SWEETER THAN CANDY (Carl Perkins) Carl Perkins - 1984 With a dirty nose pressed hard against the window Of a candy store one day A ragged little girl stood barefoot While the hurried crowd went madly on their way One lady stopped and smiled; she said, "I think I'll go inside, And would you like to come along with me?" Then behind that dirty face, she saw a smile that made her day They just don't make candy that sweet Then she bought some shoes for her little feet Then dressed her up fit for a queen And with a smile that came from heaven She said, "Ma'am, I sure do thank you" With an angel twinkle in her eyes She said, "Ma'am, I sure do thank you And Boy, I sure look pretty" And then she asked, "Are you God's wife?" Are we walkin' too fast to see A barefoot child on a lonely street Are we rushin' by the ones in need Or will some child play for you and me With a smile that came from heaven She said, "Ma'am", I sure do love you" With an angel twinkle in her eyes She said, "Ma'am, I sure do thank you And boy, I sure look pretty" And then she asked, "Are you God's wife?" She said, "Ma'am, I sure do thank you And boy, I sure look pretty" And then she asked, "Are you God's wife?" (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen, Jon R., Mel Priddle - July 2004)
