MAC9 - March (Who's Your Daddy?) submission

**UPDATED for better clarity of the vocals overall and particularly in the final verse**

This has taken me ages, mostly due to my unfamiliarity with writing lyrics and recording vocals (also I havent heard any children's songs since I was about 7 so I had to do some research!). My wrote the lyrics by thinking about the things that children enjoy and trying to combine multiple subjects (candy and going to the zoo c'monnnn); the hard part was trying to think of animals that could either by rhymed with a candy or that could be alliterated with one.

I originally tried to do the vocals myself but found my voice to be too boomy, luckily my good friend Frederico Allevato di Puttanesca a la Braziliana visited from Norway so I had him do the singing instead.

----------

We got purple peppermint porcupines,
covered in sticky porcupine spines.
Magical cocoa unicorns,
with great big chocolate unicorn horns

----------

Welcome to the Candy Zoo
Lets have an adventure, just me and you
Well get a map and go wherever you want to

----------

Theres the wizard lizard who spends his time
Conjuring candied lemon and lime
Liquorice fish live in this lake
all they do is bake birthday cake

----------

Welcome to the Candy Zoo
Lets have an adventure, just me and you
Well get a map and go wherever you want to

----------

If you're thirsty we can get some drinks
Fizzy juice from the lollipop lynx
Next stop the giant jellybean giraffe
Have you seen one? I promise youll laugh

----------

Welcome to the Candy Zoo
Lets have an adventure, just me and you
Well get a map and go wherever you want to

----------

FUNKY MONKEY SOLO!

----------

Look, its the underground mole patrol
Crawling around in their Tootsie Roll hole
A cookie dough crow flew overhead
He landed and smiled and then he said

----------

You're always welcome at the Candy Zoo
What a great adventure, just me and you
Come back soon and play whenever you want to

Why do I like this so much?

I have no idea ... and don't think I care. Simplistic yet complex, childish yet speaks to an adult audience, appealing to listen to yet kinda creepy .... Keep it up!!!
