LyricsEdit

I was perched outside in the pouring rain
Trying to make myself a sail
Then I float to you, my darling
With the evening on my tail
Although not the most honest means of travel
It gets me there nonetheless
I'm a heartless man at worst, babe
And a helpless one at best

Darling, I'll bathe your skin
I'll even wash your clothes
Just give me some candy before I go
Oh darling, I'll kiss your eyes
And lay you down on your rug
Just give me some candy after my hug

Oh, I'm often fals explaining
But to her it plays out all the same
And although I'm left defeated
It gets held against my name
I know you got plenty at offer, baby
But I guess I've taken quite enough
I'm some stain there on your bedsheet
You're my diamond in the rough

Darling, I'll bathe your skin
I'll even wash your clothes
Just give me some candy before I go
Oh darling, I'll kiss your eyes
And lay you down on your rug
Just give me some candy after my hug

I know that the writing's on the wall
Darling, I'll bathe your skin
I'll even wash your clothes
Just give me some candy before I go
Oh darling, I'll kiss your eyes
And lay you down on your rug
Just give me some candy after my hug

Oh, and I'll be there waiting for ya
Oh, and I'll be there waiting for ya
And I'll be there waiting for ya
I'll be there waiting for ya, oh ooh ooh
