Do you remember the sweetness long ago The sweet sweet Ambrosia that used to flow Way back in the beginning, in the very early years of your life Sweeter than the sweetest Honey off the comb That used radiate like living colours inside of you That used fill your mind and all your senses Giving you a huge natural high Leaving you in awe and in Wonderland. Can you remember...can you remember back that far ?
Do you remember your parents trying to coax you to eat Your carrots and your greens, saying "Eat up now, they'll make you big and strong" And do you remember you resisting, thinking "I don't want to eat this stuff, it has no taste, it's like eating cardboard" There was only one thing the very young child wanted to eat Yeah! Sugar and other sugary things, sweets, chocolate and ice cream... Anything to remind him of that sweet Ambrosia inside Of that wondrous world within, where he came from.
Do you remember being out all day playing And then being called in for your dinner And how you felt - Dinner, huh! it was nothing but a tiresome chore You felt you didn't even need it That you could easily do without it That you had something else inside that was worth much much more.
A lady I knew died, she used feel very empty inside She used eat sugary things all the time But sadly she learned to her cost The sugar of this world is no Ambrosia.
Now I'm not a killjoy LoL, I like my sugary things too from time to time as a treat but not too much. And there's loads of non-sugar sweet things now with healthier sugar substitutes. Again I have vivid memories of the above.
