"The Candy Man" (ook wel genoemd "The Candy Man Can") is een nummer dat oorspronkelijk geschreven is voor de film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory uit 1971. Het werd door Leslie Bricusse en Anthony Newley geschreven speciaal voor de film. De tekst komt niet voor in het originele boek van Roald Dahl (Charlie en de chocoladefabriek). Voor andere nummers uit de film zijn wel originele (aangepaste) teksten gebruikt. Het werd gezongen door Aubrey Woods, die Bill de snoepwinkeleigenaar in de film speelt. Het lied is vooral bekend door Sammy Davis Jr.'s cover, die op het studioalbum 'Sammy Davis Jr Now' verscheen.

Songtekst

Candy Man, Hey Candy Man
Everybody gather around and listen because,
I'm the Candy Man

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two
The Candy Man, oh 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, wrap it in the sky
Soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie
The Candy Man, the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love
and makes the world taste good

The Candy Man makes everything he bakes satisfying and delicious
Now you talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes

Oh, who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can '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 can even eat the dishes

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The Candy Man, the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love
and makes the world taste good
Yes, the Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love
and makes the world taste good
a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man
Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man
Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man
