Candy man
Salty dog
Candy man
Salty dog
Candy man
Salty dog
IF you won't be my candy man, I wont be your salty dog

Little red light
Little green light
Stop on the red, go on the green
Don't mess with me daddy in between

Run get the buggy
Get the babby some beer
I'd do anything in the god-almight y world if you just keep my candyman here.



From memory, from the van Ronk version

This was on his 'Bleecker and MacDougal' album which, more is the pity, no one has seen fit to reissue on CD as yet. I have not heard it, but would love to. In the meantime, the 2 CD set on Collector's Choice 'The Many Sides of Fred Neil' is a fine, but incomplete, chronicle of his work.

I suppose this is as good a place to ask as any:

What is a candy man? (I assume it's not just a man who sells candy.)

What is a salty dog?

p.s. I seem to recall there was a verse that ended: "I wish I was in New Orleens and a-sittin' on a candy stand."

There's a YouTube recording of Fred Neil's version from the 1965 Bleecker and MacDougal album Here:

CANDY MAN
(as recorded by Fred Neil)

Come on baby
Let me take you by your hand
Ah come on sweet thing
Let me take you by the hand

Can't you see I wanna be your candy candy
Your candy man

Come on sweet thing
I love you honey
Lovin' your honey lovin' ways
Come on sweet thing
I love you honey
Lovin' your honey lovin' ways

Can't you see oh you're for me
I wanna be your candy candy
Your candy man

Come on sweet thing
Gonna treat you right
Makin' candy kisses now
Every single night
Candy man candy man
Candy candy candy
Can't you see

I wanna be talk about your candy candy
Your candy man
Candy man now
Candy man
Candy man
Candy man
Candy man
