If you think candy's sweet
There's a girl you ought to meet
Sugar drips from her lips
When she sighs

But the love light that lies
Within my baby's eyes
How it lies, how it lies
How it lies

She has style, she has charms
And a pair of loving arms
That I'm dying
To try on for size

But the love light that lies
Within my baby's eyes
How it lies, how it lies
How it lies

Oh, her name tops the list of every florist
Her beaus stand ten deep in line
With all of the trees in the forest
Why should I be the only clinging vine?

Oh, there's heartbreak in store
Where the one that you adore
Is a devil
In the angel disguise

But the love light that lies
Is the love light that dies
How it lies, how it lies
How it lies
