Roxette – Original Version 3:16

Right at the front door
I recognized the perfume
The scent was perfect in the dusk by the moon
There must be many ways
To ask her to my room
Why didn’t I dare?

Well every hour
I try to get something done
Out on the weekend
When I’m just having some fun
I’m winding up with none
Just zeroes, no 1’s
Just space with no air

I get: “Bye-bye baby-baby bye baby-baby bye-bye…”

Real sugar
I don’t wanna climb the walls
Real sugar
That’s what I want or none at all
Real sugar
Sweet as a sweet can be
Real sugar
That’s what I want and what I need
That’s what I need

Yeah every Friday
I’m getting ready to roll
I want her blue eyes start saying “Hi” and “Hello”
But I can always tell she’d rather be alone
With some other guy

I get: “Bye-bye baby-baby bye baby-baby bye-bye…”
Real sugar
I don’t wanna climb no walls
Real sugar
That’s what I want or none at all
Real sugar
Sweet as a sweet can be
Real sugar
That’s what I want and what I need
Real sugar
I don’t wanna climb the walls
Real sugar
That’s what I want or none at all
Real sugar
Sweet as a sweet can be
Real sugar
That’s what you’ve got so what’s for me?
Hey what’s for me?

I turn myself in turn turn turn
I turn myself out outside and in
I turn myself in turn turn turn
I turn myself out outside and in
Real sugar real sugar

I get: “Bye-bye baby-baby bye baby-baby bye-bye…”
Real sugar
I don’t wanna climb no walls
Real sugar
That’s what I want or none at all
Real sugar
Sweet as a sweet can be
Real sugar
That’s what I want and what I need
Real sugar
I don’t wanna climb the walls
Real sugar
That’s what I want or none at all
Real sugar
Sweet as a sweet can be
Real sugar
That’s what you’ve got so what’s for me?
Gimme gimme real sugar
Gimme gimme real sugar
Real sugar
I don’t wanna climb no walls
