My old lady she's so sweet and fine
I can't help wanting her kisses all the time
I run to meet her like a kid with a dollar
To the corner candy store
It's what I'm livin' for
But I want more than your candy kisses

She starts movin' I say "Honey please"
(Back-up vocal "I don't want your kisses")
I ain't foolin', you know it isn't right to tease
(Back-up vocal "I don't need your kisses")
I tell her "Sugar you're a true fine lover."
"You're as sweet as cherry pie"
But no matter how I try
I can't get high
On your candy kisses

I don't want our love to stop
(Back-up vocal-"Don't stop it")
If it should stop
(Back-up vocal-"Don't stop it")
My heart would break
If the sun should get to hot
(Back-up vocal-"Don't stop it")
It's gonna melt away the icing on our cake

Candy kisses knock me off my feet
(Back-up vocal "I don't want your kisses")
Fill me up but leave me feelin' incomplete
(Back-up vocal "I don't need your kisses")
Fancy wrappin's and well-made trappin's
Will lead me to your door
What I'm hungry for
Is so much mooore...than your candy kisses

("Candy kisses, candy candy kisses")
("Candy kisses, candy candy kisses"

Candy kisses knock me off my feet
Fill me up but leave me incomplete
Since your wrappin's lead me to your door
It's not the only kind of love that I'm lookin' for
Candy kisses ain't enough for me
Got to have all your lovin' if you're gonna stay with me

("Candy kisses, keep your candy kisses")

Candy, candy, candy kisses ain't enough for me
Got to have all your love if you're gonna stay with me

("Candy kisses, keep your candy kisses")

Candy, candy, candy kisses ain't enough for me
Got to have all your love if you're gonna stay with me

("Candy kisses, keep your candy kisses")

Candy, candy, candy kisses ain't enough for me
Got to have all your love if you're gonna stay with me

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."
