Lyrics

Sweet Obsession
Words and music by Diana Di Gioia

Give me one sweet obsession
How I spend my nights longing for you
I believe you could cure my depression
Or chase away these January blues
Give me one taste of pleasure
When only one pleasure will do
Well, my lover may be gone, but chocolate lives on
I will never get over loving you


My dear, your hershey’s kisses
Were your earliest tokens of love
And when I found you in my tollhouse cookies
I knew that I could never get enough
And I know you loved peanut butter
But I believed we could be together, too
It might be a rocky road
But my taste buds explode
When you do those creamy things you do

Well my darling, we hung out in bars for a while
The way most young folks do
And I learned you could be sweet and nutty
And dance a wild Charleston Chew
But lately I’ve seen your darker side
And I must admit it turns me on
And now I’ve met Lady Godiva
Those sweet vanilla days are gone

Oh Coco, I can’t stop thinking about you
You have truffled your way into my heart


I believe that your studies in Belgium and France
Have created true works of art
Your lava cake always makes me melt
And I know I’m not the only one
Baby turn me loose with your chocolate mousse
I can feel a stampede coming on

Babe you know I’ve tried to quit you
I’ve tried to put an end to our trysts
But when I’m near you, your scent is so intoxicating
I lose my power to resist
My friends say you’re no good for me
But the studies would disagree
You’re such a powerful anti-oxidant, baby
You even surpass Green Tea

Give me one sweet obsession
How I spend my nights longing for you
I believe you could cure my depression
Or chase away these January blues
Give me one taste of pleasure
When only one pleasure will do
My lover may be gone, but chocolate lives on
I will never get over loving you

When the world has done me wrong
It’s chocolate I can count on
I will never get over loving you
