   Year : 1985

Well I'm keeping off the streets since you came to town.
Since you claimed my heart from the lost and found.
I - I - I have said 'goodbye' to my foolin' around.
Now you and me, babe, we got candy by the pound.
You and me, babe, we got candy by the pound.

Well I never knew it could feel so good.
Be the king of the hill in my neighborhood.
Rain on my roof - what a sweet sound.
Oh, with you underneath it's like candy by the pound.
With you underneath it's like candy by the pound.

You can tell everybody that this girl of mine
is sweeter than the grapes hanging from the vine.
Love like wine honey drinking till I drown.
Keep it coming baby like candy by the pound.

Oh no, what's come over me? If I am dreaming then let me sleep.
Oh wow - I'm heaven bound. Love is getting sweeter than candy by the pound.

Now I'm ducking in the alley of common sense.
Hiding from the claws of my old girl friend.
She's screaming murder beating my door down.
While I'm right behind it I'm eating candy by the pound.
I'm right behind it eating I'm candy by the pound.
