LyricsEdit

Take a ride on the sugartrain
Take a ride on the sugartrain
Take a ride on the sugartrain
Take a ride on the sugartrain

Get up get dressed, have nothing to impress
Everybody make a chain, this train
Is the cheapest and the best
It's better than real, under those wheels, north, south, east and west
You are the station on the Candybar Express

Take a ride on the sugartrain, etc.

Sin City is pretty and the dirt looks just like money
Everything's cool, it's a loving school
And the tools are milk and honey
Don't be deceived, you better believe
That sugar is the best
You are the station on the Candybar Express

There's sugar to sell, money to buy
Got heaven and hell in a single eye Get wise, capitalize
Get blood on your hands and have an alibi
Get blood on your hands and have an alibi

Take a ride on the sugartrain, etc.

Bow down to the sacred cow
Or you'll never know what you missed
Everybody say "yeah," say "thanks"
That songs like this exist
Be a junkie for love
Be a sucker for success
You are the station on the Candybar Express

Take a ride on the sugartrain, etc
