"I Want Candy" as written by and Benji Madden Joel Madden....
She's going out to forget they were together
All that time he was taking her for granted
She wants to see if there's more
Than he gave she's looking for

He calls her up
He's trippin' on the phone now
He doesn't want her out there
And alone now

He knows she's movin' it
Knows she's using it
Now he's losing it, she don't care

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Feel the beat now
If you've got nothing left
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Back it up now
You've got a reason to live
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Feelin' good now
Don't be afraid to get down
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

He was always giving her attention
Looking hard to find the things she mentioned
He was dedicated but most suckers hate it
That girl was fine but she didn't appreciate him

She calls him up
She's trippin' on the phone now
He had to get up
And he ain't comin' home now

He's tryin' to forget her
That's how we come with him
When he first met her
When they first got together

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Feel the beat now
If you got nothing left
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Back it up now
You got a reason to live
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Feelin' good now
Don't be afraid to get down
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

To the beat, to the beat, to the beat
You got nothing to lose
Don't be afraid to get down

We break up, it's something that we do now
Everyone has got to do it sometime
It's okay, let it go
Get out there and find someone

It's too late to be trippin' on the phone here
Get off the wire, know everything is good here
Stop what you're doin', you don't wanna ruin
The chance that you got to find a new one

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Feel the beat now
If you got nothing left
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Back it up now
You got a reason to live
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Feelin' good now
Don't be afraid to get down
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

No, no
Now you know what to do
So come on, get up, girl

    General CommentGood Charlotte did a good job and i love them but im not to fond of the song, i'd have to agree that its not the best song to cover...everytime i hear it i think of Aaron Carter...

    General Commentthis is a song about how benjis real life obsession with sodomy. thats sticking things in asses kids. well, benji wrote about his love for sticking candy canes up his ass and somehow in the process, he wrote this great ballad of love for ass pleasuring candy canes and butt sex.

    also, he enjoys sticking pop rocks in his poop shoot and pouring coke all over them, he just loves the sensation....

    General Commenta great cover... gives the song more edge than the poppy version by Aaron carter who just gets more and more annoying everytime he decides to pop up in tyhe music scene again
