Sugar & Candy Lyrics

2 Skinnee J’s Lyrics


It was 5:45 on a Friday, a Friday
I was waiting for a train going my way, my way
I stood packed on a platform in Brooklyn
Where everybody's pushin but nobody's looking
So I got crushed in the rush for the subway
By the little old men tryin to shove me
Well I noticed her when I glanced sideways
And felt continents shifting inside me
I was dressed in my best polyester
And I could tell that the plastic impressed her
Cause she smiled as she eased up beside me
And then she said she had things to confide see
She said her dad ran away with Samantha
The middle-aged exotic dancer
So her mom had returned to her savior
And here's the advice that he gave her

He said, Reese's Pieces, Swedish Fish
Oodles of Skittles and red licorice
Marshmallow mints and a chocolate kiss
And it melts in your mouth like this
Take out your contacts and look at the screen
Take off your makeup and look at the sea
If you break your restrictions then you'll understand
Take your prescription of sugar and candy, oh yeah
We arrived there by way of the highway
After night drives with tradewinds and tirades
To a town bound by old guards and dry ducts
Bored I dragged my a** off the bus and hit the sidewalks
I stumbled on a lane name of my way
And got caught in the street by treading lightly
The fish pa**ed me by lead by fishhooks
I hit pop flies and caught their strange looks
But one figure struggled just to stand there
He was a one legged man in his wheelchair
I struck out a course for his landing
I put out a hand and then he grabbed it
He told a lifetime of boxcars and byways
Of the times of stockyards and chain gangs and two legs
He offered his advice for a penny
And for that small price here's what he gave me

Take out your contacts and look at the screen
Take off your makeup and look at the sea
If you break your restrictions then you'll understand
Take your prescription of sugar and candy, oh yeah
