Tie it up with ribbon and give it to me
A little taste of heaven from the chocolate tree
That rich sweet and deadly taste raises my desire
Those two little syllables that set me on fire

Chocolate, mmm, ah…
Chocolate, mmm, ah…
Chocolat-te Chocolat-te chocolat-te…

You can keep your coffee; I don't want your tea
But anything that's chocolate, please bring it to me
I'll do almost anything, anything you fantasize
Just bring me heaven wrapped in gold, my own little paradise

Chocolate, mmm, ah…
Chocolate, mmm, ah…
Chocolat-te Chocolat-te chocolat-te…
Chocolat-te Chocolat-te chocolat-te…
