You ain't got no halo
Hanging over your head

You ain't got no wings
That you can spread

You ain't got no harp so you can play me a song so sweet (Oh yeah)
You ain't got no golden slippers on your pretty little feet (Oh yeah)

Oh, but to me you're an angel
To me you're an angel
You're not an ordinary girl because you're an angel to me, yeah

Angel, Baby

Now you don't have sugar (Sugar)
Sprinkled all over you (No sugar all over you)
You're not made of peppermint ew
(Peppermint) through and through (Not peppermint through and through)

You don't come in assorted flavors(uh huh)like a package of Charms (Oh yeah)
And you won't stain my shirt (uh huh) if you melt in my arms (Oh yeah)

Oh, but to me you're candy
To me you're candy
You're not an ordinary girl because you're candy to me, yeah

Candy, Baby

Now I haven't carved (I haven't carved)
Our initials on trees (Our initials on trees)
You might not know all the facts (All the facts)
About the birds and the bees (About the birds & the bees)

You don't send me sweet love letters with the smell of perfume (Oh yeah)
My photograph may not be plastered all over your room (Oh yeah)

Oh oh oh, but to me you're a sweetheart
To me you're a sweetheart
You're not an ordinary girl, yes you're a sweetheart to me, yeah

Sweet, sweet, Baby

You're not an ordinary girl, yes you're a sweetheart to me, yeah

Sweet, sweet, Baby
