LIVIN LA VIDA COCOA

LIVIN LA VIDA COCOA

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

Just a little chocolate fun... :D

"

 

It’s all full of sugar sweetness, dark confectionery delights

Love to devour it in the morning, afternoon, and nights

Colored bronze, mahogany, hazel too, tis über candy galore

Flavored with almonds, peanuts, carmel, dried fruit, and more

 

It’ll make you wear loose fitting clothes and smile in the rain

It’ll make you feel tingles on your tongue and leave the sweetest stain

Like a sugarplum to your brain. Come on!

 

[Chorus}

 

Outside, inside out I’m livin la vida cocoa

You’ll crunch and slurp and say I’m livin la vida cocoa

Its flavor’s so rich and fine, its color the deepest mocha

You’ll crunch and slurp and say I’m livin la vida cocoa

Livin la vida cocoa, Come on!

I’m livin la vida cocoa!

 

Ate some truffles in New York City there in Times Square

Gobbled a Snickers bar and felt so good, I do declare!

Devoured some strawberries dipped right next to the champagne

Once you’ve chomped a bite or two you’ll never be the same

 

[Sing it with me now!]

Author's Note

An owl on the moon
I rarely eat chocolate (goes straight to my hips) but I do love singing about it! (I say all of this tongue placed firmly in cheek…) My condolences to Ricky Martin for messin’ with this! Original song, if you prefer music to chocolate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p47fEXGabaY

very clever!!!! I love chocolate and like you said can't indulge very often as it definitely goes to my hips as well. the nectar of the gods is what it was called before in ancient times. and I think Ricky Martin may not be amused ha ha but I was!!!! you could do a weird al yancovich version lol good poem/lyric I see you had fun with it lol

Yes, this should be the theme-song for a candy shop that specializes in chocolate! @[email protected]
