D     Dm                    A     Cdim
Candy    I call my sugar "Candy"

                     Bm7-5   E7
Because I'm sweet on Candy

            Bm7-5 E7  A  Edim  E7  Cdim
And Candy's sweet on me.

B9  A7   A7+5    D       Dm
She un - der - stands me,

                   A   Cdim
My understanding Candy,

                   Bm7-5  E7
And Candy's always handy

            E9   Fdim   A
When I need sym - pa - thy.


   C#7  C7   B7        F#m7 Gdim C#7
I wish that there were four  of  her

   F#       F#7      Cdim     F#7
So I could love much more of her;

Bm7-5    B7   Bm7-5     B7        
She has taken  my  complete heart --

E7                Bm7-5 E7  A7      A7+5
Got a sweet tooth  for  my sweet - heart.

D     Dm                     A     Cdim
Candy    it's gonna be just dandy

                  Bm7-5   E7
The day I take my Candy

              E9  Fdim  A
And make her mine all  mine.
