Octet - Candy Lyrics

2019 A Chamber Choir Musical
Octet the Musical - Candy Lyrics


Music and lyrics by Dave Malloy.

HENRY:
All the games I like have candy in them
All the games I like from lap to pad
Swedish fish and red hots
Sour bears and choc-chocs
All the candy never stops
Dayglo go-go underground
No one else around
No one there to hurt me

HENRY & CHORUS:
All the games I like have candy in them
All the games I like from lap to pad
Swedish fish and red hots
Sour bears and choc-chocs
All the candy never stops
Dayglo go-go underground
No one else around
No one there to hurt me

HENRY:
I play my candy anywhere and anyhow

ALL:
No one around can stop me

HENRY:
When I'm with candy
I don't have to think about

ALL:
All of the sound about me

HENRY:
I play in my bed from the minute
That my head
Cycles on
On the john
Take my meds
In the bath
Dry my hand off if it's wet
In the kitchen
On my email someone's bitchin'
But I don't care
I just stare at the glare
On the street lookin'
Down at my feet
In the rain
On the train
In the crowd
In the loud loud loud loud

ALL:
Candy candy
No one's gonna bug me

HENRY:
At work I do it sneaky

HENRY & WOMEN:
Candy time
All the time

HENRY:
I smile, pretend to listen
But my mind is on a mission

ALL:
Watch the numbers go up
Watch the numbers go up
Watch the numbers go up, up, up

HENRY & ED:
Five in a row and a golden grandma
Swap my gun for a stolen chainsaw
Stealth my build, kill that beast
Fill the map, dragons in the east

ALL:
Puzzle puzzle random random
Shiny surprise
I did it!

All the games I like have candy in them
All the games I like from lap to pad
Swedish fish and red hots
Sour bears and choc-chocs
All the candy never stops
Dayglo go-go underground
No one else around
No one there to hurt me

HENRY, KARLY & PAULA:
I am a part of the small and rabid
Online communities for each game I play

HENRY & WOMEN:
Some of them are wizards at mathematics
Did you know how much mathematics
You can get involved in in the games I play?

HENRY & MARVIN:
So much calculation
Done in isolation

HENRY & PAULA:
On a dark nicknamed spreadsheet
Saved in a hidden folder

ALL:
We share tips and tricks
On how to make the candy sweeter
Some use javascripts
But I think that they are cheaters
My candy is pure
And I'm so insecure
But they'll never ever know
How dark it gets

HENRY:
Like when I get a few days off
Sometimes I just don’t bathe
I barely leave my bed
I misbehave
I don’t brush my teeth

ALL:
Eatin' nothing but chips and pop
For three whole days

All the games I like have candy in them
All the games I like from lap to pad
Swedish fish and red hots
Sour bears and choc-chocs
All the candy never stops
Dayglo go-go underground
No one else around
No one there to hurt me

HENRY:
I know that candy rots my teeth
I thought it was a phase
But now it seems that I've gone crazy
And I know that it’s too late
Too too tooth decay
My mind decay
And they never grow back
No they never grow back

I am merely coasting through the world
It's just another window
Idling in the background
There's a brand new level every day
This I can accomplish
This jacks my fix right now

CHORUS:
Ah…

HENRY:
I suspect deep down
I don't care if I die
How else could I
Be wasting so much time
On this sweet fluorescent smiling brainrot
Stupid and dryeye poison

CHORUS:
Yeah
