Lyrics / Paroles

Michael
You take sugar and spice
Everything nice
And you got a little girl, yeah, yeah

You take snakes and snails
Some puppy dog tails
And you got a little boy, yeah, yeah

That’s what love is made of
That’s what love is made of
Snakes, snails, puppy dog tails
Sugar and spice, everything nice
Yeah, yeah, all right

Something else to do

You take a walk by the sea
Two hearts on a tree
And you got a little gladness, yeah, yeah

Blue eyes cry
Two hearts say goodbye
And you got a little sadness, yeah, yeah

That’s what love is made of
That’s what love is made of
Hearts say goodbye
Eyes start to cry
Hearts on a tree
Walk by a sea
Snakes, snails, puppy dog tails
Sugar and spice, everything nice
Yeah, yeah, all right

One more thing

You take a cruel word spoken
Pride gets broken
And you got a little break up, yeah, yeah

You take a little bit of soul
Sweet words being told
And you got a little make up, yeah, yeah

That’s what love is made of
That’s what love is made of
Words being told
With a little bit of soul
Pride gets broken
Cruel words spoken
Hearts say goodbye
Eyes start to cry
Hearts on a tree
Walk by the sea
Snakes, snails, puppy dog tails
Sugar and spice, everything nice
Yeah, yeah, all right
Listen everybody
Yeah, yeah, all right
