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
