Liner Notes: 

I took the side dish challenge literally

Lyrics: 

Dessert

V1
I met her at the fair
by her blue ribbon cake
she smiled so sweetly
I did a double take…oh yeah
with eyes dark chocolate
and lips bright cherry
she looked so delicious
my knees grew weary

L
oh she was…

C
sweeter than sweet corn
softer than mashed potatoes
warmer than peach pie
more vibrant than tomatoes
she was more than a side dish
better than a main course
she was my dessert wish…
for a dessert kiss…

V2
she took me to her kitchen
poured me some sweet tea
baked fresh cream puffs
got cream all over me… oh yeah..
then back in her bedroom
under her paisley quilt
I kissed her lips fully
without any guilt

L
oh she was…

C
sweeter than sweet corn
softer than mashed potatoes
warmer than peach pie
more vibrant than tomatoes
she was more than a side dish
better than a main course
she was my dessert wish…
for a dessert kiss…

B
well that was years ago
I was only eighteen
when she shared the secrets
of county fair queens
I went away to school
she went on with her life
but I think of her often
on dessert nights…

L
oh she was…

C
sweeter than sweet corn
softer than mashed potatoes
warmer than apple pie
more vibrant than tomatoes
she was more than a side dish
better than a main course
she was my dessert wish…
for a dessert kiss…

How delightful! A bit corny of me but this is a true treat! So creative.

Oh, exceptional lyrics. Reminds me, I think I need to bake tarts.

I was hoping you'd take up this challenge. The way you paint pictures with words was begging to be applied to the side dish challenge.
This has amazing imagery, and then of course due to all the delicious foods you mentioned, also appealed to taste and smell.
Might sound crazy, but Prince came to mind...feels like he would've had a field day with these suggestive but playful lyrics.
Great stuff! (and now I want all kinds of food!)
