about

Even when you've got a sweetie of your own, we can all enjoy a look, right?

lyrics

Eye Candy is my favorite treat.
No calories, but tasty and sweet.
It's rude to stare, though, so please be discreet
Whenever you meet Eye Candy

Eye Candy, that guy's such a hottie;
Just to look at him makes me feel naughty.
Eye Candy—I can't look away.
Don't care if he's gay Eye Candy!

Scientists say that it's just not true
That happiness is greater for the beautiful few.
But I have to admit, between you and me,
Given a choice, I'd still rather be delicious...

Eye Candy: the Beautiful Peeps
Have to deal with all the crazies and creeps.
There are advantages to not being one,
No one assumes you're just dumb Eye Candy

--

Eye Candy. Hollywood knows
Eye Candy is what gets you to shows.
You'll tolerate a terrible plot,
As long as it's got Eye Candy.

Eye Candy is subjective, it's true.
What's hot to me may not be to you.
Brangelina doesn't do it for me,
But to you she might be–
I mean, to you he might be–
I mean, to you it might be Eye Candy.

There's a multi-billion dollar industry
That profits off of folks like you and me
Who spend all our time and energy
And hard-earned cash just tryin' to be
Somebody's..

Eye Candy, we're wired that way.
If you think about it, you're here today (because a)
Long, long time ago your dad saw your mom
And said "Om-nom-nom -- Eye Candy!"

I want summa that Eye Candy
Can't get enough Eye Candy
Everyone loves Eye Candyyyyy!
