Gumdrops

When the day just seems so bitter
And I feel so incomplete
My mood is something sour
Got a need for something sweet.

You’re always there to bring me home
You know just what to say
Baby, you’re the salt of the earth
And now I savor every day

Chorus:
Cause, baby, you’re my gumdrop, gumdrop, yeah.
In every single way
You brighten up my day
You’re my gumdrop, gumdrop, yeah.
And I’ll never give you up
Cause you’re my gumdrop, baby, yeah.

Looking forward to seeing you
All throughout the day
And when we kiss it leaves a taste
I could never brush away

And my love for you is just so strong
Couldn’t cut it with a knife
And you’re stuck on me like I’m stuck on you
For the rest of my life

Chorus

Instrumental

Chorus (a cappella)

Baby, you’re my gumdrop, gumdrop, yeah.
I’ll be your boba tea
If you’ll always stay with me
Cause you’re my gumdrop, gumdrop, yeah.
And I’ll never give you up
Never let you down
Cause you’re my gumdrop, baby, yeah!

Tried to write a meaningless pop song, but got hung up on being clever. Still, MAXIMUM CUTE! SO SACCHARINE IT’LL GIVE RATS CANCER!
