Elton John - "Candy By The Pound" lyrics

Well I'm keeping off the streets since you came to town Since you claimed my heart from the lost and found I have said goodbye to my fooling 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 neighbourhood 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
