First Line: Well, don't you see? I had a box of candy
Last Line: Has it got to be always either one or the other?
Subject(s): Love - Complaints


Well, don't you see? I had a box of candy,
And I tore it open, and it looked so fine,
And tasted wonderful! And so I et it,
As fast as I could eat. And when it was gone
I was so sick I couldn't hold my head up.

So the next time I got a box, I says,
"I'll save this one, and eat it little by little;
I'll make it last this time, and I won't get sick."
But mice got in, and ants, and it was ruined.

Ain't there no way you can do with a box of candy?
And suppose it ain't candy, but bein' in love I mean
Oh, has it always got to be too fast,
So that it's gone right-off, and leaves you sick,
Or else it drags along and gets all stale?
Has it got to be always either one or the other?
