Kizza me now - C’mon baby .. kizza me now Kizza me now - C’mon baby .. kizza me now - ooh .. Mystery surrounds you Like a late night midnight creature feature My Achilles heel .. You’re just like popcorn to me I’ll grab you a soda Can we be sweet sixteen again Breath mints in my pocket Just in case you get some big ideas Kizza me now - C’mon baby .. kizza me now Kizza me now - C’mon baby .. kizza me now - ooh .. Stow you in the back row There’s an epic on the techni-big screen Turn down the floodlights I love it when they change the reels If I grab you a soda Can we be seventeen again Candies, mints and pixie sticks In case I think you’re up to something Kizza me now - C’mon baby .. kizza me now Kizza me now - C’mon baby .. kizza me now - ooh .. If I grab you a soda Can we be twenty-three again I’ll laugh when you kiss my cheek “Hey baby, what’s the big idea ..” Kizza me now - C’mon baby .. kizza me now Kizza me now - C’mon baby .. kizza me now Plant one on my cheek .. kizza me now .. Kizza me now .. c’mon baby, kizza me now Kizza me now .. c’mon baby, kizza me now Kizza me now .. c’mon baby, kizza me now Ooh .. kizza me now

Come to me in rags .. hair unbraided Come to me in silks .. jewels around your neck Here beside the hearth .. someone's waiting Try spending nights like I do .. Waiting for the day I've got a hunch there's secret stashes Little red heart banks hidden round the room Visit now and then .. so much dust has gathered You'll have to spend them soon And I know just the place .. Spend your love on me I'm penniless, a pauper I hear love sets you free Spend your love on me Oh baby .. I want to believe .. Come and spend your love here One little, two little, three little hearts Spend 'em all on me I'm standing on a ladder and hearts are hard to reach Spend your love on me I'm penniless, a pauper I hear love sets you free Spend your love on me Oh baby .. I want to believe Come and spend your love here My door is always open .. come and spend your love I'll always be at bargain prices .. come and spend your love So many discount deals .. hmm .. come and spend your love F-I-R-E fire sale .. come and spend your love Spend your love on me I'm penniless, a pauper I hear love sets you free Spend your love on me Oh baby .. I want to believe Come and spend your love here Spend your love on me Spend your love on me Spend your love on me .. why don't you Spend your love on me .. on me

Ginger bred girl in a big bowl of lemon drops That’s what it’s like for her Living in Candyland Peppermint twists - Cherry loves baby talk That is what life is like Living in Candyland Men just fall like leaves Vanilla cream is in the bath Spearmint on the breeze … in Candyland Stakes are high - walls are higher still You keep the sugar in When you’re living in Candyland Something for the dreams - cheesecake slumber Cars smell like cinnamon Parked there in Candyland She’s a tangerine Gin and tea in frosted glass Do hearts still fall like leaves … ooh … in Candyland Candy cane girl in a cotton candy world Smiles like caramel But only in Candyland Licorice whips - Cherry loves dirty talk Everything’s frosted … And waiting in Candyland Men just fall like leaves Vanilla cream is in the bath Spearmint on the breeze … in Candyland She’s a tangerine Gin and tea in frosted glass Do hearts still fall like leaves … ooh … in Candyland Peppermint twists - Cherry loves baby talk That is what life is like Living in Candyland Something for the dreams - cheesecake slumber Cars smell like cinnamon Parked there in Candyland Licorice whips - Cherry loves dirty talk Everything’s frosted … And waiting in Candyland Everything’s frosted and waiting in Candyland -

about

Ta Da! (finally …) Wow. One word. Making this album was a ton of fun but, man, there were a lot of gremlins flying around. Messing with the angels I suppose. Even the voting process got muddled but you found a way to vote for your faves. Kudos to you. I was more than a bit overwhelmed at the responses I received through the e-mail address on the website. All positive. Some of you listed three or four songs. Some of you listed all nine. Some of you listed ten, trying to convince me to drop the title track. The only one I picked. I also gathered up playlist stats and took those numbers into account as well. But it really came down to your votes. Your personal touch because this is your album. The one I always wanted to make for you. The one I could tour with. Thank-you for that. And you’ll love this. A surprise ending! There ended up being a tie for the tenth spot. I chose neither but do plan to release both as singles. “Candyland” was a last-minute add-on and I left it sparse. Spoiled fruit. Spoiled treats. Oh sure, we start out with breath mints in our pockets and end up with something for the dreams. And well, isn’t that what life is like living in Candyland? Blesses to you and thank you for the album. The Kizza Karma is all for you. xoRJ

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. "Sweet Tooth" is currently home to at least six tracks that will appear on our upcoming seventh release entitled "Piece Of Your Ghost". I'm currently close to release of two new singles for our "Or In Cyprus" collection. Just one release to date. Lonely soul ... needs pals. xoRJ ... more
