Song Lyric Sunday —- Candy Girl

For this week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme, the suggestion comes from Angie of King Ben’s Grandma to focus on Sweet, Honey, Sugar, Candy, or Chocolate. My selection is the song “Candy Girl” from Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. When I was growing up, The Four Seasons was my favorite group and I bought all of their record (45s). “Candy Girl” was not my favorite. Not like “Sherry” or “Walk Like a Man” or “Rag Doll” or “Dawn,” but still, a good song nonetheless.

“Candy Girl” was a hit single recorded in 1963 by the Four Seasons. It was written by Larry Santos, the first original Four Seasons single not composed by group member Bob Gaudio and/or the band’s producer Bob Crewe. The song reached number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number 13 on the R&B chart, the last of the group’s entries to make the R&B chart.

This simple Doo-Wop styled ballad is about a guy who had been searching for a girl to love and this song is about having finally found her and about how great she made him feel.

Here are the lyrics to “Candy Girl.”

I've been a-searchin' all this wide world
Now finally I've found my
Candy girl
Candy girl

I found me a girl (candy girl)
She sets my heart a-whirl (candy girl)
With huggin' (huggin') and kissin' (kissin') and lov-in'
(She's mine) mi-ine (mine) mine
Whoa-oa-oa-oh-oh (candy girl)

We get along so well (candy girl)
I know just why I fell (candy girl)
She's thrillin' (thrillin') oh, chillin' (chillin'),
Yeah she's so divine
(She's mine) mine (mine) mine
Whoa-oa-oa-oh-oh (candy girl)

When we're out together
Everyone knows the way we feel
We both seem to glow with the glow of a love
And it's plain to see
Our love is real

I'm happy as can be (candy girl)
She vows eternally (candy girl)
To hold me (hold me) and love me (love me)
Until the end of time
(She's mine) mine (mine) mine

Candy girl
Candy girl
Candy girl
Candy girl
Candy girl
Candy girl
Candy girl

    After Cain killed Abel, he married his two sisters, Sugar Cain and Candy Cain. Thanks for sharing this old classic Fandango.
