sugar and spice lyrics – madness

i thought i’d seen you round before
then you came knocking on my door
you were only 16 years
and yet you took away all of my fears

i held your hand and then i knew
i was the one and only one for you
we were married at 21
expecting any day our first born son

yeah yeah yeah
and that sugar and spice
everything was so nice
now it’s all come undone
has it’s course just been run

we bought a flat in golders green
a second hand fridge and a washing machine
you found a job in marks and spencers
filling shelves sure it was pretty senseless

but every day at a half past five
i’d be waiting at the station for you to arrive
i’d take your hand and walk you home
and if it rained we’d shelter in the hippodrome

yeah yeah yeah
and that sugar and spice
everything was so nice
now it’s just not the same
it’s bitterness and pain

oh it’s over my head
and far too much has been said
tell me what has become
you were my number one

oooooh
that sugar and spice
everything nice
or just castles of sand
and very thin ice
