SWEETS FOR MY SWEET

Musik & tekst: Doc Pomus / Mort Shuman

Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey,
Your first sweet kiss thrilled me so.
Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey,
I’ll never ever let you go.

If you wanted that star that shines so brightly
To match the stardust in your eye,
Darling I would chase that bright star nightly
And try to steal it from the sky –
And I would bring…

Sweets for my sweet…

If you wanted a king to keep you smilin’
I’d tell the sandman you were blue,
And I’d ask him to keep that sand a-pilin’
until your dreams had all come true –
And I would bring…

Sweets for my sweet…

And if you wanted a love to last forever,
Darling, I would send my love your way.
And my love’d not only last forever –
But forever and a day –
And I would bring…

Sweets for my sweet…
