Verse 2:

They say candy is sweet
But it just can't compete with
You baby
You've got everything I need
And nobody can please like
You do, baby
And who believes all my wildest dreams
And my craziest schemes will come true

[repeat chorus]

A little ray of sunshine
E B
A little bit of soul
B
Add just a touch of magic

You got the greatest thing since rock 'n' roll

[repeat chorus (2X); end cold]
