Candy Man lyrics

by Mississippi John Hurt

Well all you ladies, gather 'round,
the good sweet candy man's in town,
he's the candy man,
he's the candy man

He's got a stick o' candy that's 9 inch long
that he sells as fast as hog chews his corn,
he's the candy man,
he's the candy man.

CHORUS You and the candy man, you getting' mighty thick,
Uh huh, uh huh, I believe you stuck
on the candy man's stick,
Uh huh, uh huh

His candy stick don't melt away,
it just gets better,
so the ladies say,
he's the candy man,
he's the candy man

He sold some candy to sister bad,
the very next day she took all he had,
he's the candy man,
he's the candy man

CHORUS

You all heard what sister Joan said,
she always takes the candy stick to bed,
he's the candy man
he's the candy man

Don't stand close to the candy man,
he'll ease a stick of candy in your hand,
he's the candy man,
he's the candy man

CHORUS

So all you ladies, gather 'round,
the good sweet candy man's in town,
he's the candy man,
sweet candy.
