Sickly sweet, his poison seeks For the young ones who don't understand The danger in his hands With a jaundiced wink see his cunning slink Oh trust in me my pretty one Come walk with me my helpless one Candyman
Syrup lies upon your tongue Ge latine saliva spills The flash of a guillotine a smile
Candyman - oh candyman No pity for him, their misery screams Unspeakable things
A cool missile, yes it's in his smile With open arms to welcome you Beware the masked pretender He always lies, this candyman Those lips conspire in treachery To strike in cloak and dagger, see!
Candyman - oh candyman And all the children, he warns ''don't tell,'' Those threats are sold With their guilt and shame they think they're to blane For candyman - oh candyman

"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
