack, yeah honey
To our sugar shack

Yea, yea, yea, our sugar shack

Love is like a (bomb)
(Bomb)
(Bomb)
Love is like a (bomb)
(I’m hot)

Love is like a bomb baby c’mon get it on
Livin’ like a lover with a radar phone
Lookin’ like a tramp, like a video vamp
Demolition woman, can I be your man? (Your man)

Razzle ‘n’ a dazzle ‘n’ a flash a little light
Television lover, baby, go all night
Sometime, anytime, sugar me sweet
Little miss ah innocent sugar me, yeah, yeah

So c’mon, take a bottle, shake it up
Break the bubble, break it up

Pour some sugar on me
Ooh in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C’mon fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
Ooh I can’t get enough
I’m hot, sticky sweet
From my head to my feet, yeah

Listen, red light, yellow light, green-a-light go
Crazy little woman in a one man show
Mirror queen, mannequin, rhythm of love
Sweet dream, saccharine, loosen up (loosen up) loosen up

You gotta squeeze a little, tease a little please a little more
Easy operator come a knockin’ on my door
Sometime, anytime, sugar me sweet
Little miss innocent sugar me, yeah, yeah
Give a little more, take a bottle, shake it up
Break the bubble, break it up

Pour some sugar on me
Ooh in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C’mon and fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
Oh, I can’t get enough
I’m hot, sticky sweet
From my head to my feet yeah

You got the peaches, I got the cream
Sweet to taste, saccharine
Cause I’m hot, (say what), sticky sweet
From my head, (my head) to my feet
Do you take sugar? One lump or two?

Take a bottle (take a bottle)
Shake it up (shake it up)
Break the bubble (break it up)
Break it up (break it up)
Pour some sugar on me
Ooh in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C’mon fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
Ooh I can’t get enough
Pour some sugar on me
Ooh in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
Get it, come get it
Pour your sugar on me, oh
Pour some sugar on me yeah, sugar me

    • Thanks! They are pretty different, I suppose because of the many years apart that they were recorded. I like all kinds of music, though, no matter when I first heard them. 🙂
