I Can’t Help Myself

Child, Eating, Cake, Yummy, CherryAs someone who loves broccoli and loves cheese (despite my dairy intolerance) I am contemplating trying to wangle myself an invite over to Jim’s house for dinner. Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of both “Green Cheese” and also A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme:

BOUNTY/DESSERT/EAT/FEAST/FOOD/HUNGRY/TURKEY

Well…is it it just me, or do you feel hungry after today’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY choices?

I thought of a second song to add to the banquet of songs we have had today. It certainly fits into the “dessert” category.

When I was a child, we always expected some kind of pudding after lunch and dinner. That was usually some fruit or a biscuit or a fruity yoghurt. On a Sunday, it would be a real treat though, trifle or gateaux. Yum! We always left the dinner table on a sweet note. We were told we had to finish our main meal if we wanted some dessert.

shall iBut as an adult, desserts are a no-no in general. Although I always enjoy them on special occasions or when I am a guest at someone else’s dinner party.

I do love making desserts for other people though! I have a very sweet tooth, and I have to stay away from them because…”ONCE ON THE LIPS, FOREVER ON THE HIPS!”

Anyway…I love all desserts. I don’t think I ever tried a dessert I didn’t like! This song captures exactly how I feel towards puddings. It it of course The Four Tops, I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)

Be good! Be grateful! Eat your greens.

Always save room for dessert!!!

Ooh, sugar pie, honey bunch
You know that I love you
I can’t help myself
I love you and nobody else

In and out my life (In and out my life)
You come and you go (You come and you go)
Leaving just your picture behind (Ooh)
And I’ve kissed it a thousand times (Ooh)

When you snap your finger or wink your eye
I come a-running to you
I’m tied to your apron strings
And there’s nothing that I can do, ooh

I can’t help myself
No, I can’t help myself

‘Cause sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
I’m weaker than a man should be
I can’t help myself
I’m a fool in love, you see

Wanna tell you I don’t love you
Tell you that we’re through and I try
But every time I see your face (Can’t help myself)
I get all choked up inside

When I call your name
Girl, it starts to flame (Burning in my heart, tearing it all apart)
No matter how I try
My love I cannot hide

‘Cause sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
You know that I’m waiting for you (Waiting for you)
I can’t help myself
I love you and nobody else, ooh

Sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
I’d do anything you ask me to (Ask me to)
I can’t help myself
I want you and nobody else, ooh

Sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
You know that I love you (Love you)
I can’t help myself
No, I can’t help myself, ooh

Sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
You know that I love you
