Oh my sweetheart, charming and eloquent,
Honey pie, sugar plum, with sweet raisins,
So soft like cotton candy that just melts,
My apple pie with ice cream and cherry.
Sweet as glazed donuts filled with apricots,
Tasty sugar dumpling in lentil soup,
Delish as juicy mangoes freshly picked
My shaking jello mixed with nice yogurt.
Sweet lips like honey with a dripping comb,
Such chanting bedroom eyes enticing me,
Your crimson cheeks symbolizing fragrance
Warm passionate breath stimulates my soul.
Such grander is my honey suckle doll,
Her charm turns me into a marshmallow!
