  • Lyrics
  • She floats like a swan
    Grace on the water
    Lips like sugar
    Lips like sugar
    Just when you think you've caught her
    She glides across the water
    She calls for you tonight
    To share this moonlight

    You'll flow down her river
    She'll ask you and you'll give her
    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses
    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses

    She knows what she knows
    I know what she's thinking
    Sugar kisses
    Sugar kisses
    Just when you think she's yours
    She's flown to other shores
    To laugh at how you break
    And melt into this lake

    You'll flow down her river
    But you'll never give her
    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses
    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses

    She'll be my mirror
    Reflect what I am
    A loser and a winner
    The king of Siam
    And my Siamese twin
    Alone on the river
    Mirror kisses
    Mirror kisses

    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses
    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses

    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses
    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses

    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kisses
    Lips like sugar
    Sugar kissesWriter/s: IAN STEPHEN MCCULLOCH, LESLIE THOMAS PATTINSON, PETE DE FREITAS, WILLIAM SERGEANT
