You're As Sweet As Sugar on a Stick

by Barry Louis Polisar

You're as sweet as sugar on a stick,
Licorice on a gum drop, lickety split.
When you smile the whole world opens right up.
When I get a little bit of you, I can't get enough.

My heart starts pounding when I kiss you on the lips.
Like water down a drain, dropping drip by drip.
Whenever I am with you, I feel at home.
Gonna run to you like ice cream down a cone.

When your hands in mine, I'm bounding 'round and 'round.
My hearts doin' cartwheels, upside down.
I'm singing so softly in a voice so sweet.
Standin' on my head with lightnin' in my feet.

I'm jumping off the ground and sailin' round the sun.
Flying back to you like the river that runs.
Laughing and clapping and sitting by your side,
Bouncing up and down on a roller coaster ride.
