Lyrics

Candy man, he's been and gone
My Candy man, he's been and gone
My Candy man, he's been and gone
Now I love everything in this Godalmighty world, God knows I do

Peppermint stick, got a little brass band
I got a peppermint stick, I got a little brass band
I got a peppermint stick, I got a little brass band
And I'm goin' down to the gate to score the Candy man stand

Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
'Cause I love everything in this Godalmighty world, God knows I do

Candy man, he's been and gone
My Candy man and his name was John
My Candy man, he's Morocco bound
Now I'd give everything in this Godalmighty world to bring my Candy man home

Black skin man, give me bad brew
Oh black skin man, give me bad brew
Oh black skin man, give me bad brew
Now I'd give everything in this Godalmighty world to bring me my Candy man home

Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
'Cause I love everything in this Godalmighty world, God knows I do

Candy man, I love the man
Yeah my Candy man, he gets me high
My Candy man, yeah I love the man
And I'd give everything in this Godalmighty world to bring my Candy man home
