The Lyrics

This is a tribute to the greatest chub comic (chubby comedian) ever: John Candy.
I knew a man John Candy
And he'd act for you
And he wore great shoes.

With blondish hair, nice lookin shirt
And lovely pants
He would do the old routine

He would make you laugh
make you laugh
Then he would smile at you

He told me of the time he worked on
those tv shows

We spoke with stories for all those years
Of how his friends and he
They would travel about.

But in March 94 he up and died.
He up and died
And still all these years we still grieve.

He used to say..."I love to make people laugh and cheer em up"
At every chance that i get
For some kicks and fun

But nowdays i'm not alive
But at least i made it past 35.
You see son, i ate a bit

Then he shook his head
Oh lord when he shook his head
I could swear I heard someone say please

Mister John Candy
Call him John Candy
Mr John Candy we miss you, we loved you lots.

We miss you lots Mr John Candy.
I hope you enjoyed this- i appologise if i may have skipped pacing a bit but other than that- enjoy this and gives nothing but your best marks.

Dude, are you really Dan Aykroyd?

It's Dan Akyroyd here, and even if it was spelled the same my guess would be no.

Dylan and Ethan: No, it's not Dan Aykroyd. It's most likely Dr Music. For one, Dan would know how to spell his last name, and for two, John Candy, Saturday Night Live, SCTV and British grammar all reek of everyone's least favorite banned parodist. (Linda Terhune is probably more popular.) Please delete this parody.
