lyrics

As if you were dipped in honey, drenched in marmalade
Splenda, Equal and Nutrasweet stirred in lemonade
Cinnamon in powder form is so hard to choke down
But put it on a sticky bun? It's the sweetest thing around

I was rotten and I was bruised
The bad apple that ruined all the other fruit
That's all forgotten and that's thanks to you
I'm better as the bitter half of you

Slathered in preservatives, covered in pesticides
You've gotta cover your bases if you wanna become ripe
A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
Unless you're a diabetic, that cliche is sound

I was rotten and I was bruised
The bad apple that ruined all the other fruit
That's all forgotten and that's thanks to you
I'm better as the bitter half of you

Until I met the strands of your twisted DNA?
I wouldn't have known sweetness if it slapped me in the face

Your mother might tell you that you can't fill up on sweets
But your mother is wrong, just look at what it's done for me
I wasn't sure at first but thankfully I kept my faith
Even a broken clock is right at least twice a day

I was rotten and I was bruised
The bad apple that ruined all the other fruit
That's all forgotten and that's thanks to you
I'm better as the bitter half of you
I'm better as the bitter half of you
