lyrics

The block was crawling with cops
the night Ms. Lollipop
went out for butterscotch
and got her head cut off

You'll find whodunnit slides
down licorice alleyways
leaving a trail of Icee slush
and we all know what they all say

When he jellyrolls on the scene
all the gumdrops scream
"Peppermint!"

But cops don't talk to gumdrops
when they buy witnesses
Thank you for your assistance, miss
now let us handle this

Your Honor, this snowman
is guilty of first-degree murder
or I'll outrun the Gingerbread Man
Ladies and gentlemen of Candyland
I think we've got our man

The fudge fuzz in their sugar coats
They work the scene
We'll lick this sucker they grunt
through sweet tart rotten teeth

then from the back of the crowd
a little gumdrop stood
and waved her fist around
and yelled as loud as she could:

“We know your man
When he rolls by, the gumdrops scream
his name and run away
He is a monster, mister, mercy!
Make him pay!”

When he jellyrolls on the scene
all the gumdrops scream
"Peppermint!"

But cops don't talk to gumdrops
when they buy witnesses
Oh, how smart he is
icicles leave no fingerprints!

Your Honor, this snowman
is guilty of first-degree murder
or I'll outrun the Gingerbread Man
Ladies and gentlemen of Candyland
I think we've got our man

When he jellyrolls on the scene
all the gumdrops scream
"Peppermint!"

But cops don't talk to gumdrops
when they buy witnesses
There must’ve been some malice
In that old silk hat they found, I guess

Your Honor, this snowman
is guilty of first-degree murder
or I'll outrun the Gingerbread Man
Ladies and gentlemen of Candyland
I think we've got our man
