Kid In A Candy Store

KID IN A CANDY STORE - Written by Carroll Bryant 




If you’re looking for some fun
I could give you some
If you’re looking for a good time
I could blow your mind
If you’re looking for a man
Baby, here I am
If you’re looking for some love
I got that magic touch
I couldn’t ask for anything more
Baby, I’m nothing but a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

If you’re looking for a fight
Girl, I can go all night
If you’re looking for some sin
I could work that in
If you’re looking for to scream
Then I’m the man of your dreams
If you’re wanting it hard
I can rip it apart
You might think that I’m a man-whore
But really I’m nothing but a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

I can’t come down from all of this
Looking around and all I see is
Sweet looking ladies everywhere

You know that I just want my share

If you’re looking for a heart
Well, I’m the place you can start
If you’re looking for it tough
I can get a little rough
If you’re looking to get stung
I got an eager tongue
If you’re looking for some charm
Then fall into my arms
Girls keep knocking down on my door
Looking for me, for the kid
The kid in a candy store
The kid in a candy store

I couldn’t ask for anything more
Baby, I’m nothing but a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

You might think that I’m a man-whore
But really all I am is a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

Girls, keep knocking down on my door
Looking for me, for the kid
The kid in a candy store
The kid in a candy store

I couldn’t ask for anything more
Baby, I’m nothing but a kid
A kid in a candy store
A kid in a candy store

San Diego

SAN DIEGO - Written by Carroll Bryant  



I can’t sleep
Knowing that you’re on my mind
I can’t eat
Never seem to find the time

When all I ever wanted was a dream come true
I had to go and bump into you

And now I’m living a lie
Telling myself that I just can’t survive
Always trying to hide the map of my life
That’s showing me where I should go
Knowing what I’ve should have always known
I need to be with you tonight somewhere in San Diego

I can’t think
There’s nothing else left inside
I just drink
Watching as it all goes by

When all I needed was a golden rule
You had to go and make me a fool

And now I have to realize
Telling myself that I just can’t surmise
Always trying to hide the make of my ride
That’s showing me where I should go
Knowing what I’ve should have always known
I want to be with you tonight somewhere in San Diego

Phone calls and letters are so nice
But they don’t make me feel better
And with my love on the line
I jump into that car of mine tonight

When all I ever wanted was a dream come true
I had to go and bump into you

You know what I say is true

And now I’m living a lie
Telling myself that I just can’t survive
Always trying to hide the map of my life
That’s showing me where I should go
Knowing what I’ve should have always known
I need to be with you tonight somewhere in San Diego

I driving down the map of my life
On a road to San Diego

I’m heading to San Diego

Tonight!

Somewhere In Mexico

SOMEWHERE IN MEXICO - Written by Carroll Bryant 



I’m drinking tequila with a girl named Maria
And dancing on the tip of my toes
Eating burritos with Jose and Tito
While the salt air is burning my nose
I’m living on sunshine, going straight out of my mind
It’s like being in a picture show
Trapped incognito with these pesky mosquito’s
Without a woman that I used know

I feel like a ragweed in lieu of a big sneeze
Harping of the good old days
Getting my tan on while the tourists have long gone
Parting in our separate ways
Drowning my sorrow in the words of tomorrow
Aching for some better shade
Sucking on sand crab like a delirious Arab
Under clouds of cherry marmalade

I woke up somewhere in Mexico
I got lost on some old whiskey Joe
It’s almost like I just don’t care
This old heart is bare
She took it somewhere I can’t go
Somewhere down in that old Mexico
It’s such a long way from Tobacco Road
It’s almost like a water slide
Without the good time
With people I don’t want to know
Somewhere down in Mexico

I’m watching the sunset and buddy I could bet
She’s watching with a different view
Taking in a full moon like a sweet Sunday monsoon
Making love to Mr. you know who
I couldn’t give a good damn so why am I so down man?
I can’t lie to tell the freaking truth
I haven’t any new plans for the sake of my weekend
There’s nothing here for me to do

I woke up somewhere in Mexico
I got lost on some old whiskey Joe
It’s almost like I just don’t care
This old heart is bare
She took it somewhere I can’t go
Somewhere down in that old Mexico
It’s such a long way from Tobacco Road
It’s almost like a water slide
Without the good time
With people I don’t want to know
Somewhere down in Mexico

In the early morning slow rain there is dew on my cold brain
And a daiquiri in my hand
With sounds of the ocean as I move in slow motion
My feet buried in the sand
Feeling so high strung from all of this ho-hum
I wish I was a different man
Senhoritas are singing in my head that is ringing
I wish they’d sing a different hymn

I woke up somewhere in Mexico
I got lost on some old whiskey Joe
It’s almost like I just don’t care
This old heart is bare
She took it somewhere I can’t go
Somewhere down in that old Mexico
It’s such a long way from Tobacco Road
It’s almost like a water slide
Without the good time
With people I don’t want to know
Somewhere down in Mexico
I got lost on some old whiskey Joe
It’s almost like I just don’t care
This old heart is bare
She took it somewhere I can’t go
Somewhere down in that old Mexico
It’s such a long way from Tobacco Road
It’s almost like a water slide
Without the good time
With people I don’t want to know
Somewhere down in Mexico
