CANDY'S BOY

Version 2


In Candy's room there are pictures of her saviour on the wall
But to get to Candy's room you gotta walk the darkness of Candy's hall
Strangers from the city call my baby's number and they bring Candy toys
But when I come knocking she smiles pretty, she knows tonight I'm gonna be Candy's boy

Well in the olden days when the Mongolian gangs roamed out on Route 9
We'd go riding in the rain, running south, way down through the pines
Weekends in the sun in that cheap motel down by the dynamo
We loved each other 'till there was nothing left and drove that old car as hard and fast as she would go
Well I got a cold wind blowing in behind me and you
But Candy's got a man who takes care of her better than I'd do
Alright

Well there's machines and there's fire waiting for us on the edge of town*
And there's some boys for hire and there waiting to blow me and Candy down
And that's alright cause they can't touch us now babe it seems
Cause I know that I will forever be Candy's boy
Mmmmm, I will forever be Candy's boy
Alright

Let's do the intro

Once more
