Slower than molasses
sweet as sugar candy
Please, please can you hurry up
we're going to be late!

Slower than molasses
sweet as sugar candy
The tickets booked for six o clock
The train it will not wait

slower than molasses
sweet as sugar candy
why does it take you such an age
your image to create

slower than molasses
sweet as sugar candy
frustration at your tardiness
will always be my fate

I also didn't know the expression "slower than molasses", but in my country we say "Slow as molasses in winter" which means pretty much the same I guess.
