Sugar and Spice
Madness Lyrics


I thought I'd seen you round before
Then you came knocking on my door
You were only 16 years
And yet you took away all of my fears

I held your hand and then I knew
I was the one and only one for you
We were married at 21
Expecting any day our first born son

Yeah yeah yeah
And that sugar and spice
Everything was so nice
Now it's all come undone
Has it's course just been run

We bought a flat in Golders Green
A second hand fridge and a washing machine
You found a job in Marks and Spencers
Filling shelves sure it was pretty senseless

But every day at a half past five
I'd be waiting at the station for you to arrive
I'd take your hand and walk you home
And if it rained we'd shelter in the Hippodrome

Yeah yeah yeah
And that sugar and spice
Everything was so nice
Now it's just not the same
It's bitterness and pain

Oh it's over my head
And far too much has been said
Tell me what has become
You were my number one

Oooooh
That sugar and spice
Everything nice
Or just castles of sand
And very thin ice.

So why is not Lee mentioned in the sheet music of the song then, not on ANY sheet music sites around the World.

Why does it say "Word & Music by mike Barson......."

In all (and being a very amateur pianist) I have checked, I happen to work across the road from one of if not the largest sheet music distributor on the planet, although walking down the street you would not realize it if you were passing.

I had them check and you might want to inform Lee that he is not credited anywhere in ANY arrangement of the song for ANT instrument

Presto Music Leamington Spa, did the checking for me. Not only do they have a common or garden mucic shop they are also the "Behind The Scenes" company for distributing all sorts of music thoughout the World

Surely if they were both responsible then Lee should at least get a credit shouldn't he ?

Expecting any day our first born son

Yeah yeah yeah
And that sugar and spice
Everything was so nice
Now it's all come undone
Has its course just been run

We bought a flat in Golders Green
A 2nd hand fridge and a washing machine
You found a job in Marks and Spencer's
Filling shelves sure it was pretty senseless

But every day at a half past 5
I'd be waiting at the station for you to arrive
I'd take your hand and walk you home
And if it rained we'd shelter in the Hippodrome

Yeah yeah yeah
And that sugar and spice
Everything was so nice
Now it's just not the same
It's bitterness and pain

Oh it's over my head
And far too much has been said
Tell me what has become
You were my no.1

Oooooh
That sugar and spice
Everything nice
Or just castles of sand
And very thin ice

First time hearing this. Just separated after 19 years of marriage. You were there for me before and you're still there for me now lads. You may never know all the ways you touch people's lives but trust me, you make a difference.

The whole album is a work of genius. This is a band who just keep getting better. If people care to listen to the lyrics they might just realise that the material is pretty deep and often convey messages that make you sit up and actually think. What a simply brilliant band!!

I've always loved Madness - What more can I say except that I grew up listening to them. Glad they are still going and Mr Barson is still writing great music
