She's so fine, she can't be beat me
She's got everything that I desire
Sets the summer sun on fire
I want Candy

That goes a little something like this
I always tried to be the fliest kid in the block
The popular one with the rising stock
So that's when I had this bright idea

You're always with me even though you're far away
Talkin' to you on my cell
Just the sound of your voice makes my heart melt
Oh girl, well it's true

And it goes a little something like this

Come on get up get up
I wanna make it bounce

Remember we'd be up all night
Talking 'til the morning light, yeah
Like the way it used to be
Those simple days, just you and me
