Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Musical - The Candy Man Lyrics


"The Candy Man" is a song performed by Christian Borle (Wonka).

[Wonka:]
Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it with dew
Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two:
The candy man
Oh, the candy man can
Yes, the candy man can, 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

[spoken]
My name is Willy Wonka. I make chocolate: quite simply,
the greatest invention in the entire history of the world.
Whoever could there be who doesn't love the tooth-tickling,
tongue-tasticical taste of a sweet bar of soft milk chocolate?
Except dogs, of course; it's poisonous to dogs. But apart from dogs, [clears throat].
There comes a time (time, time), in every chocolatiers' life (life, life),
when the chocolate he makes turns dark (dark, dark) and bitter (bitter, bitter);
And that's when he knows it's time to lay down his spoon,
to hand it over to someone else, someone new. The only question is:

Who can take a rainbow
Wrap it in a sigh
Soak it in the sun and make a strawberry lemon pie
[spoken] I need to find a new me.
A candy man
[spoken] But who can catch a candy man? Oh!
A candy man can
Yes, a candy man can, 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good
[spoken] I have to go back out into the world. The world.
I haven't been out there in a very, very long time. Well, what are you waiting for? Let's go!

The Candy Man makes everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes
You can even eat the dishes

[Ensemble:] Who can take tomorrow ([Wonka:] Who can take tomorrow)
[Ensemble:] Dip it in a dream ([Wonka: Dip it in a dream)
[Wonka:] Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
[Ensemble:] The candy man (The candy man) ([Wonka:] The candy man)
[Wonka:] Oh, the candy man can ([Ensemble: The candy man can)
[Wonka:] Yes, the candy  man can,
'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good. And the world tastes good
[All:] 'Cause the candy man makes it shine!
