Sweet like chocolate 
You're sweet like chocolate 
Finding your way in the dark 
Ain't so hard when you're close to my heart 
You are there when I'm feeling alone 
All I need is for you to come home 

You're sweet like chocolate boy 
Sweet like chocolate 
You bring me so much joy 
You're sweet like chocolate boy 

Trust is the lock is the key 
There's no doubt that your love's all for me 
You are sweet on the tip of my tongue 
You are warm like the rays of the sun 

You're sweet like chocolate boy 
Sweet like chocolate 
You bring me so much joy 
You're sweet like chocolate boy 

You're sweet like 
Da da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da da da da 

Knowing you're there every day 
Makes me high in my own special way 
I am calm in the face of your love 
Holding you is a gift from above 

You're sweet like chocolate boy 
Sweet like chocolate 
You bring me so much joy 
You're sweet like chocolate boy 

You're sweet like 
Da da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da da da da 

You're sweet like 
Da da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da da da da
