Song Lyric Sunday 12/31/17 – The Candy Man

A song about candy or sweets? A bit of a strange topic, but an interesting one for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.

As far as my thoughts on this, the only song that came to mind for me was “The Candy Man” as featured in the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and as made famous by Sammy Davis Jr. (written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley). However, I just know someone will duplicate this selection, so I’m going to do something totally wild and crazy here to make this post unique among the ones who duplicate this pick.

Some might post the movie version of the song or Sammy Davis Jr.’s version, but not me. I want my post to be something entirely different; something nobody will duplicate. So what am I doing? I’m posting MY OWN COVER of the song. Yes, this is ME performing my own rendition of the song. It’s just me, a guitar and a crappy computer mic (so please don’t diss the audio quality). I should also say I’m VERY rusty, so please don’t be too hard on me. I know I’m not the best guitar player or singer. You don’t have to tell me that, and I’m already nervous enough making myself vulnerable in this way, so please be nice. Please. πŸ˜₯

Who can take a sunrise
(Who can take a sunrise)
Sprinkle it with dew
(Sprinkle it with dew)
Cover it in chocolate
And a miracle or two
The candy man
(The candy man)
The candy man can
(The candy man can)
The candy man can cause he
Mixes it with love and
Makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow
(Who can take a rainbow)
And wrap it in a sigh
(Wrap it in a sigh)
Soak it in the sun and
Make a tasty lemon pie
The candy man
(The candy man)
Oh the candy man can
(The candy man can)
The candy man can
Γ‚β€˜Cause he
Mixes it with
Love and
Makes the world
Taste good

The candy man makes
Everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Talk about your
Childhood wishes
You could even eat
The dishes

Who can take tomorrow
(Who can take tomorrow)
And dip it in a dream
(Dip it in a dream)
Separate the sorrow
And collect up all the cream
The candy man
(The candy man)
Oh the candy man can
(The candy man can)
The candy man can cause he
Mixes it with love and
Makes the world
Taste good

The candy man can cause he
Mixes it with love and
Makes the world
Taste good

Well there you have it. If you have something hateful to say, please move along. I don’t have time for that shit. I was scared to death to do this. Please don’t be too hard on me. Thank you.

  1. One of my favorite movies!! The original of course. Gene Wilder IS Willy Wonka.
    BRAVO πŸ™ŒπŸ‘ Not a thing wrong with your voice or your playing. When I sing that song (or any song) around the house, Ben tells me to “shut up”. I guess I hurt his earsπŸ™‰πŸ˜« I *do* make him change his statement to “be quiet please”. Anyway, he heard your version and didn’t snatch the phone to stop it, so you didn’t hurt his ears either.
    Are you going to karaoke your choice every Sunday?
    I’m rambling… WELL DONE MY FRIEND!!!πŸ’₯πŸ’«πŸ’πŸŽΈπŸŽ€πŸŽΆβœ¨πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸ†β€
