(Musixmatch)

Sugar

Ah, honey, honey

You are my candy girl

And you got me wanting you

Honey

Ah, sugar, sugar

You are my candy girl

And you got me wanting you

I just can’t believe

The loveliness of loving you

I just can’t believe it’s true

I just can’t believe

The wonder of this feeling, too

I just can’t believe it’s true

Ah, sugar

Ah, honey, honey

You are my candy girl

And you got me wanting you

Oh, honey

Ah, sugar, sugar

You are my candy girl

And you got me wanting you

When I kissed you, girl

I knew how sweet a kiss could be

(I know how sweet a kiss can be)

Like the summer sunshine

Pour your sweetness over me

(Pour your sweetness over me)

Oh, sugar

Pour a little sugar on it, honey

Pour a little sugar on it, baby

Make your life so sweet, yeah, yeah, yeah

Pour a little sugar on it, oh yeah

Pour a little sugar on it, honey

Pour a little sugar on it, baby

I’m gonna make your life so sweet, yeah, yeah, yeah

Pour a little sugar on it, honey

Ah, sugar

Ah-ah-ah, honey, honey

You are my candy girl

And you got me wanting you

Oh

Honey (honey, sugar, sugar)

Sugar sugar (honey, honey, sugar, sugar)

You are my candy girl
