  • Come on baby, let me take you by the hand
    Come on sugar, let me take you by the hand
    Go for me, let me be
    All your own candy, your candy

    Come on baby, I love your honey lovin' ways
    Baby sweet thing, I love your honey lovin', your honey lovin' ways
    Come to me, let me be
    All your own candy, your candy
    Candy man

    Come on woman, gonna treat you right
    Give you candy kisses every single night

    Candy man, candy man
    Candy man, candy man
    Go for me, let me be
    All your own candy, your candy

  • Chuckie from KcmoCandy man song by Roy is not the same song...not even close
  • Shane from Usa MichiganDon from New Zealand

    "Candyman" is Sammy Davis Jr.'s song, also actor Gene Wilder did it Willy Wonka. "Candy Man" (with a space and two caps) is Roy Orbison's song. Man, I wish he didn't die... He was still young enough to do more. My favorite Roy song is "You Got It" 1988. I do a Country Version.
  • Terry from Willmar, MnYou need to check the song out you're commenting on, Don. That's a TOTALLY different song from this Orbison classic.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyRoy's backing band released a record of their own in 1967, it was titled "Georgia Pines" and it peaked at No. 81 and stayed in the Top 100 for five weeks!!!
  • Don from Auckland, New ZealandI know that Sammy Davis Jnr [of rat pack fame] made a hit out of Candyman. From all accounts he did not want to sing it, but he did and it was one of his greatest hits
