The Lyrics

Your tributes to John Candy so far have been pathetic (except the ones done by sctv cast members). You want a tribute to the great man? I'll give you one that will blow your mind.
This is a tribute to the greatest and best guy in the world....Candy!

Long time ago me and Eugene Levy here
we was hitchhikin' down a long and lonesome road.
All of a sudden, there stood this rich guy in the middle... of the road.
And he said:
"Who is the best comic fat guy in the world with the heart of gold?"
Well me and Eugene, we looked at each other,
and we each said... "Candy."
And we thought of the first name that came to our heads
That name just happened to be
our best bud John Candy, it was our best bud John Candy.

Listen to your words and maybe you'll see.
That there's no one who can liked as much as J.C
Because he was John Candy.
This fat man was a hero and a gentleman.
He was so sweet, and he was so kind.
And he was so fun.

Needless to say, the rich guy was amazed.
He nodded his head three times.
And then he was done.
He asked us: "Is he an angel?"
And we said, "Nay. But he's John Candy."
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah,
Ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh!

Candy was the best guy in the world, yes.
And this is what we call our tribute.
Let's remember the greatest guy in the world.
This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest guy in the world.
All right! He was The Greatest guy in the World,
All right! He was the best funny guy and the greatest man in the world.
[2-part skat]
And the peculiar thing is this my friends:
the guy we told him about on that fateful night it hadn't heard of or seen Uncle Buck.
This is just a tribute! You gotta believe it!
And we miss John Candy! He was so awesome!
Ah, Candy, what a guy, what a cool guy.
So surprised to find you don't believe it.
All right! All right!
Thank you. Me and Eugene Levy will be posting the music vid on our website soon.
